    Well,

    I guess it's official. I have a face that stops a clock. I put the movement back in the cuckoo I was working on, and put it on a rigged up test stand. It was ticking happily away. I went away for a few hours, and when I returned, it was still doing it's thing. While I was there, sitting in my chair, I could hear it behind me. I turned around for another look, then it suddenly stopped! I'll have to have a closer look and see what the deal is, but it was an odd experience.

    Happens to me all the time. That's when the detective work starts.

    An intermittent fault like that is called many things, most of which cannot be used on this Forum

    It is why you put it on the test stand. To see if it would stop.
