I have a Sessions banjo clock with electric movement, which has two worm gears. The worm gear furthest from the motor (brass, about 3/8 in long, 3/16 in dia, ~20 threads / in) is quite worn, but rest of movement is in good condition. Does anyone know a source of parts for these clocks?

I don't know this movement, but surely a worm can be made quite easily - you just need to start with a piece of threaded rod/ someone with a screwcutting lathe/ threading die?

Sure is. The worn worm in my clock is seen in the foreground in the picture.

Jeff....I sent you a private message with my email address. Let me know if the one without
the motor will help you out.
