  1. possibly connected to a foot pedal that would then come through those holes to turn the countershaft to then turn the lathe.... that was a pure guess.
  2. Hi Keith Some pictures would help, maybe we can give you some tips on where to put the part. Next time you disassemble a movement, i would suggest you take some photos unless you know the movement by the back of the your hand! as for the schematic, caliber no alone is not going to help, what is the manufacturer. xxx cal 7115. Thanks J
  3. Your wife is my hero, I just tried this and pop! I've been using this without the armrests as they have been useseless grumbling about the waste of money- thanks hahahahahha
  4. Did a update help, Shane Tapatalk is no longer enabled for this site
  5. i found someone that used to do it and he told me not to bother, you may be lucky if its just the bulb!
  6. Kid springs tools, used for taking off and taking on the springs Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  7. just like the big red button that says do not press....i absolutely would open it, and replace it if i could , a new mainspring is part of a service unless a decent replacement is not available then i would clean it and re oil it at a minimum. likelyhood do not open is a reminder for the service centre to replace the entire balance complete, but that was then and the parts are not necessary easily available!
  8. I would say First way as you feel the full reset and know it's nots going anywhere as you haven't lift your finger back up Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  9. Pushing the reset down will ensure the pinion is in the reset position , not holding it means you can push and move it so it might not be in the correct position when you reset it Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  10. Did you ensure you had the pusher down when you set it? If not it's going to reset to the same place which isn't 12. Also if it's not the same place every time then I would look to see if the hand is now loose. It needs to be a tight fit in order to stay in the same place when reset die to the sheer amount of force a reset produces . Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  11. My opinion would suggest it's a bit off (e.g franken) Looks like the dial has been stamped breitling and the bridge marked breitling is from a different movement. Hands look like they do not go with the dial. However I am by no means a expert in breitlings, waiting on more experts to chime in Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  12. Yep, you have to move the arm insode the machine left or right to get it in sync with pressing the buttons that lift and drop the jars. You wil need to unscrew the boot and knock out the metal pin it's attached to. I don't have the machine to show you but it's doable and easy to achieve. The first thing I will look at is whether the basket is going up high enough as that usually is a the reason for the jam which knocks it out of sync. If it doesn't then it needs to be topped up with hydraulic fluid. Good luck Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  13. Sorry so.you mean power is bad on just the basic movement. If so then you need to start breaking that down too. Removing the balance and the pallet, winding up the watch , what is the winding down like, smooth and fast or does it need help to wind down? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
