In this time period it's most probable that he had learned his clockmaking skills. In 1797 he had enlisted with the Minute Men and was given the Commisson of Major in 1799.

He had been a Hand Card Maker (carding wool) silversmith,goldsmith and  had many other interest. All his clock movements are typical of the New Hampshire makers which have arched cut outs in the front and back plates of the movements.It may have been that these clock makers were conserving on the brass for there clock movements....
