• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

Hey Everyone! I just wanted to finally g you an update from my post: New Clock Acquisition from August 25, 2019 that our clock is working great and keeping excellent time! So far I’ve run it at 12 hour intervals and haven’t yet tested the chimes yet. I’m a little nervous about that because of previous damage and repairs done to that section of the clock. I’ll include pictures. I’ve spent a lot of time reading posts from Bangster , R. Croswell and others in which I’m very appreciative for their advice, experience and kindness. I will make a donation by the end of this month and urge others, particularly nonmembers that have benefited, to do the same. THANKS AGAIN and stay well. Best Regards, Robbie

Robbie - the term is strike. These are 30 hour time and strike movements. Chiming is a term for an additional complication used on some 8 day bras tall clock movements not these simpler 30 hour wooden movements.

Thanks Andy! That makes about the difference between strike and chime especially since I have a grandfather clock that does both! Robbie

This leaves the impression that chime movements were/are used only in tall(-case) clocks, which, of course, is not true. I won’t mention your unfortunate misspelling of “brass.”
