    Bet you are glad you didn't bid for this now wls1971 new nylon and mainspring £42.14 what is the best way to clean the dial or are you saying leave it as it is

    Back again While i am waiting for mainspring to be delivered decided to have a look at the case and dial ,don't know if anyone can advise me on this as it's not related to the movement of the clock ,at the front of the clock is a crack which someone has tried to fill my problem do i take of the mouldings off and see if i clamp and try a close the gap then fill or will that cause it to split somewhere else or just fill it as it is. Next the dial i would like to freshen the face up and the numerals seem to have been painted i not sure if someone has had a go at painting them or if that is how it

    Decided to take the mainspring out of the barrel today to clean and inspect it, i noticed a crack in the end that attaches to the barrel when it came to releasing the spring, the end came off and went inside i then went against everything you are told not to do and ended up taking it out by handtaxi on hand to take me A&E but didn't need it it came out fine must say my heart was in overdrive.

    Don't know if you can see clearly on the photo there is two small chips out of the fusee do you think it will cause a problem when i come to assemble the clock.

    just read what you did Tmuir i don't know what i would have done if i had the problems you did don't have anything like the equipment you have (hope i am not talking to soon ) probably take it to a clock repairer or put it back on ebay for spares nice work you done there

    oldhippy you are not doing much for my ego clock all stripped down including the fusee oil everywhere and in the fusee the rachet and clip spring looked like oil and grease do you normally put grease anywhere in this type of clock
