Dial Motionworks – St Nicholas Church Fulbeck, Lincolnshire
We were asked to inspect the clock because it kept stopping. If the clock drive was disconnected the clock kept going, suggesting the problem could be with the leading off work or the dial motionworks.
When our clockmaker Mike Whitehurst slowly spun them around every time the hands were as 3.35 approximately the intermediate wheel would come out of mesh and ride up on the hour tube wheel causing a jam. He finally found the problem was with loose woodwork which supported the dial motionworks, this was corrected and the clock is now working correctly again.
