  11. Hi watchweasol part of the problem is when I move the pendulum the pallet doesn't move the escape wheel to give the tick and tock
  12. Hi oldhippy hope you can see the photos ok
  13. I have been having problems with setting the beat of a mantle clock when i move the pendulum the pallets does not move the escapement one tooth at a time no matter how much i adjust the pallets left right up down so i cant get it to tick tock. I did have it ticking for over a hour and striking ok then decided to put it back into its case and that was a performance i couldn't seem to get the brackets in the right position for the movement to be level i did final do it then hey presto it wouldn't tick and have struggled the last couple of days with it,any advice would be grateful
  14. thanks appreciate all your views i have learnt a lot, take care
