Checking end and side shakes

Question

I’m having difficulty checking end and side shakes on the third wheel – to be more precise, I can’t get to it!
Any tips how to check wheels that are well hidden under bridges?

Once again Old Hippy is on the money, when re-assembling the movement check each wheel on its own as old Hippy stated, there is nothing to interfear with your inspection . Once checked and you are happy with the results re assemble the watch. But when checking screw the bridge down as it would normaly be in the watch

check each as old hippy said but end shakes on a 3rd wheel allow a lot more play than lets say a balance or escape. you can get away with too much end shake and not loose much amplitude, too little will def not work though and will def result in a very low amp and or stop the movement. train wheels being loose is always better than too tight in my opinion
