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?
