How to move and set up a pendulum clock

thumbnail

It is very important to know how to move and set up a pendulum clock in the right way. Perhaps you have a clock that runs well where it is, and you need to move it to a new location. Or you may have inherited an antique clock or bought one at auction and you need to assemble and set it going for the very first time.

This article guides you through the process (and the pitfalls to avoid!), focusing on longcase clocks. The same anchor escapement is often found on table clocks, bracket clocks, hooded clocks and some lantern clocks, and even though these are easier to set up, you will find some useful tips here.

The article walks you through:

  • Dismantling the clock
  • Transporting the clock
  • Setting up the clock case
  • Assembling the clock
