Me cuckoo comes out too soon and I can’t stop it! (Heaven only knows what that Texan fellow is going to say…)
I’m not sure how the thing is really meant to operate, never having seen it working properly (or, indeed at all). But if I adjust the system so that the cuckoo comes out fully and goes back after it’s done its business, then as the hour or half hour approaches it sneaks forward and is coming out the half open door before the time comes. Maybe that’s usual.
Referring to the picture, as lever A is lifted by the pin on the minute wheel, so it gradually moves the lever B assembly, which in turn bears on the pin in the cuckoo post. I can see it’s necessary to adjust the vertical part of lever B to delay it acting on the cuckoo post as late as possible, but that still result in an early showing of the cuckoo. I would like it to burst out suddenly at the very last moment!
Any views, gentlemen?
