I have made 4 clocks now and no matter the design, I have problems with their operation in humid weather. I live very close to Lake Erie in Toledo, Ohio (USA) and it seems like when the humidity gets above 90%, all but one of my clocks all but stop. My second Quardecimus build seems immune to slowing but will stop if I have the doors/windows open when it's raining, then starts up later after the weather passes and keeps on ticking. Huh I was told by David to keep the gears clean from the finish and have done that even though a clockmaker in Hawaii named Clayton Boyer told me to use a construction pencil trimmed back to apply graphite to the contact surfaces of the gear teeth. Do any of you have a quick fix for this syndrome of stoppage?  Tia Tracy
