• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Tony,
Not a good idea to run a movement at the edge of a shelf like that. Bad things can happen.
Others will know about dating your clock.
Good luck, Willie X

This is one of Kienzle's earliest Westminster chime movements, made around 1908-1912. The countwheel chime mechanism and removal spring barrel frame are notable features not present on later movements.
