Today, after about six weeks of intermittent efforts, I finally got the incabloc spring fit into the setting. Good thing too as it was the next to last of this size in my parts stock. But, you must defeat the demon, you cannot give up. RMD VID_20181121_131734671.mp4
I am new to watch repair, but have successfully repaired, cleaned and oiled several pocket watches. This picture is from an Elgin pocket watch that I am currently working on. The piece indicated by the arrow, obviously assists in toggling between winding and setting via the clutch pinion but, as you can see, there is no screw in the hub to hold it in place. However, in the bridge, above the piece indicated, is a small screw in a threaded through-hole that is not retaining any other pieces and, at first glance, appeared to be doing nothing. I assume it is there to somehow retain the piece shown, and possibly adjust the resistance/tension of that piece. I've haven't seen one like this yet. What exactly is the mystery screw supposed to be doing, and how do I adjust it to do so?
