    I just acquired this Hoadley WW tall case from an auction. Fortunately the movement is in good shape. The clock is a little out of beat. I have put my Pillar and Scrolls WW in beat but not sure how to do it with this movement. I am able to shim it and get it in beat but I would like to avoid shimming and make the adjustment. Any tips or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Luke

    Simply bend the crutch wire in the desired direction to achieve in-beat-itude. One finger near the midpoint of the crutch, a finger of the other hand at the bottom near the loop, push. Repeat until even beating is achieved. .
