Just bought this lovely little pin-pallet miniature, whose I think is Plate 1406C (KS) in the Terwilliger 'bible'. The back plate measures 4.35 x 5.2mm and has the strange KS symbol, BUT no other name as in the Plate. Anyone know anything about this clock? Is it a Kern & Söhne clock manufactured in Germany? When?
I did not know that there were pin-pallet escapements in 400 day clocks. The last pin-pallets I experienced were in a saw-teeth clock, on which I spent dozens of hours unsuccessfully trying to re-drill and reset the pins. Hope these don't break or bend!
To set the beat, I must know if the pallet anchor is fitted on the arbor with friction, ie I must hold the arbor and turn the pallet anchor.
Sorry - all these questions.
Sad to find that it works a dream, although it arrived through the UK and French postal services, well-packed and pendulum arrested - was hoping to have to mend it!!!
