I have a wind-up Regulator type clock that was probably pretty
inexpensive when I received it almost 20 years ago as a gift, but it
has a lot of sentimental value and I don't want to dump it.
The problem is that the hour hand is constantly "losing time." If I
didn't constantly move it ahead of where it should be, it would
probably lose an hour or more a month. The minute hand is dead-on and
the clock itself keeps amazingly accurate time.
So how do I get the hour hand to behave?
Perhaps part of the problem is the clock's bonging - once for each
hour (i.e., twice at 2:00, seven times at 7:00, etc.), plus once at
every half hour. But I don't want to silence the bonging.
