Extended Post style Clock Mounts for German Units. These mounts fit the Hermle 341 / 141 / 241 OR the 351 / 1051. The Hermle movement number is stamped on the back plate of the movement itself.
The posts have internal threads on one side that screw right onto the threads of the movement post. There are four 2-inch (5cm) posts in a set, which come with washers and hex nuts.
- Take the hex nut off one of the movement pillar posts.
- Use this hex nut to screw the post onto the threads of the pillar post.
- Do this for each corner on the back side of the unit.
- Drill holes in a mounting board or the back of the wood case. The threads of the post will poke through the board.
- Put the movement nut on the end of the post with its washer. This will enable the movement to mount onto the back of the wood case, while also extending out enough for the pendulum or bells.
One of the benefits of this type of mount is that it can give a round dial in a regulator style case the appearance of floating in the air. No mounts will be visible from the front.
Another benefit is that these mounts can be used to extend the movement out from the back of the case, which can be necessary if the movement is large or if the case has a deep bezel.
Overall, Extended Post style Clock Mounts are a versatile and easy-to-use option for mounting German clock movements.
