I recently inherited a 7' grandfather clock and moved it from safe 
country down to earthquake prone So. Cal.  The three weights are ~ 12 
#'s each so it is extremely top-heavy when "wound" and they are at the 
top.  I know it needs to be attached to the wall but am not sure how.  
Should I use a L bracket and mount it solidly or maybe use a cable so it 
has a little movement?  Spring?

Second question:  When the front door is opened, it has an extremely 
acrid musty odor.  Baking soda seems to do nothing.  I hesitate to use 
anything with its own smell for fear of impregnating (Now, now, no puns 
please!) the beautiful Pennsylvania Cedar.  Any ideas?
