Does the palate fork Snap back and forth with the balance out? Have you tried running the motion works without the palate fork in to see if the power releases properly. Have you checked the cap stones for damage. The the impulse jewel loose? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
Pallet jewels and oiled with Mobeus 9415 with dip type Oiler. Balance jewels with 9010. Here are some pics of the pivot jewel and cap jewel under no power. I believe the pivot jewel is wrong for the movement and has too much play, I.e. it is too high leaving the staff shoulders too much room to move up and down. That would make it feel as if it were moving side to side when in actuality it is moving up and down. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
Just wanted to say hello (a newbie to this forum). I got started with this new hobby in November, took Mark's course levels1 and 2, plus the TimeZone course, levels 1 and 2, and am hooked. Fortunately I live near Otto Frei making getting parts, supplies, and tools a breeze. I look forward to participating with you all in this horological journey.
