    Hi guys, Im considering building a replica of the New Hampshire mirror clock. Does anyone know who makes a movement? This looks like a banjo movement turned on its side to me but I don't know the dimensions.

    For a long time Kilborn and Proctor, later Kilborn, Proctor, and Grass made replica wheelbarrow movements. Those are no longer available, but I did see a couple of new unused K&P movements at a mart recently. I have no idea who had them, I am just suggesting that some may be out and about uncased. I am not aware of anyone who offers them for sale new these days.

    Here is one I put together years ago using the gear train from a modern banjo clock (K&P in this case). I bought a number of raw gear trains from K&P back in the day for projects like this one. Their movement as they sold it did not fit this fellows case for reasons I don't remember. The 2nd photo is of a slightly different style, but still considered to be a wheel barrow movement by some. Please note the assembled one was not intended to fool anyone, the owner of the case wanted a movement built to fit his very nice case and dial and he had a limited budget
