My cuckoo clock has only two weights (there are various mechanisms)
but the adjustment is done by moving the weight on the pendulum in
small increments - up for faster, down for slower. Remember, we need
to fix this for a 24-hour period, not within an hour. By 'small
increments' I would say one millimeter/sixteenths of an inch.
I've also found with my cuckoo the closest I can generally get is
about five minutes per day accurancy. He'll be fine (on time) for
weeks and then start loosing or gaining time. Haven't tracked it but
seems to be related to temperature. (The grandmother clock also needs
a slight adjustment at times, but has a 30-day mechanism vs 1-day,
plus cost a "little" more.)
