Gilbert Mantel Clock, How does the chime work?
Looking at the "l" shaped part on the main shaft.
I recently voluntered to clean a friends Gilbert Mantle clock. Well, I took photos, took it apart, eventually got it together, but now have a question on putting the last little part on it. I would like to know the relationship between the "l" shaped part in the middle of the photo and the rest of the chime parts.
Seems to me that it will raise the striker and drop it every hour. Does not make sense at this point. How should it be set and what does it do? What is its name. Thanks.
