    Can anyone out there help me identify this movement. It is unmarked, and has heavy brass plates, a dead beat escapement and four wheels in the time train.
    Thanks John B.

    Thanks Phil and Charles the info is much appreciated. I hope to restore it and perhaps find an old case to put it in. John

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me what the function of the small pin attached to the end of the rack might be. Thanks! John

    John,

    It looks to me like the winding arbor on the time side has been bushed with a glob of solder? Needs to be bushed.
    Otherwise, this is a very old movement.

    John,

    I think it was added to assist the rack to "fall". If the movement is cleaned up, the rack should free-fall with the "pin" removed.

    Hi Phil,
    I see what you mean, as the gathering pallet rotates the rack will move to the right and eventually the flare (or what ever that piece is called) attached to the gathering pallet arbor, will contact the pin in question, and stop the strike. Thanks. John

    Maybe you should consider making a case for your clock.

    An authentic Scottish case might be difficult, but a crafts period case ("Mission Style") should not be too difficult.

    If you live close to Columbia,Pa. drop in the NAWCC museum and school with the movement and the good people there will more than likely identify the movement as closely as anyone.
    (How's that for one sentence?)

    John, are you sure that it has a deadbeat escapement? I've seen dozens of movements like this one, and they all had recoil escapements. It's not that clocks didn't have deadbeats then; I've just not seen a movement exactly like this that did.
