A Clock Movement Stand by Steven Tyrer

Instagram has a lot of active clock makers and repairers. Recently I noticed an interesting movement holder being used by one of the American Horologist that I follow, the holder is so versatile that it will hold a clock movement from a French pendule de Paris to a Long Case movement. Cost in the USA is around $300 and when adding shipping and tax I felt it was much too expensive so I made one.

The finger clamps have a rubber cover to protect the movement plates from damage. The clamping screw is bearing onto a steel insert.

The cross arm angle is easily adjustable for setting the movement level
