I bought a clock off craig's list for 40.00 today and it's missing the weight's, the movement looks very good and I can't find the weight for the movement and what size the shells are. The clock is 52 inch tall and only 2 weights and movement has only 80cm pendulum and a 79p stamp on it.thanks guy's.

Sounds like their big wall clock movement. I have all the specs in my notes but if I remember correctly there are two different strike configurations, with differering weight requirement. Cable drums wind in opposite directions with both cable tails going into slots in the center of the flat plate at the bottom of the movement?? Yeah, a picture would be good.

My notes were not as good as I thought. The P series take 50mm shells and 7.7 (?) pound lead weights. The bim bam double hammer movement comes with slightly heavier weights. The movement is usually on a bracket.

I would just order 48 or 50 mm shells and the biggest lead weights that will fit it. You may have to make the lead fillers.

There is a similar H series movement. It takes a 60 mm shell with a 9 pound weight. The H has its pendulum hanger on the front. These were made for bigger clocks and usually sit on a seat board.
