• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

Tall case strike problem.

If you want to run the clock the correct way to silence an 8 day is to stop the rack falling. You can wire it up in the stopped position so that when released it won't fall.

The movement is out and waiting for GP. Won’t be running for a while.

Got the GP blank. Is this placement correct? Need to file yet. Thanks

Yes, that's correct position for it
Does the beak look like it’s in the wrong direction, not correct orientation?
It turns ant-clockwise and that would have it catching the rack on the curved side. Hope I’m being clear. Thanks a lot

Thanks to everyone for all the advice and help. Got the GP filed and it’s gotten rid of my problems. Lots of work filing for sure.

Only one thing to fix. It won’t strike on twelve. May have to adjust the snail or Rack. Everything else is good. Next I’ll re silver the dial.

What does actually happen when you attempt to strike twelve? Is the rack tail falling on the 12 step on the snail?
