Adjusting the time on our mantel clocks

Posting date: 2nd March 2011 20:26

Q How do you adjust the time on my Britain Clock Co Mantel Clock that I bought from you - the clock is running too fast?

A There is an adjuster on the back of the mantel clock and one full turn = one minute of adjustment. Negative adjustment with pull the time back and positive adjustment will increase the time.

Once the adjustment has been made, eg two full turns anticlockwise if two minutes fast, and then the clock needs to be reset to the correct time. It will then not gain or loose time if set correctly.

Each customer was only adjusting the screw on the back by very small amounts, less than one turn at a time. This would adjust the clock by less than a minute but they were afraid to overstress it.
