    I have a Daniel Pratt all wood gears--1839--does anyone know of a source for replacement wooden gears?

    Are you missing the wheel or is it broken? Do you have a photo? I live near Merritt's and they have a bin of used gears. They are not that hard to make if you have tools and aptitude. I suspect other members here make them as well.

    Daniel Pratt and his various companies were dealers of clocks made by others. Hard to tell who the maker is without pictures of the movement. Wheels and pinions can be repaired or replaced, and sometimes a donor movement can be found.

    If you can't make your own or repair what you have, google Don Bruno. He makes wooden gears.
