Probably one of the best mantle clock Ive seen…Grasshopper Escapement!

I used to be known as out on a grandfather clock restore and was requested to cite on a service for this one off grasshopper escapement clock.

Usually I might do an extended submit however this time I’ve a video that basically says all of it.

Servicing a clock like this isn’t as difficult as you would possibly assume. All t he elements are uncovered and after about 5 minutes (most of which was with my mouth open in awe) I used to be in a position to see the place the adjustment factors had been and perceive the disassembly and meeting operation order.

These of you who know such issues could have seen the fusee drive and surmised that the pendulum might be iridium. Usually I’m not actually one for iridium pendulums – it appears a step too far, nonetheless, if the remainder of the clock is that this finely put collectively then iridium is form of.. anticipated.
