Gilbert Open Escapement Mantel Clock Movement
If your serious about replacing your worn movement with a high quality rebuilt movement consider one of ours. Every pivot, lever and tooth is inspected for defects and repaired or replaced if needed providing you with a movement as close to factory new as you can find anywhere.
Our movements are simply the best rebuilt movements you will find anywhere period! We take NO shortcuts on the overhaul process and have a extensive used parts inventory should a defective part have to be replaced.
The Gilbert movement pictured was just rebuilt by us and shows where new Bergeon bronze bushings where installed, see picture with the red circles.
Prior to installing new Begeon bronze bushing all pivots where polished using a Rollimat pivot polisher, a tool specifically designed for polishing pivots of all the defects. When finished every pivot is perfectly round again and has a mirror like finish, a thing of beauty.
We then assemble and test the movement for at least one week prior to oiling the pivots with the best synthetic clock oil. We have always tested our movements without oil for at least a week so not to hide and potential binding problems.
Your newly overhauled movement will provide many years of dependable service, all you have to do is wind it up and enjoy.
See picture with red circles indicating new bronze bushings on the back and front plate
See the picture with the red circles indicating the mounting screws, notice one of the four is missing. Use one of yours for the missing one.
The small round white dial had the paper replaced with new glossy paper giving the appearance of porcelain.
I highly suggest you do not attempt to replace the small round dial, not a easy as it looks.
Strikes the hours on the hour and once for the half hour
See pictures for distances for the winding arbors and center shaft (where the hands attach) to the center shaft.
Comes as pictured with pendulum leader and pendulum bob.
