    I often see the word Fusee in ads and sales of clocks. Can anyone tell me what fusee means when describing a clock.

    Thanks

    Interesting question…

    Google gave me the Wikipedia (although you can not trust it sometimes) definition which in this case is correct:

    “Used in antique spring-powered mechanical watches and clocks, a fusee is a cone-shaped pulley with a helical groove around it, wound with a cord or chain which is attached to the mainspring barrel.”

    I have also seen a modern clock that is Fusee…
