Actually it is not one clock but a dozen. There is a Large clock in the Center of a Cluster of la smaller clocks a each with a face on either Side.

A i thought it was a pity to see it sitting there and decaying a says Caswell who never before had tried to restore a clock. A the museum had tried for 20 years to get it fixed but no one wanted to do it. They said it was too far gone. A but if someone tells me something can to be done ill do Caswell arranged with the clocks owner to repair it in return for half ownership. Now after 1,000 hours of work the restoration is nearly finished. Only adjustment of the clock remains. Yet 12 watchmakers along the Way told him the clock never would run again. The entire Cluster of clocks is powered by a 16 Pound weight suspended on a Nylon Cord. The swing of this pendulum is kept even by two Glass tubes each an Inch in diameter and eight inches Long into which Mercury will be poured. A the difficulty now a explains Caswell a is that according to the books in be referred to clocks of this Type take 24 pounds of Mercury. I Haven to been Able to get that much Mercury. A the Mercury provides weight and takes up the variation in temperature. This would allow for an adjustment say if the Sun were shining on the Here a what Caswell an expert brass and Bronze craftsman faced at the outset of his task the 7-foot-tall Walnut cabinets the top half of which is a Glass Square a had been smashed by vandals who broke into the museum.
