• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

This note is for gvsale:

Idly rummaging through your Flikr album, and saw the below photo. The clock is a post-1850 Model 4 Ephraim Byram. The flat-topped posts establish the year, the frame, the strike snail and the strike train second wheel with its lifting pins are diagnostic for the movement.

Don: I knew who made it, but when, that's different. It does need a few $k worth of repairs.

When was the last time you saw one? I'd like to get to Sag Harbor to see the one there.

I do have a piece of Dura-Bar to replace the broken section, but unfortunately time is short for projects. Going to be tricky duplicating some parts.
