What is the correct way to adjust the escapement on a Mauthe

Customer Question

What is the correct way to adjust the escapement on a Mauthe W500 movement. The pawl is held to the shaft with a set screw and there are elongated adjusting slots held by mounting screws to the back plate.
I am having a heck of a time getting the pendulum in beat.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Have you tried to adjust just the pendulum leader from left to right & visa versa until it starts ticking on its own with an even tick tock? Thanks Mike
