  1. Just started using my American Watch and Tool Co. lathe and realized quickly that I need more collets. It is a 10mm lathe. Wondering if anyone has info on what other brands will work with this lathe or if it is only original American Watch collets that will work. Have started researching online but I know that this forum is the best source of information so thought I would ask.
  2. Thanks for the reply. I had not noticed that I was in the wrong forum when I posted. will repost in the proper area.
  3. I could not find this topic anywhere so thought I would ask. I have a American watch tool co. 10mm lathe and need more collets. what types will work with this lathe? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I found out the hard way that Levin collets will not.
  4. I should also add that the pdf posted by wls1971 is amazing. Thank you
  5. Thanks you all for the help. And yes this clock is a little more difficult than many others but it is reassembled and running. just not keeping accurate time yet. I hope to make that happen with the help provided by this forum. Thanks again.
  6. I am working on a Sessions Westminster that I believe is a 416 W.C. or a Westminster chime C. The clock was missing the pendulum and weight so I am wondering if anyone could help with pendulum length. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  7. thanks. The cursing didn't work for me either.
  8. My apologies. I should have posted this in the clock forum. I will do so as soon as possible.
  9. I'm hoping someone can help with my Telechron-M1. I have been unable to remove the hour hand, it is quite stuck. I've tried using a D shaped puller but did not want to risk damaging the threads for the minute hand. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Thanks for the reply. A sewing machine motor sound good. The lathe looks like the one pictured above but has no branding on it.
  11. Thanks for the pictures. I picked up an old lathe from an estate sale but no motor. Anyone have any advice on what motor to use?
  12. Also, I have watched the videos. Thank you so much for taking the time to post them. They are all excellent.
  13. Thank you all for your advice. I know that a replacement would be cheap and easier than the hours spent on the one I have but I don't do this for profit, it's just a hobby that I enjoy and I happen to have the watch so thought I would give it a try.
  14. I am about to tear down a 7t32 movement and was wondering if anyone had advice on cleaning and oiling as these movements are made primarily of plastic. Thanks in advance for any help.
