Open the front door and hang the pendulum on the hook (on many clocks the hook is behind the dial), give the pendulum a swing, and the clock will start ticking.Choose the proper size wood screw (typically a #8, 10 or 12) to fit the hanger at the top back of the clock, and long enough to go securely through the wall into a stud.Turn the key with a smooth motion, stopping when the spring is tight (approximately 7 turns after one week of running).Never let the key snap back in your hand, always release it gently after each half turn.
Unfortunately, Empire Clock is out of business, and I have only a few of these springs left in stock.
This Ansonia mantel clock movement was sent to me for repair.
After examining it, I thought it might be too far gone to be worth repairing.
The movement has the patent date of June 18, 1882 and says 4 1/2 on the right rear movement leg.
The pendulum is not original to the clock, but it is an old Ansonia pendulum of the correct style that is probably about an inch longer than the original.
