Quintus runs too fast
  • Hello Woodentimers

    I have build the Qunitus. The clock runs very fast .wat happens?
  • Maybe its skipping a tooth which can be fixed by adjusting cam.
  • George you took the words right out of my mouth.
    The catch should only advance the escapement wheel one tooth at a time, if it skips over 2 teeth then the clock will run twice as fast, this can be adjusted by using the cam (14A) on the pendulum.
    The process is explained on page 37 of the instructions.
