I agree with Paul. Ed you need to check the escape wheel for bent teeth. I would also check the verge and escape wheel pivots. If you see any movement of the pivots in the holes they probably need bushed. If they are ok I would look elsewhere down the train. Make sure you don’t have any bent teeth on any of the wheels and make sure wheels are all straight. Something in your time train is robbing it of power. It is possible that the spring mechanism on your verge may be weak and need tightened. I have seen that happen. Any little movement of the verge when it engages the escape wheel when it slows down to normal run can put it out of beat and stop the clock. Good luck and let us know what you run into.
