    Update on my Waterbury mantle clock:
    It’s been running for 7 days without a wind. The lock I used as a bob needs more weight or to be suspended
    a bit longer. Tried wrapping it with lead/tin solder but that’s a sloppy intolerable fix.
    Just benchwork. It’s an 8 day movement so I think it’s doing SO fine !!
    It “dings” on every hour which sounds exactly like the little bell at thee customer service counter that you smack.
    Half the battle. Gotta get the gong working. Sounds do royal for such a small clock.
