New England Clock Company Clock

I have a New England Clock Company clock. I can open a panel in the back and see the clock movement and other things. My clock number is: NE-218C. It is an Eight -day spring wound pendulum clock.

The pendulum fell off and in trying to rehang it, both the top and bottom parts of the pendulum are just too hard for me to figure out for hanging. I also see a little screw piece that looks as if it should go somewhere .... perhaps in the piece upon on top .... where it might fit in somehow? The clock can be rewound, but it races through time without the pendulum.

How can I rehang the pendulum pieces... they must fit somehow but I don't know how they should fit together and still allow for them to hang on what ever the pendulum hangs on.

Clock Pendulum
by: Bill

Hi Dennis,

It sounds like maybe the suspension spring is broken.

AT the very top of the movement there should be a small flat spring with a hole in the top secured to a post either with a small screw or a tapered pin. The pendulum "leader" (the piece the pendulum hangs on) has a hook on the top which hangs on this little spring and goes through the lever that moves back and forth coming out of the movement. Then, finally the pendulum hangs on this leader.

I hope this helps.
