I have a european pine tree in my front yard. It makes nice
looking cones that could be used to mold some nice weights from.
The one famous issue with these is the missing washers on the

Some of the newer ones shouldn't need them so make sure that...
If your time measurement is accurate, the pendulum would need to be

I find that unlikely. I assume your measurement is from the...
