QUESTION: attach is the balance wheel assembly. its a emperor mantel with a jauch mec the top escape gear shaft has failed.
I'm sure you know that Jauch has been out of business for a long time now. I don't know if any of the new balances will fit your clock but you can look at the ones Timesavers sells:
Another option would be to find a watchmaker (or really good clock maker) to put a new staff on the escape wheel. Watchmaker are especially good at this kind of work so I would start there.
