Lots of scrubbing; polishing pivots; new cables; repair to counting rack; it does look a bit better. I need a new crutch, a suspension bridge and a flywheel. It is coming along.
I found this treasure at the Ottawa Antique market on Bank Street. It is in a poor shape; the case must have been nice years ago and the movement is the dirtiest I have seen in my life; it is also missing the fly wheel and part of the suspension. The face is brass andin good condition, although it’s missing the 4 posts to attach it to the plate. It reads Robt Clidsdale, EDINBURGH. This name does not appear in Britten’s list of old clock and watch makers. I am in the process of restoring it and I will post pictures of my progress as time goes by.
