Help!! Colonial MFG Model 1716 Pendulum Stops
(San Diego CA)
I just acquired a Colonial MFG model 1716 movement 132 dial DC.
The pendulum only swings for a few minutes before it stops.
The weights are pulled all the way up but don't seem to be moving down, even when the pendulum swing is aided.
Looking for some things to try, maybe some pointers on oiling the mechanisms. This clock was acquired at a estate sale, unclear how long it has been sitting.
In good shape, the clock mechanisms appears clean and untarnished.
