When I took the verge out the wheel ran like a race horse. Now I am not 100% sure which one is the escape when. If you can tell me which one I can look.Cuckoo clock verges seldom if ever need adjusting, and they seem to last forever. But their pivot holes may wear, along with the pivot holes in the remainder of the time train. See if you can sneak the escape wheel out of there and see if the movement runs freely.
Did you change the verge verge adjustment? The verge adjustment could not change itself so if the clock was running but not it will not run now I doubt that the verge is the problem. Perhaps the most common reason for a clock that isn't broken to not run is being "out of beat". With the movement setup with the weights and pendulum attached, try tilting the movement slightly to one side or the other and see if it ticks more evenly and keeps running. If the pendulum swing is weak (and you are using the correct weights) The problem is likely wear as Dick has already mentioned and/or the movement needs to be disassembled and cleaned.So I had this movement going then it just stopped. I think the verge is not set correctly anymore on the wheel. I am sort of stuck at figuring this out.
I get the feeling that you are into this project well beyond your capabilities.When I took the verge out the wheel ran like a race horse. Now I am not 100% sure which one is the escape when. If you can tell me which one I can look.
I would describe that movement as a Black Forest, cuckoo movement with a count wheel strike system. It does not seem to have maker’s marks on the movement and that is not unusual. The cuckoo clock industry has been a cottage industry, meaning that many/most of those clocks were made and assembled in people’s homes. Some of the components were purchased, some made by the assemblers. It is tough to trace the origins of cuckoo clocks.Does anyone know what the name or type of movement this is?
