Rated 5 out of
I bought this movement some time ago. I built my clock base on the Cheyenne plans but with modifications. I wanted raised panels at the base. Instead of making my own templates I purchase a set from Sommerfelds tools part # fscltmp. I made a mistake in increasing the height of the clock thinking it was needed for the raise panels at the base.

Good quality product
I purchased this movement about two weeks ago. Fast shipment all packed very well. I just finished building the movement setup and test stand. Attached you will find photo's of same. After four days of running all seams to be working fine. You will need to make some hammer strike adjustments, as well as take very accurate measurements. Leveling the stand in all directions is the main key to the smooth running and accuracy of the movement. I hope to get many years of enjoyment from this clock. Now to the case work.

I bought this kit in Nov of 2015 and when I put it together and made all the adjustments as needed, the instructions made it really easy to do. The only problem I have with it is the chimes ring about 1 minute early than they should. I am sure if I called tech support they would tell me how to adjust that too, That was the only adjustment I did not see in the instructions, but overall, it is a great kit for the money.

The weights are described as shells. Do you sell the weights needed for each weight shell (i.e. [L] 7.7 lbs, [C] 9.9 lbs and [R] 9.9 lbs for the KSU movement) or are they included with this package?
Hi TheTurboFan, the weights and weight shells are included with your purchase of the KSU mechanical movement.

2. How far is it from the bottom of the movement to the tip of the pendulum?

Will this movement and pendulum work in a 14 1/2" inside measurement cabinet ?
Hi Jeff, that only leaves 1/4" of room on each side of the pendulum. It will be close! We usually recommend 1/2" of space on each side when it swings. We can’t promise it will work but you can try it. We can walk you through alternative options if you'd like! Please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 and ask for our Mechanical Technician.
