  1. I'm having a devil of a time trying to insert the barrel arbor into the mainspring. I don't want to bend the mainspring out of shape so i'm turning to this forum for suggestions. I have taken Mark's course and (repeatedly) watched the chapter on "FITTING THE BARREL ARBOR AND LID". - He mentions using a pair of strong brass tweezers in the video. - Any suggestions as what are the best tweezers. (I only have a #2 and #4 straight titanium tweezers so far)? - I my case the inner coil of the mainspring is slightly smaller than the arbor but i can't insert the arbor at much of an angle because of the radius of the bottom hole in the barrel, which complicates getting the arbor to fit. - Suggestions? Thank you! Steve
  2. This Kienzle Markant has a mainspring arbor that is part of the barrel lid (top of pic). The challenge is to wind the spring around the arbor, then insert it into the barrel. Has anyone dealt with this before, and is there a tool to do it? I cannot see how a "standard" mainspring winder will handle this...
  3. Maybe should have asked this question a bit earlierIs this screw ever a left handed thread? Was happily tearing down my AS 984, until I got to this little swine! I did get it out but it appears to have sheared off! Is drilling it out an option, or will I have to replace the arbor? Any other suggestions as to how I can repair my muck up?
