      As a practical matter, none of us is likely to "wear out" a bug by using too much weight.  Having said that, it is intuitive that the more weight you add to the pendulum, the more wear you will have on the trunion pin and its socket.  The downward force of the added weight (or any weight, including that of the pendulum itself), is exerted at a right angle against the front bearing surface of the "top" trunion pin and its socket and against the rear bearing surface of the "bottom" trunion pin and its socket.  Do I think the heavy weight is a recipe for a ruined trunion?  No, but instinctively, I try to avoid additional weight on my pendulums.
