    With reference to American wood-plate, wood wheel, wood pinion, wire arbor clocks with no bushings, wood bushings or bone bushings; most agree no lubrication except for the 'scape wheel pivot in the brass bridge.

    On the other hand, Black Forest wood plate clocks generally have long rolled brass bushings pressed into the wood plates. These of course require lubrication.
