I just finished a typical 1920ish German wall clock movement. All disassembly, cleaning, assembly, adjustment , etc went as planned. The movement was installed in the clock and all was adjusted. The mainsprings were wound and off it went tic toc-ing away. All was fine and dandy until about 6 hours later. It stopped. The time barrel could be spun freely. What? I noticed about 2 or 3 trundles broken off the 2nd wheel. Has this ever happened to anyone out there? Perhaps one trundle gave way and the momentum took out another one or two.
