Lefty loosey righty tighty as far as I know. It will come off.perhaps a previous owner put some sort of sealant on the threads.or to might be corroded. "STAINLESS " steel is still steel. It will corrode.
Can anyone please help me figure out how to fix the pendulum in this old Welch wall clock? There seems to be a suspension spring mount missing and there is no spring, crutch etc. Just the pendulum rod with a slot in it and a hook on the top. From pics on line I can see that there should be some sort of brass rod crutch assembly from the slot but I have no idea how this attaches or interacts with the pinion what the hook on the pendulum attaches to and how/if a suspension spring should come into play. Any ideas anyone?
