  1. The crown wheel was loosened by turning it cw but the ratchet screw should be a regular thread...I think... I’ll see if I can get a little diesel fuel. I’ll try the heat thing too. Thank you for the suggestions. I promise not to use WD40...
  2. The ratchet wheel screw is extremely tight. I can't remove it. I tried to loosen it a bit by putting on a little pallet jewel oil and letting it seep in under the head of the screw. Hopefully it will loosen it a bit but I am not certain it will penetrate far enough. I don't want to force it so much I break the screw. Any ideas?
  3. Yeah, it's $20 so it won't break me and if it works - great. I'm glad I bought a staking tool. Can't do the job without it - at least not very well.
  4. The balance staff was damaged, bent and broken pivots. I bought one on eBay. Hopefully it will be as good as new soon.
  5. I’m one of those ‘oddities out there’...LOL It needs a good cleaning and a new balance staff. I’m thinking it got dropped once too often. I hope I can get a balance for it; it’s a very well made time machine.
  6. I got the front off. I used a very little penetrating oil on the rim and it came off quite easily. Thank you for pointing that out to me. Now to see if I can do something to make it work better.
  7. Thank you so much. It probably opens the same way. I’m away from the shop just now and won’t be back until early next week.
  8. No apologies necessary; I’ll get to it ASAP. I’m away for a few days. Thank you for your ideas.
  9. It does have slightly raised and decorated ring. There must be a separation somewhere but I can’t seem to find it but there has to be one. Does it separate at the raised ring?

  11. I have a Solar pocket watch with the seconds at 6:00 that needs a new balance staff. I cannot figure out how to take the movement out. I removed the case screws and the stem and thought it would just drop out but no such luck. It appears that the main plate is larger than the back of the watch which seems to be the only removable part. There must be a way to get it out but I can't see it. Please let me know if you have had experience with this type of watch. Thank you
  12. Good for you! I have a microscope as well but for watchmaking. It shows you a lot more dirt than a loupe...
  13. I tried to spell 'spelling error' wrong but it wouldn't let me...LOL
