How to Find The Correct Verge for your Clock Movement
Are you trying to match up your escape wheel with the correct verge? I know at times we will get a movement and it is missing the verge/crutch or it is damaged. It can be a very time consuming task trying to get the correct angles. Years ago I purchased an old clockmakers estate and in it had the diagram in the link below. The company that originally produced the diagram went out of business in the mid 1980's. It has saved me countless hours and I wanted to share this with everyone. All you have to do is print off the picture, find your clock maker and set your verge over the appropriate picture. Then its just a matter of bending your verge you make it look like the one in the picture.
