What's Wrong with my Colonial Mfg Co.(model 1698)?
Full Body Colonial Mfg Co.(model 1698)
I’m in love with this grandfather clock.
But the only clue I found about it is a paper label by the door, inside, that says: Colonial Mfg. Co, Zeeland Mi. Model: 1698, Movement: 44, Dial: DC.
On the back, inside in the machine says: Germany, Janch PL 96cm.
I re-set the time (it chimes every 1/4 and every 1hr.)
I did reposition the pendulum and the weights, but it does not work on its own.
Do I need to wind it up? I am not sure that a small crank on the face of the clock, by the moon, is for this purpose either.
