    On this Sligh 2061-853 sk model I need to adjust the minute hand to correspond with the chimes. I was sure that I did not have a bushing in the hand. After doing a bit of reading of the archives, I pulled the hand and sure enough it does have a bushing so now I can make that adjustment! My question, would this setscrew have allowed me to make this change as well?

    Conover's Chime Clock Repair book didn't mention it. Thanks...

    It seems so. I've never seen that arrangement before.

    Wow never seen this arrangement before. If the hand only needed to be moved a half a minute it would be hard to locate that small of a move. The set screw would want to follow the indent made the first time. It would be easier to just move the bushing in the hand.

    I think that screw is for fine adjustment of the night shut off feature, or possibly a calander drive. Willie X

    That makes sense RA, I will move the hand bushing to keep it simple. Willie, some good possibilities.

    Correct. It is for the ANSO and has nothing to the minute hand adjustment

    I think that is a moon gear which also drives the auto night silence on this Hermle movement. (But this would only be compatible with the later moon dials). Nothing to do with alignment of minute hand.
