    What Could Be Causing Low Amplitude

    HSL thank you for the good work preparing this pdf, illustrates parameters involved, to likes of me with no classical education on the subject. I suggest this to be posted under a topic of its own searchable by subject. Very neccessary and helpful. Joe
  2. You have done a fine job so far, perfectly level nicely concentric . I add the palm of my hand to my tools. The palm of your hand is equipped with feel and capable of outperforming other surfaces , gives you perfect access to the piece, variable angle of attack. takes part in numerous operations ....advantages are too many to mention. All you got to do is accept it as tool and get used to it, it will do wonders. The h/s will be contaminated and would need to take a bath in lighter fluid, but shaped just as you want it. This spring is very easy to work on.
  3. Surely you agree, bending and unbending lowers fatigue threshold, in simple terms some moleculare bonds in the structure brake, such deformities would be the weaker length of the moleculare chain. In simpler terms you weaken h/s structurally as you bend and unbend, furthuremore you would be shortening the functioning length of the h/s as you raise the overcoil bend. A longer stud, if you be willing to consider it, solves the problem you are facing, without creating new ones.

    AS 1194 Accuracy

    I guess 20 seconds is per hr, that makes it 8 mins, two rounds the clock, Something is wrong.

    Bulova parts interchangability

    Hi stuart, Thank you for sending the link, I would have got lost trying to navigate cousinsuk. I got no access to paypal or major credit cards, so easiest to shop domestically which has gone dry over the past fourty years of no US brand. I may get some result if interchangable. Much appreciate your useful help.

    Hi Nickelsilver, I am trying to learn as you show lawren how to adjust pallets, the terms drop lock , total lock ....etc remain undefined to me and moving pallets on instlled fork is not easy, please advice or better yet I wish you make this a lesson walkthrough posted for all.

  8. I Need an escapement wheel for bulova 11blacd. The family beats 18800 and includes various movements ranging from manual wind subsecond , automatic, auto with calender, auto calender date and so on. Am I correct thinking the escapement wheel off of any member of the family fits all members? For instance, do 11 BLA and 11BLACD escapement wheel interchange? Thanks in advance.

    eta 2784 question

    Ultimatety no exception to the cat , box and cyanide in quantum mechanics, OH and niel bohr are saying the same thing. All indications are MS dislodges from the barrel notch, however, if this presumption turned out wrong, you will be the proud owner of a pair good of barrel drums. the chance you don,t have ţo take. There are approaches to safe removal of MS.

    eta 2784 question

    Yes that is one good reason/ logic, if you can tell where a sound is generated. In this case, however, familiarity with the sound and commonality of the culprit helps a lot. Manufacturers recommend MS removal routinely at periodic cleaning/services, MS springness weakens by use. Use of right grease and oiling the arbor is a must. Some barrels says do not open. As OH puts it, you don,t know what is happen inside unless you open the barrel.

    eta 2784 question

    Mainspring dislodges from the notch inside the barrel, it's coil turns to unwind to release the power. The question was, what dose that sound mean? It means the mainspring dislodges from the notch inside the barrel therefore unwinds to release some or all of its power reserve. No telling if the barrel is reuseable or should be replaced before you crack it open.. Should you need any help I get my tools and stay with you step by setp if neccessary til fixed.
  13. Providing you are comfortable with balance complete removal, doing so would, Eleminate the risk of damaging the pivot as you push to get the spring installed. The bridge would be under your full control to a point you can get the task done without kif spring tool.

    eta 2784 question

    Judging by the number of turns before release, mainspring dislodges from thr barrel.

    eta 2784 question

    Havn,t read all previous advice. How long would it run after you hear the sound? In other words how much power remains in reserve?
