Strange I have two Fema clock movements to repair, both with broken mainsprings and one with a broken click spring, can you please tell me, are the click springs readily available???has anyone bought one, if so where from?
Photo attached of good click spring, this is the type that I need..
Hope you are all well..
Does anyone have a source for the two - ended shock springs for a 7s26 movement. My is in the Netherlands. Not the three lobed DiaShock , but the cheaper two-ended. I cannot locate them on Cousins or Ofrei. Sieko "hold spring" P# 0015703
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.
Great proposition and still practicable for a 20 pounds tweezers or 50 for a screwdrivers mini-set, then things change when you face that a Swiss timegrapher starts at 2,500 but a Chinese one 200 or less, the relation gets a bit better like 4 to 1 in case of bench case opener, crystal press and die set, pressure tester, etc.
You will find and evaluate by yourself in the due time, plenty of full discussion threads, check the pinned and starred threads in the tools section.
Thanks guys, I totally get the quality tools thing as I come from an engineering background where good tools last a lifetime. Looking forward to using the forum and getting to know everyone. Have a great day wherever you are
Here you have a walkthrough of a 2451 (Seiko Silverwave diver from 1964) and a 6601 (1964 and all that: Part II) which I think it's about the same thing according to the part list. Maybe they are not very detailed in every step, but may help you.
