This is my Shatz 400 day/Anniversary clock. I bought it in an antique mall.
These clocks need a level surface, I used a level to test the surface before placing it on the surface. Some of them can be adjusted for leveling by rotating a disk on the feet of the clock. The speed of the pendulum can be adjusted by rotating the disk above the pendulum. They are usually marked with an "S" and an "F" with arrows indicating the direction to turn them. If you buy one let it run for about 48 hours before attempting to adjust the pendulum speed.

    Ken,
    Other than my original comments above, the only other thing I can tell you about these clocks if your having problems with it not keeping the correct time, is that they get out of beat or sync. If this happens take it to a clock repair shop and they can get it back into beat or sync. To tell if the clock is out of beat, listen and watch the rotation of the pendulum. Listen closely to the clock, it should tick with the pendulum going clockwise. Time the tick of the clock going clockwise, then when the pendulum goes counter clockwise time the interval when it ticks again. The time interval should be the same both clockwise and counter clockwise. In other words if it takes 2 seconds going clockwise to tick, it should take the same amount of time to tick going counter clockwise, if the time is not equal, the clock is out of beat. The cost for getting back in beat is nominal.
