Nice quality clock Ed, if you listen to the clock and it goes slightly in and out of beat you will find the pallet arbor bushes need doing. If it is not going in and out of beat then you need to check the train to make sure you dont have a tight pivot somewhere, excessive wear in the pivots allows the gears to sit at slight angles, this can put extra pressure on the next gear and bind things up. Also check the escape wheel for bent teeth or even a tooth. These are the main things to check before attempting any adjustment on the escapement.
Let us know what you find.
