  2. Hello there ! I'm facing a problem fitting the barrel arbor into the mainspring. I've just changed the mainspring for a brand new one, from generale ressorts and I have difficulty to insert the arbor, the spring end is very tight. Any suggestion because I'm afraid to break the spring or damage the barrel or arbor. Thank you. Nico
  3. Hi there i’m French and May can help here. Answers were right for both of them. “De” is the first part oft he name usually for noble people and was used to give information about the place where the person was. I confirm that the haute Normandie etc... is the address here in France but you need the street I guess. Nico

  5. Thank you so much for taking time to explain! I understand what i’m Suppose to do and will let you know if I could make it. Nico
  6. To be sure to understand, you press on the canon pinion with your tool to be sure it’s straight against the watch plate and then you pull the second wheel down? If so, how do you pull it without moving?
  7. Hi HSL and thanks for your answer. Yes it's a pocket watch. A staking set seems something I can’t afford for the moment. Any other solution?
  8. Hi there! I’m trying to remove a canon pinion with the appropriate just bought tool but the pinion doesn’t come off. Problem is that it is sliding, there is no shape to hang on. Any idea ?
  9. Hi, I’m new here and already did the level 1 and 2 of watch repair. I did few complete process with some watches and really love it. Nice to be there! Nico
