  1. Eta 2824 issues

    As already said, incorrect oils, cheap oils will cause all kinds of problems for you.
  2. Welcome to the forums, seeing as both those models are vintage, you may well have some difficulty in sourcing pushers, so I would suggest you c heck out the likes of eBay, for a parts watch/es to salvage the pushers from.
  3. Some kind of pivot straightener ?
  4. 7753 2575 Date Jumper Spring

    Thanks Luke, you know, I'm embarrassed to say, I completely forgot about Gleave & Co, shame on me. I will purchase from you shortly, I have just registered an account as I have usually dealt with you via email.
  5. 7753 2575 Date Jumper Spring

    I have, and whilst I did find a seller in Canada, I first refused too pay the extortion price they were charging, almost €30 euros, but in the end I had to bite the bullet, only to find they won't be able to get to me until mid-April, same as cousins, which no doubt is where this eBay money maker is making his money.
  6. Has anyone got a 2575 ETA 7753 date jumper spring spare? Everywhere I've searched are out of stock, and not available until mid April 7753 2575 Date Jumper Spring by S STEEL, on Flickr
  7. Hour hand stuck to hour wheel

    Hand levers would help.
  8. During my TZ courses, I had to purchase selected tools for each stage of the course, from there I went on, and purchased many more as time went by, tools, and equipment in watchmaking is a never ending procedure, but it doesn't have to be a burden, it can be a good investment, that said, save your money and buy wisely.
  9. Thats a great idea, thanks. Another problem I'm experiencing though is the bottom of the chamber corrodes like crazy too. Bergeon 5555/98 Chamber base corrosion by S STEEL, on Flickr
  10. And another bites the dust, damn it, I have been using distilled water too. Do you think Deionised water would be more suitable to prevent corrosion? This is my third rod now. DSC09062 by S STEEL, on Flickr
  11. Changing cannon pinion height ETA 2824

    If you go onto the cousinsuk website, there's a tech sheet with an exploded view, and part numbers available to download.
  12. You can adjust the amount of oil that is deposited from those auto oilers.
  13. Sounds to me that dried up oil where there shouldn't be oil in the first place causing your issue.
