Can anyone help me ID this Urgos movement from an Art Deco shelf clock case? Thanks, Danny

It should be marked on the lower left bottom of the back plate, something like UW06xxxx.

If unmarked, a photo of the case could possibly help. Someone may have one with a marked movement in it.

The only stampings are the ones you see in pic 1. It just has Urgos and the number in the middle. I'm thinking the 13 could be 1913 but I really am just wishful guessing.

Does anyone have one of these to spare? I botched the pivot repair on this one. I'm still working on it but I don't know if I can fix it. Thanks, Danny

Possibly a UW06 series. You can look that one up and see what it looks like. They made versions of the 06 for probably 30 years, maybe more. Willie X

Yeah, Will. I need the arbor. I guess you can't see that the pivot is missing on the pinion end. It was bent and when I was attempting to straighten it, Well. I was trying out my new Sherlline on my very first pivot replacement and the only bit I had was dull and I tried to sharpen it and (see how deep I'm getting) I got a lopsided bit end. Well, It cut much better but it walked and broke through the side of the arbor. It was dumb for me to try that but the new bit I ordered is 10 Days out.
Anyway, sorry to vent but?? Yes, I need the arbor, the fan is fine.
I'm still going to try to repair this one just for the experience but that will be later.
Thanks for the help and advice, Danny

I’ll look through my box of flies tomorrow and let you know.

Thank you, Will. It's hard to learn some of these things on your own. I'm going to keep trying.

Thanks, Will. I found one at Hermle Canada for 5.75 but the shipping is 48.00. I'll keep looking and if no one has one available I'll keep trying to repair this one. I've got to get better at my lathe.
Thanks for the help, any suggestions are welcome, Danny

If you did not ruin the pinion completely, you may be able to turn down the outside end enough to drill a new hole and have enough of the pinion left to work.
