Ok guys, its been awhile since I have been on here but I ran into an issue with a carriage clock. I’m hoping someone can help me with it.
I have a J.E. Calowell made in France Carriage Clock and the Escape wheel has a broken pivot. I was hoping someone on here could either direct me to were I can get another one or to someone who could repair the one I have, I have already looked on Ebay and tried Timesavers. Thanks for any help
the Escape wheel is 15 tooth, about 7.1mm or .280 in dia and about 12mm long with the broken pivot missing
below are some pics

I don’t think you will have much luck finding a replacement but might get lucky.
Bob T used to be the go to guy for me for pivoting
and staff making but that was back in the late 80s and 90s.
I think he stopped taking in outside work long ago but you might give a shoutout just to see.
Another person who has a good reputation for doing very good work is Matt Henning at
Nice clock by the way!
Hope this helps,

Thank you Sir, I will give those a try.. and yes it is a nice clock.. and I haven’t even started cleaning it. Thanks againJanuary 31, 2021 at 11:41 pm #65266
quick question on part identification.. can you tell me the name of the wheel that connects to the escapement pinion? its a unique wheel as it connects at a 180 from the pinion..its the wheel the platform escarpment connects directly too
when I was talking to the fellow thats going to help me with the escape wheel pivot he was asking about “the count of the train”, I assumed he was talking about the tooth count on that wheel. the concern was that I had the right escape wheel. the one I have has 8 leaves on the pinion and he said we could be sure it was the right escape wheel by the count of the train.February 1, 2021 at 9:16 pm #65267Anonymous

I think you’re talking about the contrate wheel.
Good luck with pivoting job.
