Discussion in 'Wood Movement Clocks' started by Donald P Bellamy, Jul 9, 2016.
would anyone know the maker and the appropriate year made?
A good resource for you the check is this issue of the Bulleting: http://www.nawcc.org/index.php/watch-a-clock-bulletin/past-issues-/453?task=view
Using certain movement characteristics, you should be able to "ID" and "date" your movements. It will also tell you which clock makers used those movements in clocks bearing their label.
Take a look and see how you do. I'm pretty sure I know who made the first one.
There is an Excel spreadsheet of Snowden Taylor's data that allows checking off individual characteristics and the resulting possible makers is shown. The download link at http://www.nawcc-index.net/Identification.php no longer seems to work. Perhaps someone has an active link to this document? I have a copy but can't post it because it is copyrighted. Good advice to everyone is when something useful is found on-line save a copy because the source site might no longer be available. The link RM posted of course is only helpful to NAWCC members.
The wooden escape wheel bridge in the first picture above is typical of Riley Whiting. The second picture seems to show where the escape wheel bridge has been moved and is an interesting and unusual (original?) design.
We have a link to the spreadsheet on the Cog Counters web site- look under "links".
