  1. Hi all-is there a name for the crescent shape of this fork and its purpose? Vague memory of seeing one like this but can't find where I had seen it. Thank ya MM
  2. Guys, could you look at the photos and see if by your experience this pallet comes apart? I need to drill it to fit a new pivot as one has snapped. The smallest collet i have is 1.4 mm so I might need to put it in my larger lathe with a 3 jaw chuck and a dedicated drill tail stick to drill and fit the new pivot. Really annoyed as the movement was going when I realised that I put the ratchet wheel on the wrong way round, proceeded to strip the movement happy that it was going and somehow, don’t know how the pivot got snapped on the pallet so a bit miffed now as I know I don’t have one of
  3. I've been using Moebius 9415 to oil the pallet stone. I usually oils the exit pallet impulse face with the amount like you drop a little bubble on it. I really don't know how much amount I should applied and is there any sign to tell whether I'm overoil or underoil. I have one strange case though, the movement right after assembly has 260~270 amplitude but drop to 230 after 10 minus or so. Is this relevent to the pallet stone oiling?
  4. Hi, I have a Waltham 1899 Riverside pocket watch with a broken pallet fork pivot. I'm searching for a replacement fork from a scrap movement. The movement I have is 19 jewels, built in 1906. I am challenged to find the exact same movement as a "AS IS" unit in the usual places, but I see much better selection of other Waltham 16 size movements of the same vintage - the odd 17J Riverside but many more 15J 620, and 17J 625 and 635 examples.Can I replace the pallet fork in my Riverside with one from these lesser, but more common models? - Robert
  5. Hey guys. A friend asked me why the pallet fork will jump to one side but not the other. Any thoughts. I figured magnetized but we struck out there.
  6. Does this pallet fork look right to you folks? It seems like it should not be bent but straight. The watch barely runs with very low amplitude. Does one dare straighten it? The concern is that it came that way to work properly and I have some other problem going on? Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  7. Cheers mates. Im working on a Rolex cal. 2030 lady watch. When put togheter I see that the one end stone on the pallet fork is misplaced. And the balance wheel have very small movment sideways. And stopps after 6-7 seconds. Is the reason that the end stone is msiplaced? Must I buy new pallet fork? This cannot be glued? Shall I replace the escapment wheel as well? As usual, thanks for alle help.... Armand
  8. Dear All, Thank you in advance if you have knowledge in this arena. I am trying to bring a bruised Piaget 12p back to life. On close inspection the pallet fork has had it. Does anyone know if the 9p/12p pallet forks are interchangeable? There is a 12p fork on the bay but it is pricey, about the same cost as a whole 9p... Do I dare ask if anyone has a parts/oiling diagram for these movements? As always, your input is greatly appreciated, Mute
