  5. Hello Vincent and welcome to the forum, well done with the career change wishing you all the best .
  6. One other point Identification can be checked via the bestfit books of which there was a download link posted by Old Hippy some months ago They are to big to send as pdf's but find able via the search option on the top right of the screen, worthwile finding them and downloading a copy. cheers
  7. I think Joe is right , as is just measure the spring length - thickness - height and barrel diameter and look it up on cousins site for a GR spring once assembled a picture of the keyless work may lead to identification for you thanks.
  8. Hi welcome to the forum , would it be possible to post some pictures of the movement close up to enable members to see what we are dealing with. Movement and calibration number are use ful to know also. If the watch has been stood for a long while it may just need a service (clean oil and new battery).but there is also the possibility it’s dead. The line release will spin the gear work ok but the watch may still not run. Knowing what the movement is will assist us in our diagnosis. Thank you.
  9. No problem Shane I think Watch-O-Scope would be a good investment as it utilises the PC you already have and a purpose built Amp is cheap enough. cheers
  10. I would agree if it was using a toothed pulley then yes, but some toothed belts are "V" belts toothed for easier curvature around pulleys but the "V"pulley is smooth so slippage occurs. There was some Large printers I worked on that had both types driving the print barrel, solid brass with a beryillium coating so the hammers did not flatten the characters.. 600 Lpm and 300Lpm.
  11. Hi Michael I think the principal is sound its the material the screws are made of Too soft. Any resitance and chop the head is burred. with these screws there is a world of difference between the Phillips head and a cross point they need their specific drivers
  12. Hi Would have been better posting the complete movement, members may be able to Identify it from the setting lever spring shape and the keyless works as a string of bits its hard work. Its a pin lever movement.
  13. Nice one what size basket, I have a NationalUltrasonic cleaner its a big heavy beast that I have cleaned up the ultrasonic transducers on the pots are broken all the rest works ok but I have been unable to get hold of a basket arangement to fit. I shall post some pics later on busy at the moment and the thing weighs 1/2 Hunderdweight.
