Question
clock
clock  
Hi there I have just received my deceased pops clock and I was wondering if you might be able too tell me what make it was and possibly the year it was made. Also it is out of sync with the chime for the hours as it just went 2 but the bell went 11 times I'm very pleased with my clock but would dearly like it to work correctly. The only thing I remember pop saying about it is he winds it up every Monday and Friday
If you could help or steer me in the right direction I would appreciate it

Answer

to sync strike move minute hand clockwise to 3 minutes before the hour and then backwards to 20 minutes of the hour--each time you do this it will advance the strike one more time

Comment - On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mr. Saunders a 15 on each category. His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. 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. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box.
