Hi there,

I recently relocated to the USA with a Notarisklok from the Netherlands. The secondary (small) chains and weights are not currently set up. Is there any diagrams/videos of how these need to be set up?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated

Could we see photos of the clock?

Hi there,

Thank you for your rapid response! Am currently out of town but will post as soon as I return in a couple of days. What specific pictures would assist? I can have the clock and the secondary weigths and chain (currently unattached). Is there anything else that would be helpful?

Pics of the clock, then the movement front and back if possible. Get the best pics you can.

Here are some initial pictures. The final one is of the secondary chains/weights that I am trying to figure out how to add.
When you look at your third picture you will see a small, empty sprocket wheel (chain wheel) in the right upper region of the movement. That's where the chain with the small weights will go. It is for the alarm function of the clock. I would think that originally this wasn't a chain but a rope, because there is a small counter weight which wouldn't be needed for a chain. The chain is currently in two pieces that will need to be connected.

Thanks so much for this info! Will definitely look at getting the chain connected and added to the chain wheel. Really appreciate the help!

The best way to put the chain back together is to twist one link open, rather than trying to pry it open. Twisting is easier to put back, too ;)
