need a part! I have a movement with a anchor and a crown on top. Under the anchor is SILESIA on the back plat is P26 I need a canon pinion. I think that's the name, it's the gear and shaft that holds the minute hand and activates the strike. If you can help me out that would be very cool. Thanks, Bill

Yes. Please take some digital pictures of your movement--not the markings on the plate, but of the entire movement plus the area where the part is damaged or missing, plus pictures of any extra parts that seem to belong to the movement but which are not currently attached.

Almost all clock factories went out of business in the 1930's if not earlier, which means that manufacturers' names and model numbers are not generally useful. That's why we need pictures. A description of what happened to the clock might also be helpful: why do you think you need a cannon pinion?

In the box where you type, click on the 'FROM PC' button and select your pics from your computer. Then they should upload for you right to the post.
