Yain't gonna beleive this; Well maybe a few will. I fixed this clock in my sleep. No I cannot say for a fact I was sleeping but I certainly wasn't coherent as one would normally wanna be to fix a clock. It's one of them shelf sitter BUCO wags with a verge escapement and tensator spring. I guess I've had it for six months or more. I gave it the royal treatment as I would any other but on completion found it wouldn't sustain motion. It would stop mysteriously for no apparent reason. I forgot how often I dismantled and reassembled it after making adjustments that did seem to improve it but not 100%. Finally I started marking pinion leaves. I was certain of a meshing problem but the problem continued to elude me. Set aside for over a month as I thought about it, still couldn't muster motivation to return.
