Septimus Pendulum weights
  • For about 3 weeks I have been playing with the position of the pendulum bob in order to get the clock ticking at the correct speed. However all attempts have failed and it loses about 5 minutes every hour. Could it be that I removed too much material when I bevelled the corners of the bob meaning it is not the correct weight and this is why it isnt keeping time?
  • As mentioned in the instructions a compound pendulum can be sped up by moving the bottom bob lower or if it is already at its limit by increasing its weight or moving the upper bob closer to the fulcrum or decreasing its weight.
