Seller: theclockpartstore (3.322) 99.9%, Location: Brighton, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381307639803 Age: Antique Reproduction, Type: Clock Parts, Sub-Type: Pendulums, Bobs, Rods, Details: French Clock Pendulum Hook Top of rod on standard rods is unthreaded, as this may need to be shortened. Pilot hole may need to be enlarged to suit the pendulum. If this is not practical, the diameter of the rod may need to be reduced Hook suitable for all 3 of our French Clock Pendulums sold here: Visit Our eBay Shop: The Clock Part Store There are two ways to fit the hook to one of these pendulums Cut the rod to the correct length and then either: Thread the rod and tap the hole in the hook Enlarge the hole in the hook and reduce the diameter of the rod. Glue or solder them together. Why doesn't a new hook fit a new rod? A new French hook is designed to fit any rod, not just new ones, so the hook and its hole has to be small. A new rod is designed to fit most common bobs, so has to be larger than some original rods. To make them fit each other, enlarge the hole in the hook as much as possible without weakening it. Reduce the diameter of the rod where it goes into the hook with a flat file. Some repairers thread both items to make a quality fit. Others make the items a friction fit and either silver solder them apply a little adhesive. A supplier cannot reduce the diameter of the rod for you because you will have to cut it to length first.
