    Oooops I did it again

    I thought the pallets pins were held in with shellac, looks like tar, probably a bit of extra weight to slow the clock down a tad lol....The slate will clean up OK.

  10. I read not to use lighter fuel, but a good replacement is from the Go outdoors camping store, but I can't remember the name, it's a lot cheaper than lighter fuel, anyone???

    To days clock competition

    Probably saving time and money? could it have been a double dial for a different clock?? a lot of work would have gone into making the dial and back then waste was probably not an option.

    Platform escapement pallets

    Need HELP!!! Not sure if this is allowed just delete if not.. So I now have acquired quite a few jewel pallets for this old platform escapement. All day yesterday I was trying to fix a jewel into this platform and the little blighters kept pinging out of the tweezers and disappearing into the atmosphere, not managing to find any I thought rather than get the BIG hammer out and smash it in (no not really) I would give up as a very bad job. I have not got the eyes or the steady hands for this type of work..So my question is!!! Is there anyone on here that would be kind enough to have a go and try to fix for me, obviously not for free?? Please send me a message... As I said if not allowed please delete.. I hope you all have a good weekend. Thx Len
