I am preparing to replace the scroll on my Silas Hoadley pillar and scroll clock. This clock is one of the ones with the misspelled label i. e. Hoadly. There was an article about this clock in the 2020 Cog Counters Journal. In preparing that article, I realized that the scroll had been replaced at some point and was not correct for the clock. The current scroll is one piece with no plinth in the center, has the grain running horizontal, and does not extend all the way to the corner blocks. It looks like the original scroll was cut from the clock leaving the small original tails at the ends. I plan to make a new two piece scroll with a center plinth, vertical veneer grain and match the finish to the rest of the clock. I am assuming that whoever made the replacement used the original scroll as a pattern and that the center plinth should be the same width as the corner blocks, but that is just a guess on my part. If anyone can help with dimensions from other Hoadley P & S clocks, or advice, I would appreciate it.
