1790 Longcase clock

Recommended Posts

Please find a couple of short vids and a pic of a long case clock(without it's hood)

made in approx 1790. Found the pendulum rubbing on the back of the case + a touch out of beat. Both adjustments were done by a manipulating the crutch a tiny amount.

It is solid to the wall so no movement was possible. He suspects his cleaner had got a bit over zealous opened the door and the cleaning cloth got tangled. The vid was after my adjustments.The customer has been using a pro clock repairer for many years who has now retired.  Also he has a lot of clocks that need attention so plenty of work afoot when I have time.

  chimeing  Vs ticking;   it is easy to learn to live with "ticking".   chimes are another story.   some of those ships clocks chimes can be heard when you are outside mowing the lawn.  just for the lady of the house,  i let the chimes run down.   as far as feminism goes,  THAT was my X vaccuuming wilst I ate breckfast.    vin
