I have been working on a Gilbert tambour mantle clock time and strike I took in trade for some much needed dental work. This has been the clock from you know where. It has not run for three decades, everything was either bent, broken or just generally mucked up from being neglected all of this time. after much coaxing and plenty of colorful metaphors it is back in running order. now this cotton picker gains and hour and a half or so each day, (perhaps trying to catch up for lost time). even after turning the gadget that is suppose to slow it down as far as allowable it still runs fast. there is no room to drop the bob any farther without it hitting either the bottom of the case or the point where the hammers pivot just above the chime rods. I know someone is going to say send pictures, but the camera used for this purpose is MIA. any suggestions would be helpful.
