Builder Joe has a question about Graham escapements:
I have another question regarding my pendulum slowly stopping. In your FAQ (on our website):
"Now when you get to the escape wheel, put the wheel in with the pallet arbor. When the pallets are in proper position, gently restrain the pallets with your finger on the arbor. Now turn the escape wheel. It should first push one of the pallets out of the way, and this will cause the other pallet to come into contact with another escape wheel tooth. Keep turning the escape wheel and the pallets should gently rock back and forth."
Should the pendulum be on it? I have tried without the pendulum, but I can’t get the pallets to keep rocking.
Thanks again, Joe
