Wire Brakes & Brass Rods
This is the most common way of starting/stopping a small mechanism. A thin piece of wire with a spring attached to give tension that when levered one way it hits the butterfly wheel (speed governor) of the movement to stop it and when levered the other way releases the butterfly wheel to start it playing. This is what we use in our musical jewellery boxes.

*These are only suitable for 18, 22 & 36 note size movements.

The levered end can connect vertically to the Brass Rod if required. The rod has a hole drilled in the end, so the wire brake fits into this and can slide up and down in the side of a box against the wires spring tension, so it can pop up to release upon lifting the lid. The wire brake can be bent in many different ways to suit a variety of applications.
