Ridgeway Adjustment

by Floyd Little
(Seattle, Wa)

My Ridgeway runs too fast, so I have been gradually lowering the pendulum weight using the knurled knob (nut)

It has slowed down but still runs to fast, the problem is, I have run out of adjustment.

Is there a separate way to make adjustments?

I guess no one has ever had this problem.
So, my answer and it seems to be working, is to put one or two magnets on the back of the pendulum.
With the added weight it has slowed down and is almost on time
