    Thanks for the tip William, but I have tried it both with oil on the fly arbor and dry, also polished all the pinions as well as I could, but it just doesn’t sound right to me. I use the half hour hammer only. The clock is down at the moment, I’ve ordered a verge, actually two, (OK, I don’t have a lot of confidence yet!) and plan to learn the escapement. The clock runs OK but the verge wiggles on the arbor. I Have the escapement book that everyone recommends ordered from Merrit, hope it helps. I call this clock Frankenclock cause I am always changing parts on it. I need to practice on something. I thought if I was going to be afraid of verges I would at least give myself a reason.
