Yes, you can. If the clock is running well.. except that it is, for example, striking 8 times at 10 o’clock then most likely this means that the hour hand is out of position. The hour hand (Positioned at the 10) was incorrectly moved at some point. To correct the problem you will move the hour hand backwards to point at the 8 (yes, you can move the hand backwards.. or forwards). Then you will set the correct time using the minute hand.

Yes you can. The time is adjusted by turning the regulating nut at the bottom of the pendulum. The key thing to remember is that you should never turn the nut unless you have set the clock to an accurate time piece 24 hours earlier. We “sync” the time on our grandfather clock to an accurate time keeper (like your phone). Then you will see exactly how many minutes your grandfather clock is gaining or losing in 24 hours. This will tell us how many times we will turn the nut.

One complete 360 degree turn of the nut will adjust the time 30 seconds in 24 hours. So, Two complete turns will adjust the time 1 minute in 24 hours.

Turning the the nut to the right, raises the bob of the pendulum, making it shorter, which makes the clock run faster (Righty Tight-ee). Turning the nut to the left, lowers the bob of the pendulum, making it longer, which makes the clock run slower (Lefty Loose-ee) Continue until the clock is keeping time.

Yes we buy clocks, but we say no more often than we say yes. We have a large stock of clocks for sale, and so while we are always looking to fill our stock, we are also deliberate about what clocks we purchase.

The best way to begin the process is to email pictures of the clock along with your asking price, name and contact information to [email protected]
