    a neighbor has a grandfather clock 'built by a cabinet maker' for his family. i took some shots of the dial and movement but was unable to pull the hands and dial for better views.

    possible to id the movement from these limited photos?

    thx.

    Use a small mirror on the back plate. I'm sure you'll find
    the name of the manufacture, since the movement was bought
    for the purpose.
    You can put a mirror on a stick at a 45 degree angle.

    i have one of those mirrors, and of course didn't think to take it with me.

    thx for taking the time to respond... the previous time i was at that neighbor's house was maybe five years ago... just walked over there to see the clock because he mentioned he had one and i needed a diversion from doing my taxes. :cool:
