Greetings all. I recently aquired a fine old Waterbury clock. Being completely new to old clocks, I have
some questions about it. As the pic shows, there’s no weight on the pendulum. Just a hook.
of course, it would be easy to fabricate one but I don’t have a clue as to the weight of it.
Anybody guess a ball-park number ?
Also, the chime spring doesn’t wind. Maybe a pawl missing ? Gonna have to investigate.
The main question, though is—is there any special technique to deal with the mainspring
and chime spring when dis assembling ? I’ve managed to make the movement tick for short
periods but it needs to be cleaned part by part.
Any info would be appriciated.
