Hello, guys. disciple _dan here.
I need a little help with a replacement clock I’m working with. It’s a Hermle 451-033 SK. I’m replacing a 451-033H.
Everything looks fine. The clock fits in all of its measurements. The SK has a second-hand arbor but that’s not the problem.
When the time weight falls and gets to the pendulum it drags on the weight and stops the clock.
I measured the suspension arm on both old and new and found that the SK was 5 mm shorter than the H. I installed the old one and it helped but the weight is still uncomfortably close to the pendulum. About 2 mm is all.
Anybody ever had a similar problem?
I’m lost for what to do. Should I bend the leader or the pendulum rod?
It’s a brand new movement.
Thanks for any help. DannyMarch 17, 2018 at 7:33 am #64788clockmanbillParticipant
Hi! I’m Bill. Where did you get the new movement? I’m sure they have run into this before and may tell you what you can do. I wouldn’t bend anything without asking them first. Just my opinion.March 18, 2018 at 12:03 pm #64789disciple_danParticipant
Thanks for the reply.
I did call the supplier and he had never heard of this problem before. He’s the one that suggested using the suspension arm from the original movement.
I went NAWCC and found a post on a similar problem. The solution there was to drill a new hole closer to the end of the arm.
That’s what I did and it did the trick.
So, all is well and the clock is doing well. Ready to go back to the owner.
Thanks again for your comments. I really appreciate it.
Have a great week, Danny
