What a great idea for this dedicated section for wood movement clocks! Other than American clocks, I suspect there will also be some interesting Black Forest related posts pass through this section as well. I thought I would take the opportunity to upload a few additional photos of a wood-wheel cuckoo clock here to get things going in that direction. The clock was shared previously, a few months back in another section... but these new photos show the movement with the shield removed. The back of the movement also removed giving a good view of the count wheel. The only gear in the movement which is brass is the escape wheel, the escapement is located above the top plate of the movement. This is a representation of a first generation BF cuckoo clock, known as a wood wheel paper shield cuckoo.
