Adjusting the Pendulum on Your Grandfather Clock
How to speed up grandfather clock or slow down your grandfather clock.
The pendulum length dictates how fast or how slow your grandfather clock will keep the proper time. If you take time to adjust it properly, the grandfather clock can keep exceptionally good time for a mechanical timekeeper.
The longer you make the pendulum, the slower the grandfather clock.
The shorter you make the pendulum, the faster the grandfather clock.
Changing the Battery In Your Clock Insert
A clock insert is found in many table clocks or desk clocks. These work well and create a design where the battery may be hidden inside the clock so there are no plastic or unsightly battery cavities directly on the back of the clock where they are in view. The back of this type of clock can look as nice as the front and be completely finished. These are made by taking the body of the soon to be clock and making a cavity about an inch deep within the face of the wood where the dial will later sit or be “inserted”. The entire front and back of the clock is finished so it looks great from any direction.
