there`s a wheel missing , and other parts for the chime . I have no idea what there are call . It say on pic on top Burn`s at flouch .It would help a lot in trying to identify your clock if we could see the whole thing, case, dial etc..
What parts are you looking for?
I think you may have mis-read the wording. I suspect it says 'plough', not 'flouch'.It say on pic on top Burn`s at flouch .
Apart from the bell, which Andy Dervan has mentioned, and which is easily replaceable, what other parts do you think are missing?there`s a wheel missing , and other parts for the chime
The dial does look to be for the Scottish market, some were painted in Scotland too but a lot were painted in Birmingham. The rack may point to more local input.The dial looks Scottish, with maybe an allusion to Burns, "To a mouse..." , or his fascination with the plough/ploughman. The case looks American, though some Scottish cases can have the look, or is it the other way around.
I use the same knots, but I have always put the gut onto the movement first and finished on the seatboard when I have enough line. It may be because I'm a beginner, I just put on enough line for the clock I'm working on. I only work on my own clocks so I haven't done that many.Also looks like you have wire rope lines there? If you ever have the movement apart, suggest you replace with natural gut. made a video about it here...
