As the saying goes: "Where can I find a watch repairer?" "Under the table of course!"

I'm no Timex wizard but I have done enough of them to understand your suffering. I usually remove the v conic screw completely, tilt the balance and get the pivot into the hole. The ease it through the hole as far as it can go, then there should be enough space to get the other pivot into the v conic cup. Remember to oil the cup first. Then put a drop of oil into the cup of the brass screw and turn it down slowly over the other pivot. Now adjust the endshake until you have minimal sideshake. Avoid over tightening it as the pivot can be damaged. Getting the hairspring into the hole of the regulator arm and stud hole is another adventure. I'll let you figure it out first...
