Here are pictures of a Howard No. 2 time-only, manual-wind movement that is unused. Though it is still in its original location, its function has been replaced with an electric movement, seen affixed to the top of the mechanical movement. Those responsible for the clock are not interested in restoring it and maintaining it in place as a functional clock, and the opportunity has arisen to relocate the old movement to a public area of another building (a library), restore it, and have it operating with a dial to serve a useful purpose. Though I am not happy about moving the mechanism from its original location, I feel it is probably for the best in this case. I have some questions about the set up of the clock in order to design a proper enclosure and support for the weight in a public area. You can see the historic set up, with two direction-changing pulleys attached to the ceiling and a compound pulley above the weight. Is there a reason for the two-pulley set up, rather than having a single pulley at the ceiling? The set up allowed the weight to drop about 5 1/2 feet (the floor to ceiling height is 9 feet 6 inches, but the three pulleys (single plus compound) take up about 2 1/2 feet and the weight itself 1 1/2 feet). Without doing calculations on the movement, would anyone know if this amount of drop allows for a 7-day run time? Remember, there is a compound pulley, so the effective weight drop is 10 feet, if it were not compounded. Also, with the set up pictured, does each pulley attachment at the ceiling have to support only half the total weight? It is unknown whether we can support the weight from the ceiling in the new location or, more likely, will build a stand to support the weight at the correct height. I have been looking at designs for stands/enclosures of publicly-displayed tower clock movements (at the NAWCC Museum and what I can find on-line), but any suggestions would be appreciated. There will probably have to be an acrylic case around the movement to protect both the clock from the public and the public from the clock, and perhaps a separate shaft for the weight.--Jeremy .
