Wrt Will Be Offline From 10Pm Gmt

Recommended Posts

Just a prior warning that I will take the site down tonight at 10pm GMT for a software update. 

 

 

This should solve a couple of little niggles (Facebook profile pictures not loading and IE users using copy/paste).

 

I will also update the Tapatalk plugin to the latest version.

 

Hopefully the site should not be down long - maybe 30 minutes.

 

Mark :)

Thanks Geo.

 

Just one problem I am getting. When I use the quick reply box the reply shows as being made by Guest. But when I refresh the page it shows me as the poster. Don't know what that's all about. I'm sure I will get to the bottom of it.

It seems to work allright for me, I'm posting a link just to see how it work, not to follow it since it is not related to anything!

Yes!! It works! Thank you Mark.

 

Will you just correct the money transfer feature, every time I cut and paste it deposit US$4,000 in my checking account....Just kidding! :D

I'm busy working on the Gold manufacturing facility, but I will get right on it  :bling:

    • Hi fernando. Let us know how you get on.
    • OK, in You case You will assemble the movement with the line attached to the barrel and fusee and will  wind the line  entirely on the barrel after that. It is important when replacing the line to know the correct lenght of the line. The rule is that when line wound on the fudsee entirely, about 1/4 turn still to remain on the barrel. Yes, no tension. The ratchet is not placed yet, the spring in the barrel is complitelly unwound. At the end of the step the fusee is empty and the line is attached to it and strained perpendiculary to it, not on tangent. The escape wheel. Use whatever that will not damage anything. Yes, this is typing mistake, sorry. The word 'pendulum' here is not correct, You should use 'anchor' and yes, it is removed from the movement at this point, according my instruction 1 (Ihave used the word 'lever' there):   Ok, let sey the barrel arbour makes 6 full turns when winding the spring in the barrel from unwound to fully wound state of the spring. Let sey that the barrel makes 4.5 full turns when winding the clock from fully unwound (the line is on the barrel) to fully wound (the line is on the fusee) state. This means that You should not wind the spring in the barlel when adjusting the initial tension to more than 1.5 turns of the arbour of the barrel.  If You make 2 full turns, then when winding the clock, the barrel will be able to turn to only 4 turns, so the limiting device will not limit the rotation of the fusee arbour and You will be able to force the line much more than when the limiting device acts, also the power reserve will be less. Hope this is clear now... Yes, but again - not the pendulum, but the anchour.   About the loosing time... In this kind of escapement, the frequency pritty much depends on the torque. The higher torque - the highrer frequency. This is because this escapement forces the pendulum to oscillate significantly faster than it's own resonant fequency. The frequency depends on the 'depth' of the escapement too - the deeper escapement is, the lower the frequency, and the higher amplitude of pendulum oscillations. The heavier the pendulum is, the harder to the movement (the escapement torque) to force the pendulum to oscillate faster than it's own frequency. And in the end, the own pendulum frequency depends only on the pendulum lenght and a little on the suspension spring 'strenght' This are all the relations between all the factors. You can try to use the old spring (if it is not broken) and see if the clock will work faster with it. Yes, the old springs of fusee clocks sometimes give bigger torque than modern ones, no matter if they seem to be 'set' You can shorten the pendulum to achieve correct frequency. If the torque is reduced, but enough for the movement to work reliably,  then reduced torque will only lead to lessen the wear. The torque in fusee movements is more or less constant all the time, this is the function of the fusee. You can use the Clock Tuner  free app for android to adjust faster the clock rate. You will need to know the BPH of the movement, so count the teeth of the wheels and pinions and calculate the BPH
    • Hi! My bad. I meant to say that when the pallet fork is installed I cant move the wheels "using the crown in the setting position" Really in truly my number 3 was redundant and badly written (trying to explain myself went all wrong). I dismantling partially the watch (calendar, remontoir, Balance and Pallet fork). I think I would need to go that way...  Thanks for your comments...    
    • this is what happens if you don't fully do all of your research. I found the safe answer I found your exact caliber we got a mainspring number we got a price at a decent price for the original spring verified that the spring number at least on bestfit agrees with what we have so it was safe yes I did look in the GR catalog I had seen that 200 watch has a spring similar to what you perceive it should be. But to be honest I never looked at the 200 watch to see what its mainspring was. then the other amusement I went back to the bestfit online because if the 200 have the same spring I were to see that when I snipped out the image up above. Turns out they don't even show a 200 listing at all.  
    • Hi Fernando,   When the patter fork is installed you cannot move the train  as it’s locked by the pallet. And it yo7 can’t move the train with ths pallet fork a balance you have a problem. With the train installed and a couple of turn# on the mainspring the train should move freely. Ok can only suggest dismantling the watch and reassembling it again checking each stage as you complete it  start with mainspring and train wheels, always checking the train freedom.  When assembling the keyless work make sure the right screws are in the right places.   If you look on cousins uk web site and look in document down loads you 2ill be able to find and print the technical sheet for this movement eta 2790.
