I've made two videos of about two minutes each of my Schatz cuckoo striking, the first one viewed from the rear with the back cover off and the second one shot from the front. The hammer operates first, then the short bellows lifter which operates the high note bellows on the right (coo) and also has the wire that tips up the back of the bird, and then the long bellows lifter which operates the low note bellows on the left (koo). At first the high note bellows lifter would hang up, I guess because it was being asked to lift too much too far, so I bent that one down a little to put more slack in it and limit the amount of travel and now it seems to be more or less working. Two questions: 1) In general, how does it look and sound to you and do you have any suggestions on how I could adjust it better; and 2) ideally the door would open a little further and the bird would come out a little further - should I maybe bend the counterweight arms down a little on both the bird lever and door lever? Thanks much for any help. Video shot from the back: You can hear the rack drop at about 1:09 and the strike occurs less than a minute later. Video shot from the front: The back cover is installed in this one so you can hear the gong.
