Clock movement supplier
Hoping for help!
Many years ago I came across an article in 'Wood' magazine covering the making of a free standing clock - the brass movement (weight driven) came in kit form from 'The Clock Shop' in a town called Anaconda in Montana. The kit had to be polished up and assembled by the user. All the gears etc were exposed to show the clock workings.
Have had no luck chasing this over the WEB
Would appreciate if anyone can head me in the correct direction on how to obtain one of these units.
Thanks in advanceI'd give it all up - for a little bit more! Monty Burns

Talk to some of the clock movement suppliers that advertise in the Australian woodworking magazines. If you don't subscribe have a look in a Newsagent or local library.

Hermle have one, what you are seeking is a skeleton clock movement, this site may help
If you want to do a quartz model, Gary Pye has them for $25.00
The Hermle is a well made unit, but, at not much change out of $1K it should be.Stupidity kills. Absolute stupidity kills absolutely.

Just found another clock site, this one looks really impressive, the clock is assembled but needs to be finished and rebuilt, solid brass, expensive but has the possibility of becoming a family heirloom.

Al, the skeleton clock movement is a rather difficult one to locate, I know that Hermle do have them but they come complete, not as a movement only.Stupidity kills. Absolute stupidity kills absolutely.
