    Similar HAC Chime issue

    I just purchased this wall clock for my father for Father’s Day. It was a gamble as the seller didn’t even know what they had, let alone what might be wrong with it. “Won’t keep time” was all they knew. I got it home and started looking at the movement (#36 is my guess?) and found that the...
