How do you wind Ansonia mantel clock?
People also ask, how do you wind a mantle clock?
To wind the clock use the enclosed key. Turn key clockwise until it stops (about 3 1/2 turns on the left winder and about 4 1/2 turns on center and right winder. The center winder is for the timekeeping, the right winder is for the quarter-hour chime, and the left winder is for the hour strike.
Furthermore, what are the three winding holes on a clock? Three Winding Holes The hole in the middle, near the '6' powers the time train which makes the clock keep time. The hole to the right powers the quarter-hour chiming and the hole on the left powers the striking at the top of the hour.
Similarly, can you wind a clock too much?
Most likely problem: In actual fact it is almost impossible to overwind a clock. Once the coils of a flat mainspring are in firm contact with one another, than the spring can not be physically wound any tighter. The only way to truly overwind a clock spring is to turn it so tightly that the spring actually breaks.
What does F and S mean on a clock?
Some clocks have a small place that looks like a mini clock winding arbor at the 12. It may say F / S or A / R. The F / S this means fast or slow, and the A / R represents advance or retard. This controls the timing of the clock and turning it to fast or advance makes time faster opposite for slow.
