Automatic mainspring slipping end repair

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want ot show you my way to repair broken slipping end of the automatic mainspring. 

1. Firstly I drilled mainspring and slipping end with 0,3mm driller.

2. I made the rivet

3. Mainspring and end riveted

6. Mainspring installed in barrel

7. Completed. I have checked if it works well. I have 9 full turns of arbor before mainspring starts to slip at the barrel wall. I think it is quite good. Some service manual says that 8,5 turns is a good result.

What do you think - is it good way to repair this malfunction?
