Hang a Clock Pendulum

Reply Wed 9 Jan, 2013 04:13 am
Hello Friends,

Pendulums regulate the speed of a clock mechanism to provide accurate timekeeping. When a pendulum clock is moved or a new clock purchased, it is necessary to hang the pendulum once its location has been chosen. Shelf clocks have a small pendulum weight with a short looped rod. Wall clock pendulums rods are longer with a large "bob" attached for weight, and long case floor clocks have a very long pendulum rod with a large bob. Hanging a pendulum is a task that requires no special skills other than a gentle touch.

Thanks a lot!

@Carlow Mapthew,
Hello all,

Pendulum clocks were first made in 1656 by Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens. Hundreds of years later, we are still keeping time with them. The different styles of pendulum clocks include the grandfather clock, wall clock, mantel clock and anniversary clock. Unlike the antique pendulum clocks that needed to be wound every day, you have a choice of electric, battery powered or the old-fashioned pendulum clock that you wind up every day or every week. There is a pendulum clock to suit any lifestyle. Proper handling and care will ensure that you'll have the clock in your family for many years to come.

Thanks a lot
Andy Thomas
