    Only run the clocks that have low level of ticking sound such as french mantels and 400 day clocks. Any that is giving high volume of tick-tock, just running for a few hours in a week.. Well just because all the clocks in my living room..

    I usually run up to a dozen at a time. A couple of them I run all the time and we count on them and they run the household. The others I alternate as the mood suits me. I try to never leave a clock just sitting with the springs under tension.

    I keep about 10 out of 50 running. Nothing runs in the bedroom, freaks out the wife. The only clocks I buy are what I consider to be beautiful pieces of furniture anyway, so just their presence add beauty to any room they are in.

    You can let them run down close to the end, and then just stop the Pendulum.

    That's it !

    We currently have 6 in our bedroom, all of which tick and strike the hour and 4 of them also strike the half hour. After a while you don't even notice them.

    It's amazing what you can get used to. My wife has even gotten used to me - probably harder than getting used to the clocks...
