Adjusting the hour strike
The clock shows one time but the strike tells
another. This can happen when there is a time
change. If the hour count is not in sync with
the time displayed, it is easy to correct.
Step one is to advance the minute hand
until the clock chimes. Count the number
of times the clock strikes. Let's say in
this example the clock strikes four times.
The clock struck four times, but the clock
three o'clock. So we take hold of the hour hand,
And move it to the four o'clock position.
The hour hand now is correct. The clock
just struck four o'clock and the clock is
showing four o'clock.
The clock is now working correctly, but it shows the wrong time. We just
need to set the clock. Always set the
time by using the minute hand. If the
clock stops and you need to re-set it, you
should never move the hour hand to the set
the clock to the correct hour.
So to set the clock to the correct time,
always take the minute hand and move it
around however many times it takes to get
the clock to the correct time.
If you have done everything just as described.
above, the clock will now be showing the correct
time, and striking the correct number. And
remember, you never want to use the hour Hand
(the short hand) to set the time.
