  1. Thanks for that link Wrench. That clock agrees with the clock on my smartphone so ill use that. I have a garage full of bikes, can be difficult to get rid of , most have Campagnolo kit but i don't think i have anything too special, although it is special to me.
  2. I am trying to adjust my recently inherited 18th century longcase. I am making small adjustments to the pendulum length and the accuracy is improving but something I have noted a few times defies my comprehension. If the clock is running say 20 secs fast. I stop the pendulum for 20 secs let go, no problem. The next time the clock strikes it is 20 secs slow ie. It has lost 40 secs! How did that happen? Anyhow, over the next couple of hours the clock corrects itself and runs on time. What is happening? I have seen this 2 or 3 times. How can it lose time and then correct itself.
  3. Thankyou Boots, maybe I am expecting too much from a 250 years old clock. I have already noted the effect of gravity on the hands. Sent from my PRA-LX1 using Tapatalk
  4. I knew nothing, apart from the obvious, about clocks but have recently inherited a longcase. It didn't work after I moved it to my house, apart from a continuous striking of the bell. After scouring t'Internet, YouTube and observing very closely the chain, wheels, pins and levers I got the clock working but not striking. After a bit more play and fiddling it started to strike although I'm not sure how! Can I ask what you guys use for a time datum? I sometimes listen to radio 4,so compare the hourly pips with the striking of my clock. It seems a bit variable which I hope, is the pips. What do y
