    Recently acquired a lovely Lauffer mantel clock--the art deco style with a green dial and green front inserts. The beat is a bit off and I'm just not sure how to adjust it. Any help is appreciated.

    Photos of the pallet arbor and crutch area will be necessary. Most, but certainly not all, German clocks have a rigid crutch with a fairly tight clutch, to allow for beat adjustment. Willie X

    It the crutch is not a wire, chances are that it is friction fit a the anchor. Push the crutch toward the long side of the beat. When it hits what feels like the end point, push it just a little more and you should feel it give and move a little. It might take a couple of nudges to get right.
