    Hi,, just wondering what the numbers stamped on clock movement plates are for?? I have come across and old
    Gilbert parlor clock, and it has the numbers 5 1/2 stamped on the front of the plate??? I have always wanted to
    find out exactly what they stand for? Pendulum length? etc…not sure?? Help…

    Those numbers would be pendulum length.
