Hello, I've just recently joined this this outstanding forum. This Masonic tall clock was built by my great grandfather. Family legend is that most of the components were sourced from a walnut bed. The columns were architectural salvage from a house. I don't know when exactly it was made, but best guess is late 1800's. The case originally had wooden works. My grandfather removed the wooden works and installed an electric movement in the late 1950s. In the 1990s, my mother had a professional clocksmith remove the electric movement and install a David Lindow brass reproduction of a Willard tall clock movement (which it still has working in it today). Doing so involved a couple of minor modifications: 1) two holes for winding the weights were drilled and grommeted into the face with brass grommets and 2) the front glass door was converted from sliding (up) to swinging, since in many homes there is not enough ceiling clearance to raise the door and wind the clock. When I was a teenager back in the 1970s, I salvaged the old wooden works from my grandfather's dusty farm workshop and have hung onto it ever since. Since visiting this website, I believe I have identified it as a Silas Hoadley 30-day with second hand and calendar hand. I am thinking it might be fun to return the wooden works to functional order as a standalone display in and of itself. Here are some pictures of the clock case and works. I would welcome any comments from the experienced and knowledgeable community here. To untrained eye, the bell support is not correct for the works, there have been some old repairs to the gears, and some of the smaller gears appear very worn. There is one photo of all the loose "bits". The hour hand is missing, I am not sure the weight hooks and the winding string weights are original, and the little loose clip is a complete mystery. - Henry P.S. Excuse my shims...from reading this forum, I just learned about the importance of leveling the movement and setting the beat! These raw shims will be marked, cut, stained, and installed out of sight under the feet.
