    No experience with these, so...it is striking on the hour, but on the 1/2 hr it turns over as if it is going to strike but doesn't. So, question is, do they strike on the 1/2 hr and if so, any suggestions on why it isn't?

    Have you watched the mechanism? Does it strike the half hours on a separate gong or bell? Do you have any photos of the hammers gong/bell?

    An English bracket clock usually would not strike the 1/2 hours, but there are always exceptions, and clocks that have been modified to add a passing strike
