  1. Hi, I have a Rotary Monza I am fixing up. I disassembled the barrel and removed and cleaned the mainspring. I secured a copy of the parts list and it shows that as well as the mainspring, there is also a Brake Spring (part 775 on the picture). What is it, and do I really need it? Certainly Cousins does not sell it. I googled AS 1902 brake spring and ONE result came up of a Russian watch forum discussing this item. Apparently it is thicker than a normal spring and it seems to have some sort of bent over feature on it. Can I just make one using the old mainspring? If so, how long should it be? Is it really necessary? https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&u=http://forum.watch.ru/showthread.php%3Fp%3D5196915&prev=search ROTARY Monza AS 1902.pdf
  2. I needed a portable mat for working at home, and find that the polyurethane foam sheet from UK store called Hobbycraft works well. It has a foam surface, so it will pick up dirt, but nothing is damaged by it, nor bounces off it, and it rolls up and fits in my box.
