I have cobbled together a skeleton clock using bits of other clocks. It all works well except it runs too fast despite the pendulum and bob at its maximum length. Also the pallets are at their maximum penetration into the escapement. Any further penetration and clock will not run. My question: Is the weight of the bob a factor and in which case can adding or reducing the weight affect the timing?
