Hello, I have a Poole clock I'm repairing and one of the items, is the pendulum bob which appears to be an Ebay afterthought! Would anyone be able to let be have the diameter and thickness of the bob, of course a picture showing the adjusting screws and attachment hook would also help?

Better late than never and I hope these photos help.
The pendulum is 1-9/16 in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. It weighs 8 ounces. The face and sides are brass and the back is the inside filler metal.

My clock itself is in good shape but the battery tube is badly corroded and missing the top cover. There is a brass strip/catch attached to the back of the top that I assume gave one contact from the batteries and also could hold the cap on.
If you could, I would like several photos and a description of the cap and how it is used.
