I believe it is man made and somehow it escaped from a laboratory, which creates germ warfare. The city that it escaped, which is Wuhan as we all know is in China. So you know who I blame.

So easy to be misunderstood here!. I should have written clearly: I don't think that allowing the tube crowding linked above was good at all. Now I read that the UK is in lockdown also, better late than never.

Actually scientific censuses is actually telling otherwise https://www.vox.com/2020/3/4/21156607/how-did-the-coronavirus-get-started-china-wuhan-lab

that it is is generally benign to youth is something that can't be denied

UK statistics released today show that 5% of the patients in critical care (on ventilators or in high dependency units) are under 30 years old. Not a big percentage, but hugely significant to anyone who finds themselves in that 5%.

average age of the deceased is above 75 yrs

The same statistics show that the average age of those in critical care is 62 years old.

Granted these are figures for people in critical care, not fatalities, but that is still a place that nobody wants to go.

Thankfully we seem to have finally put the right measures in place. I just hope that it's not too little too late.

    • I cleaned it by soaking in Home Depot naptha and pegging by hand, 2 rinses. Demagnetized the whole thing, as well. I'll dig back in with both suggestions and report back any findings. Enjoying the process.
    • also;  there several books on the internet on that subject.  good luck.  vin
    • Always hard so make a guess... Anyway, I think the problem is on the dial side, i.e. the dial train (cannon pinion, minute wheel, hour wheel, intermediate wheel). Could it be that the clutch wheel doesn't disengage properly from the intermediate wheel that drives the minute wheel when you set the time? If so the intermediate wheel may bind up the minute wheel making things slow down and then stop. Well, just guessing. Anyway, I'd check the dial train (motion works) and the keyless works. I think your idea of removing the cannon pinion to see if it solves the problem is a good idea. If it doesn't help you'll know for sure the problem is with the train of wheels or the escapement. Good luck and let us know of any progress or any new observations.
    • This was really fascinating, but I couldn’t hear sound, do I have a fault at my end? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Hi  The difficult bit is removing the staff without bending the balance rim  hence the use of the Platax tool and the K&D tools to hold the balance flat. Some watch makers put the broken balance in a lathe and cut the rivit off, which is a skilled job so as not to mess up the balance hub.  I have in the past done it using a stake and a set of punches and was succesfull.  The K&D tools come up on the bay from time to time as do Platax tools who command a price greater than £250 the K&K s  go for arround the £50 mark.  I would reccomend that before embarking on this journey that you watch Mark our Hosts videos on UTube  and then decide on the course of action to take.     Hope all this is useful for you.   cheers
