    Ansonia pendulum wobbles. Why?

    try tapping a tapered pin slighty in the back of slot to force slot open... I'm thinking there is a bur on the inside of slot causing ur twist... clean up slot give slot a light squeez remove pin put suppension back on lightly crimp eyeball everything for a slight twist thats often the cause...

    How would you fix a broken hook on a lead banjo clock weight?

    try a wood cutting paddle bit used to bore holes in wood ...get small size and drill one end to other.... a spike will work also cut head off hammer other end into spade shape to desired width
