Question
It was asked in 2008 about the tubes with a disc in each end with one small hole in them.  How is the suspension cord installed?

Thanks

Answer
factory had it's method but easiest is to thread the cord down the hole in the end till it comes out the bottom and then tie a big knot and pull it back up to the end.  Supposedly the little cap with the hole in the end of the tube can be tapped on one edge inside to get the cap sideways on edge and then pull out with pliers.

I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him.
