      Hi everyone.

      I am a total newbie and looking forward to this wonderful world of horology.  I have always loved clocks and now I have had to retire and got lots of time I thought I would take up this as a new pastime and hobby. Now for a little question if anyone can help. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to set up the chime on a Smith’s Enfield westminster chime clock? This is my first clock repair the time and strike are working fine now but the chime does not want to stop until it has rung all 4 quarters.  Many thanks for reading this.

      Kind regards

        Hi Anthony

        I mainly do torsion clocks but I have done a few Westminster chime clocks, it sounds to me that the chime stop is not seating properly the locking wheel is probably very slightly out the leaver should be in the middle of indent to allow the leaver to drop into the stop.

        I have probably used the wrong names but as I say I don’t usually work on them but as nobody else has replied hope it helps.
