"I thought it was a pity to see it sitting there and decaying." says Caswell, who never before had tried to restore a clock. "The museum tad tried for 20 years to get it fixed, but no one wanted to do it. They said it was too far gone. -But if someone tells me something can't be done. 111 do it.' Caswell arranged with the clock's owner to repair it in return for half ownership. Now, after 1,000 hours of work, the restoration is nearly finished- Only adjustment of the clock remains. Yet 12 watchmakers along the way told him the clock never would run again. * * * · THE ENTIRE cluster of docks is powered by a 16- pound weight suspended on a nylon cord. The swing of this pendulum is kept even by two glass tubes, each an inch in diameter and eight inches long, into which mercury will be poured. "The difficulty now," explains Caswell.
