Bergeon 4509 silicon 7

Recommended Posts

I bought some Bergeon silicon 7 to put in my grease container for gaskets.

 

How much of the silicone should I remove from the bergeon container onto the foam pad (I think it is a 5 gram container of grease)?

 

If I remove it all from the Bergeon container and put it in the foam will it store OK?

 

This grease is pretty expensive so just want to check before I make a mistake.

I'm not sure how much you need on the foam pad to grease the gasket sufficiently, so was wondering if there is some left over on the foam it will be OK to use next time. So if that was the case I could just empty it.

Basically I don't really know how to use the product with the foam pad, so just wanted to check as it's expensive.

There should always be some left over on the foam, you should be able to grease about ten thousand gaskets before needed to add grease. (Slight exaggeration, but it lasts a long time.) When you find that gaskets are coming out too dry for your liking, add some, maybe the size of a green pea, and spread it around on one of the foam sponges. If you put tons you might saturate the foam and the gaskets come out with way too much.

    • If you are set up, a video replayed slow, would reveal what is going on. If you are thinking, Pallet jewel position a hairy edge, you can  lower or raise the escape wheel. I keep in mind, the fork interfaces functionally at both ends, pallets and horn. , if it is happy at impulse jewel side, I wouldn,t touch the fork. Good luck Pal.
    • Welcome!  I think you will enjoy the forum.  I know I have!
    • eBay has a plethora os movements, with case still attached, for next to nothing.  Horological schools usually recommend a particular movement for class work and practice.  However, if you simply want to pull it apart to see how it works and then try to put it back together, buy anything that ticks.  You can pick up a “dollar watch”, times, etc or other vintage unmarked movements for next to nothing.  Seeing things move together is far more important, IMHO, than a specific movement. do be careful!  You may spark a new expensive hobby! :-) cheers from Texas John Allen
    • Cleaned, de-maged and checked h/s for stickyness. Nothing to be observed from that. Did another test you may comment on. With balance removed, I gently nudged the pallet fork side to side to start the release-lock operation. At a couple of close to each other positions on the escape wheel circumference this is not functioning as I believe it should. It all happens fast and is hard to observe but I think there is a ”skip over” where the locking doesn’t happen as it should but locking is happening on the next tooth. As escapement teeth look decent, could this be a case of pallet jewel position on the hairy edge? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
    • Another Timex today. This time a 1974 model/caliber 25 based, 23550 02574 - "possibly a Marlin" but the experts will no doubt be better placed to give me an exact model. This arrived unable to wind or set, which was down to a broken wind/set rocking bar. A suitable replacement was extracted from a donor movement, and after a quick service and polish, and a fresh crystal this is the result. Another very 1970s curly font black and white dial.  Clean and readable and running well.
