Emperor Clock, Chimes sound sour!
(Port Richey, Florida)
I have an Emperor Grandfathers Clock, that my Dad made from a kit back in the seventies. It was last serviced over twenty years ago.
Unfortunately there are no clock repair places within 50 miles of here.
I moved last year. After setting up the clock, it worked for quite a long time, then suddenly stopped.
I got it going again, but now the chimes sound very off.
I can't really describe it other than they sound sour.
Like there is a loud echo or more than one chime is being hit when it is chiming.
Could this be because of changes in weather ( I live in Florida ) as I notice it started as soon as the warm weather did, or do you think it is something mechanical?
