Hi all
daft question, but how do you adjust the beat by moving the crutch when it is restricted by 2 pins on either side as in photo

I would remove the pins, set the beat and then replace the pins.
Those are stop pins to prevent the pendulum from being pushed too far to either side and putting the movement out of beat.

I usually hold the pallet firmly, with fingers, while moving the crutch to the correct position. This usually takes several attempts. Willie X

Those pins are usually threaded and will screw out. But Willie's idea is what I do, and it's faster ;)
