Sorry Jim.

You're on the right lines, John. It is from a clock. But what is it, and what is its function?

Not quite, John. Although it was used in clocks with a pendulum, it was invented much earlier than the pendulum.

Not gravity.

A clue: These were used in antique spring-powered mechanical watches and clocks, a ????? is a cone-shaped pulley with a spiral groove around it, wound with a cord or chain which is attached to the mainspring barrel.
