swing it

To keep that pendulum swinging you must balance the tick and the tock.

First, I levelled the clock left/right and front/back then I moved the pendulum to the right to find out where it "ticked".

I marked that exact spot with a piece of tape on the back of the case. Then I moved the pendulum in the other direction to see where it "tocked" and then marked that spot.

What was happening was that the little arm the pendulum went through was not timed correctly so I bent it a bit to get the tick and tock to happen equadistant in the swing.

That timed it and it is running fine now.
