    I built a cherry mantle clock 20 years ago in highschool shop intending to put a mechanical movement in it. AA quartz movement won.
    I finally got around to getting an old sessions bim bam movement for it recently and now realize its a tight fit.
    If I shorten the hammer rods at least a half inch will it create any problems for me getting it to chime corectly?

    Hi, termin8ted, welcome to the message board. Shortening the hammer rods shouldn't have much effect on the sound. But shortening the chime rods would change the sound. Post some pictures of what you are up against for better advice.
