It should help to lengthen the pendulum. How fast is it?

I think there should be a better way.

Welcome to the forum Bobman.  It is not very active, but there are a few occasional gems.

The simplicity design appears to have a 1 meter pendulum.  Actually, 0.9939 meters should produce a 1 second beat.  Lowering the bob by 1.38mm should slow the clock by 1 minute every 24 hours.  13.8mm should slow it down by 10 minutes.
