SOURCE: I want to know how to set the time on a tall

I have 2 GF clocks....
To set the time, first be sure the clock is wound (weights are in the up position). Next, be sure that the pendulum is operating.... The "click, click" sound should be spaced about evenly. If not, then change the height adjustment of the feet to make the clock level...then the click will even out. Next, using only your finger, gently move the minute hand in a CLOCKWISE direction until you have set the time. You MAY wish to allow the chimes to sound at each quarter or half hour mark as you rotate the minute hand - but it is not necessary. Just keep rotating the minute hand - and the sounders will catch up and chime correctly.

SOURCE: need replacement clock hand

Your best bet is to see if the original manufacture of the clock is still in business. If so, they may still have the necessary information for one of their clock makers to make a new hand for you.
The only other solution is to locate a watch maker who specializes in restoration of old clocks and watches. There are many around who are very good. A new replacement hand can be made for you.
In any case, obtaining a hand will not be cheap. There will be a number of hours of work involved to make a new hand. The watch maker will most likely need the clock movement set to him so he can do the exact measurements required.
As for original parts off the shelf for old clocks, these are not easy to find. Many of these clocks were built on a one-by-one individual basis.

I have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.


Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

    I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


    Hi Pam,
    I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick.
