The angle in which this verge engages the escape wheel looks extreme to me. However, the clock appears to run this way. And since the rear bridge for the verge/pivot is not adjustable, but the front pivot/bushing is adjustable, should I assume this clock just runs this way and leave it alone? I so much want to make the verge arbor more perpendicular to the escape wheel, but if it isn't broken, then why "fix" it?? I'm thinking someone made the mistake of moving the adjustable pallets and this is what they had to do to it to make it run. But surely this is an unacceptable set up. Yes/no?
