Was wandering if there was a couple of things I could try without having to go it to it.
That sounds very odd. There must be some way of accessing the movement. Again, without photos, we are just guessing.It does not have a removable back panel or a hood.
Not quite sure what you mean by getting the ' time weight too tight'. It is possible you wound it so far up that it is jammed against the seatboard. Again you need to look and post some pics if you are not sure what you are seeing.On winding it felt like maybe i got the time weight too tight.
So if I understand correctly, the clock was actually running normally when you wound it. In other words, you did not wind it because it had run down or stopped. Then imediately after winding, (not 30 minutes, or an hour or two later) the clock stopped running.Clock had just been re-wound to the top (all 3 weights-cable driven) with a crank type key
and yes the clock has been running,striking,chiming right where it sets now for several months. Was wandering if there was a couple of things I could try without having to go it to it. It does not have a removable back panel or a hood. On winding it felt like maybe i got the time weight too tight,although the pulley is visable as is the top of the weight and not jammed against anything,
Thanks for your replies.
While I do no consider myself an expert, you have dozens of other eyes and some of the most qualified clockmakers anywhere in the world right here, but if you are unwilling to share pictures and respond to detailed questions they can’t help. I feel sure that any qualified clock repair person will quickly identify the problem when he or she sees your clock..Calling in reinforcements. TBD
Going to get another pair of eyes and hands involved.
Outcome will be a while.
