I have just bought a New Haven Mission Clock. The pendulum is missing so I was wondering if any of you lovely people would happen to have one and be able to tell me the size and weight of the pendulum?
It is exactly like this one –
Thanks in advance,

Hey Paul, I wish I could help you. I do have a few of them hanging around but all brass shafts. I don’t know how you and eBay get along but that’s my go to 1st. I wish you the best and let us know how you made out. Ed.March 12, 2014 at 1:36 pm #56289bernie weishaplParticipant
Paul I have this one. The pendulum on it is 29 1/2″ long and it weighs 20.5 oz. Don’t know if that will help. I bought this one and I believe it is a New Haven. I haven’t had a chance as you can see by the dust yet but hopefully soon.

Thanks for the reply Ed
They are a bit scarce this side of the pond and postage from the other side is excessive. If I dont get an answer I will go the long winded route and follow a similar procedure that bob shows in his video. As it is one of my own clocks there is no rushMarch 12, 2014 at 1:40 pm #56291
that looks perfect I would guess by the hands on your clock it is a New Haven and the position of the winding arbor holes look good too!
This will give me a good head start so thank you very much for taking the time to post the pics and reply

Your welcome Paul. Hope it helps.March 12, 2014 at 2:54 pm #56293willofiamModerator
Paul, If you look in Decarles book on clock repair he gives formulas on how to figure out the pendulum length…it is in the section on formulating gear sizes, ratios ect.., I have been reading this lately and is really a good thing to learn even for general repairs as you are experiencing now(may take me awhile to figure it out though 🙄 ) but you could get it in a snap…..

you should know by now I dont like to do anything the easy way
If Bernie hadn’t come up with the goods I would just be fixing on a stick with a stone taped to the end
