Clocks, Watches/german cuckoo clock


someone has moved the pendulum how do i get the time right again. It is loosing at the moment aboubt ten minutes a day.

Sometimes you can look at the back of the pendulum stick and see an indent where the pendulum leaf used to be. The leaf is attached to a metal clamp that wraps around the wood stick. After years of being in one position it crimps the wood. If you find that spot slide the leaf up into it.
In any case you will be sliding the leaf up the stick to make the clock run faster.
