    Default Re: German Grandfather Clock (By: Willie X)

    Thank you so much for all the help. I have removed the pendulum and the suspension spring as I had to get exact measurements of the latter, and have followed your advice and removed the pendulum. Unfortunately, I could not get the exact one at either Timesavers or Perrins. However, I was able to order it from Cousins Material House Ltd. in the UK. A little more expensive there due to shipping costs but will be around $20CA.

    PS I have a couple of other clocks that I am interested in obtaining info on. One is my grandfathers pocket watch which I posted in the Pocket Watch section and the other an old mantle clock which I have yet to post.

    So greatful to you all.

    The old boy is back home in his case and running well with the new suspension spring from Cousins Ltd. in the UK. Thanks to all who aided me in this refurb'.

    Default 1 suspension ribbon is broken.

    I would tie twine to the pendulum shaft hook so that if the other ribbon breaks, the pendulum cannot fall to the floor and become damaged.
    Cables have been attached to carillon bell clappers so they cannot fall. I think this was done at the Sather Tower of the University of California, Berkeley. (Maybe earthquake mitigation.)

    Oh. Already done! Nice clock!
