  1. You are correct, thanks Sent from my GT-N5110 using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for the data. Friction fit is odd. Sent from my GT-N5110 using Tapatalk
  3. The pinion I actually used is the one in the movement picture and not the one in the double pinion picture. However the one I used has the 10 leaves. It sort of works. The two pinions I the other pic are the transplant candidates. Just not completely sure how to transplant a pinion. Sent from my GT-N5110 using Tapatalk
  4. I am replacing the hour gear on an old Large Swiss Pocket Watch. The old pinion had 12 leaves and X teeth and the gear I found has 10 leaves and less teeth on the wheel. When I dropped in the gear and then the center hour gear, I turned the crown and everything seems to work and the gears are meshing properly and the minute and hour hands are coordinated (didn’t think that was possible. Now it still feels a little tight in places when I set the time, so I have decided to transplant the pinion to another gear that has the same size and teeth count as the original; plus the original pinion is thicker. So what I am looking for is advice on transplanting the old pinion to the new gear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  6. I just needed to have this tool, in case I need to make a plate....or other alignment work. But if I never, it is a cool tool from the past. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  8. Bought an upright tool off eBay and there was one problem, no bottom alignment rod. So, found a piece of stock Brass and carved it up on my Lathe. This is the result. The nails on one of the hinges were out and the hinge was rusted in place. So I used some small pointy watchmakers screws and replaced the nails. I then oiled the hinges and worked them in nicely. Next, the box fabric was unglued on the Tom so I lifted up the fabric and spread a light layer of Elmer’s glue between the wood and the black cloth: and put 4 magic books on top for an hour. Next step was to blacken the box as there were chips of cloth missing and it just looked tattered. So I used Kiwi Color shoe shine and it worked like a charm. Now I needed to shine up the cloth on the inside of the box the same was...and used a paintbrush for the corners bu dipping it in the show shine. Then I needed to clean up the red velvet on the inside so I used a lint role: as well as tearing off a piece for the tight spots. I also needed to clean up some aging mold sobthe line roll with some help with a fine screwdriver worker great. I then shoe polished where the mold was. The last step was to polish the Uprighting Tool using Peek and a lot of elbow grease. Here is the before and afterAnd the Final. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  14. Was it friction fit in place? This one appears to be a friction fit, even from the data I included. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
