I meant the wheel that meshes with the escape wheel I was so frustrated when I made that comment didn't think of the terminology (not that I know what it's called any way).
I have another spare movement coming my way hopefully I can get it right this time
So, I'm flush with money in my PayPal account so I went on a bit of an eBay shopping spree. I picked up 4 watches. 3 are Russian and one is a Seiko. I know it's not very original, but I got the exact same 2 Russian's that Mark recently featured on his YouTube channel. I've been wanting a couple Russians for awhile and was hesitant to pull the trigger. I liked the ones Mark chose and found 2 identical models for a reasonable price. The third Russian has this really cool embossed/engraved dial that I've never seen on a Russian so I had to grab it. And finally the Seiko. It is a vintage Bell-Matic with a silver dial in good shape. It has an original bracelet with the tank tread style links. I've had my eye on a mechanical alarm watch and I'm excited for this one.
Had you not lubricated the escapement at all? You should lubricate the impulse faces of the pallet stones, this will go on the teeth of the escape wheel and get spread to the locking faces and across all teeth evenly after running for a while. You can use 9010, or 941 (advised by Moebius for slower beat watches i.e. 18,000bph), or 9415, which is suggested for faster beat watches but works great for slow beat as well. But you need lubrication there for sure. Don't oil the pallet fork pivots.
