Technician's Assistant: The Clock Technician will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.

Slow down speed of hands on Smiths clock

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I have to see what type of floating balance wheel you have Smith's mantle clocks have a couple different types if you can take a photo of the front face and back so I can see the movement of your clock I can tell you how to regulate the speed. You have an "add files" button that you can click or this link: http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/topics/142 How to Send a Photo or File is in Other. Thanks Mike
