I believe I heard or read somewhere that verge escapement clocks were sometimes fitted with gut pallets to make them quieter. Is this true, and if so how were they made? I quite like the idea of keeping my quarter repeating bracket clock next to my bed when (if?) it is eventually finished. With a soft tick, the strike set to silent, only repeating the quarter on demand with the pull of the string and the option of setting the alarm, it would be perfect. I have to convert it back to verge from anchor, so I could make two sets of pallets.
