REPLACEMENTS

Antique clock movement replacement

AUTHENTIC EIGHT DAY AMERICAN STYLE

Solid brass movements that are excellent replacements for movements that are beyond repair or to put in a new clock. Accurately reproduced American style movement reproduced with heavy plates, oil sinks and front mount pendulums. The center shaft / arbor configuration will match up to many original dials. All styles come either just the movement or you can get it complete with hands, key, gong, gong base and pendulum. The "drop" is the pendulum length from the center of the handshaft down to the bottom of the rating assembly.

Build a Clock

This kit does not include the clock dial. If you are building a clock, then a dial will have to be chosen, or made, and the winding holes to wind up the clock will also need to be drilled. This is an 8 day movement, so once a week it would need to be wound up. Everything else comes with this kit if you order the kit option. You would need to check the depth of the clock case and consider the movements minimum depth will be about 2 inches more than the hand shaft length. The pendulum length is called the DROP on this unit. The drop is the pendulum length from the shaft that the clock hands go on, down to the very bottom of the pendulum rating nut threads. This measurement is approximate and will vary if a different pendulum assembly is used, or a lighter / heavier pendulum bob is used.

Repair a Clock

If just the movement option is selected, it will be a good replacement for many of the antique clock movements such as Sessions or New Haven and others. Be sure that all of the measurements listed match up with your current movement. This means that if you are replacing an antique mantle clock movement, be sure the hand shaft matches up and the distance between the hand shaft and the winders of the clock also match. The hand shaft is the shaft that the clock hands are on that tell the time and to get the length matched up you would need the movement that is to be replaced out of your clock, and then measure the hand shaft from the front plate of the movement, all the way out to the end of the minute hand nut threads. The drop is the pendulum length from the shaft that the clock hands go on, down to the very bottom of the pendulum rating nut threads. This measurement is approximate and will vary if a different pendulum assembly is used, or a lighter / heavier pendulum bob is used.


Long Drop Clock

The long drop means the clock will have a longer overall pendulum length as described above at the place where it will keep the right time. These are very popular wall clocks that will have sometimes assorted pendulum styles. If replacing a unit, your pendulum will work as long as the drop is the same or made the same by altering the suspension wire and or the pendulum to create the correct overall length from the handshaft.
