    I have a wooden plate clock, that thanks to some members here works great. The only problem is that the chain from time to time will skip over the gear teeth. The teeth seem very far apart from what Im used to seeing and im sure the LPF are wrong. Can anyone tell me how to determine the LPF that I need? Thanks!

    LPF, loop diameter and wire thickness are issues.
    It might be corrosion on the sprocket teeth causing issues.
    Try a small weight on the free end.
    You can get a rough idea with a narrow piece of paper.
    It needs to be punctured and be able to clear as it comes off.
