Don't forget that it needs to be solidly mounted Phillip. Any movement of the case will waste the energy of the pendulum, which is massively heavy in these things. Level the case so that the pendulum is in the centre of the scale.

The rheostat on the left side of the case controls the current through the impulse coils and also through the slave. If it is struggling to maintain, or if the slave doesn't run, slide the rheostat towards the bottom. The current is supposed to be (according to the instructions) 220mA, so your wall wart needs to be good for at least half an Amp.
