    Hi all.
    I'm not sure where I should post this. I hope this is ok as I'm not looking to sell these, but I'm up to my armpits in clock stuff recently and have no use for these. I was wondering if they would be worth donating to someone maybe doing a workshop on pin pallets, or just needs similar practice movements. They're new old stock, but weren't stored well, and there is a bit of rust on the long mounting bolts and the backs of some of the dials, but the movements themselves seem ok. Also have a box of backs, nuts, and winders for them. Or should I just bin them?
    All the best
    Dan.

    Are all the movements the same? Which diameter do they have? There may be members looking for a replacement because this kind of movement is often badly worn in clocks that have been running most of the time.

    Hi Uhralt.
    So far I've only looked in 5 boxes of 10 and they are all, bezel and all, 63mm just under 2 1/2 inches. Some with Roman numerals as well. I will check the rest soon.
