Working on a 2892-2 yesterday and I sent the balance lower cap jewel into orbit. :pulling-hair-out:

I have two options and I'm struggling with both due to lack of knowledge.

1) Buy a new Seitz jewel and fit - When on the cousins website https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/jewels-seitz all the cap jewels bar one type are obsolete am I looking at the correct section? Can anyone tell me what size jewel is used in the lower block, I would measure the top but ive heard they're different sizes.

 

2) buy a new lower block and remove the cap jewel, is this one correct, shows as 2892a2, assuming they're the same?

Thanks for any help

PS. My technique for finding lost parts launched into oblivion is to empty out my little Dyson vacuum, vacuum the area, tip out contents onto a large white surface like a dinner plate and search through with fingers. If it's metal (obviously not much use in this case) a strong magnet is useful as well (but be sure to demagnetise the piece if you find it). It's a dirty job but where there's muck there's luck.

That site is really good, fair play to them for taking pictures of every part. I will definitely use them when possible.

I found these on cousins by chance so I’m feeling relieved

I also ordered a container of the mixed jewels as suggested so thanks..

That’s a great tip, I’m going to buy a little Vac to do the same! I already have an LED lamp setup under the desk and I’ve been quite successful. I think confidence has gotten the better of me, before this week it’s been a while since I’ve lost any parts. Mainly due to buying decent tweezers I think

Mine as well.  The vacuum has saved me many times.  The magnet a few as well.
