It's pretty neat, but I don't envy the people back in the day having to make micro-adjustments to the pendulum and shit. It took a lot of effort to get it to even stay ticking longer than 5 minutes, and now that I have it ticking it ended up 5 minutes fast over the course of 12 hours which is roughly .6 extra seconds per minute.
Yeah, that Westminster chime has that effect. I wish I had a grandfather clock. My grandma had one in her house, but it was never would or anything. I remember them saying it didn't work right, but idk. I also remember one time it WAS working so who knows, maybe they were just too lazy to wind it.
