Hi all doing my very first full repair on a balance staff/wheel assy. which includes removing the broken staff to replace it, roller table to re-shellack the impulse pin, clean, poise, truing, etc etc. After i removed the bad staff I noticed in the balance arm bore looks kinda ragged. my questions are: do I take a jeweling reamer or broach to remove those or proceed with staking the new staff in and prepare for riveting? 2nd question: looks like the old pivot measures .12mm and the new one is .13mm will i need to remove that extra .1mm? i'm thinking I do but all I have is a Levin pivot polisher, a few ruby and steel burnishers. I have no lathe. pic #1 shows the burrs.
Hello A friend of my father gave me this old pocketwatch to see if I could repare it. As you see in the picture, the balance wheel is extremely bent. I tried to bend it back, but i cant make it good enough. Does anyone know where I can find a balancewheel for this Revue 30 movement? I have tried to search around online, however, I cant find any. Is there a generic balance that would fit in here? Best regards Nicholas
