    Tinker and dickstorer,

    You both sent me to the Internet to figure out your ages, and I learned a little in the process. Thanks!!!

    So I originally lost close to 5 minutes and after my initial adjustment, last night when I got home I lost about 2 minutes. Last night I made another and we'll see what I get later on tonight

    Most clocks have a rating nut of about .01 pitch
    for the thread.
    With your pendulum length, you get about 1 minute
    change for every 1.5 turns, per 24 hours.
