How Do You Adjust a Grandfather Clock?

Answer

In order to adjust a grandfather clock, you should set the time by hand and swing the pendulum. Monitor the speed of the pendulum and if it moves too fast, increase the length between two ticks by turning the pendulum nut clockwise and if it is moving slowly, anti-clockwise. It is required that you constantly keep an eye on the clock for it to show the correct time.
