Grandfather Clock Weights

by Angela McBee

My father had a great love for grandfather clocks and collected them. He passed away a year ago, and left me a beautiful grandfather clock which I will treasure forever. It appears the clock is handmade, very beautiful carving.

My problem......of the three weights the one on the left is missing ( I believe the one for the chimes) the right and center weights each weigh 7 lbs. What would be the correct weight for the left one? and where could I find one? I am not real concerned with them matching, as I know this would be almost impossible to do. I would appreciate any help or information you could give me. I really want to restore the operation of this clock. I rally miss the sound of my Dad's clock.

Thank You So Much,
