I am going to have to make a replacement wood pendulum for a weight driven Vienna regulator probably from the 1920's. Does anyone know what the best wood to use for this replacement would be? Cherry wood maybe? I have the woodworking tools to carve it but I have never made one before. It measures 25 1/2". That is the wood itself but the hook and rating assembly not included in that measurement. How do you figure out the weight with the bob and does that need to be considered when choosing the wood?
