    I have a clock in for repair , that has the same movement. The clock is unsigned. The owner was supposed to send me some images of the case. I forget that I have a phone/camera at times. ;(. The case is more of one that is closer to ST#1 then a banjo. The movement is rabbeted into the backboard.... sort of unusual. He bought it from a Vermont auction house.

    There are some minor differences. It does not have your version of maintaining power. There some extra components on the winding arbor, a second click and a wire spring that may have been an earlier version of the maker's maintaining power.

    I timed out before adding pictures of the movement mentioned in the previous post.

    Hi Ralph...

    If you have the Paul J. Foley book “Willard’s Parent Time Pieces” look on pages 152 and 153. It looks a lot like a movement made by Jonathan Billings...

    Joe,

    Thanks. I knew I've seen it before. I could not put my hands on my Foley book. Disorganization. :(
