    As can be seen in this low res videoclip,my clock has a very short pendulum. But my Daughter has a Bulova Cranbrook wall clock with a pendulum several times longer, but still that same excessive speed

    That would be worth a try for sure. Im thinking that the permanent magnet in the crutch & the electromagnet in the pendulum mechanism housing repel each other so im hoping that a magnet below the bob would attract the bob as it swings by & resist and slow down the pendulum. Yet it seems im the...

But about a third of the magnet broke off, so I tried using just the 2/3 piece and it didnt slow the pendulum speed down noticably, it only lessened its arc of travel. Then i...

Im wondering if all the ferrous metal I added causes a greater magnetic attraction of the permanent magnet...

I had thought it was a design flaw, bugs in the LED type lights. But since car alternators put out 14 volts, it may be that these lamps...

    I think it's very common for the quartz movements with the fake pendulums to swing the small pendulums like in my mini schoolhouse clock at about twice the normal speed. I sure wish they were better engineered to not do that, it gets on my nerves. I have a fantasy that if a resistor or a...
