I've tried the Coke for rust removal and while modestly effective it is...well, sticky . I recently paid up for the food grade acid for experimentation. Vigorous effervescence for modest results...l'll follow up on how it goes- thanks...
I'm as guilty as most people for not following up on posts. I broke a stem, removing a stubborn back. Just enough stem to grip but couldn't move the crown. Soaked in coke for 22 hours?, unscrewed easily.
I don't like asking about the quality of other members clocks, incase the answer upsets them but I know next to nothing about clocks and would like to know about the quality of this one. Hope you don't mind @tyl. Also @oldhippy, how do you tell a good clock movement from a bad one, I've got pretty good at watch movements but clueless at clocks.
It's the little screw what prevents the domed-top pusher from twisting. It is only found on some models. I need to remove it for the reamer to fit. A week's worth of WD-40 and no budge. Because of the shape there isn't room for good purchase with implements. Brilliant ideas anyone? My 'brightest' is the case back trick- modest application of cyanoacrylate, then an appropriately sized flange nut, then a..deep well socket? Do they make them that small?
The next helpful thing to do would be to get me a picture Of the spring so I can confirm what they look like.
Also a picture of the backside of the circuit board in other words the circuit board that faces towards the movement because we should build a look and see where the contacts go in other words there should be some pads for them the push on you might even see the impression into the circuit board where they were pushing.
Yeah, it looks like that’s what I did wrong when assembling. I never pushed the spring fully out of the way when installing the barrel.
Yes, it will run for a bit until it seems to catch again. I had inspected the barrel and didn’t see any signs of damaged or Bent teeth
