  My new bench cane with a lathe but the counter shaft has 2 broken wheels on it.  Does anyone know where I could get replacements? Shaft is 6.75mm wheels are 102mm and 50mm.  Wheels are 8.45mm thick.  Lathe is a Moseley.

  What is the round thing with the trap door?

possibly connected to a foot pedal that would then come through those holes to turn the countershaft to then turn the lathe.... that was a pure guess.

Thanks for your response. The holes for that are in front and behind the circle thing just out of the photos.  I would guess something to help splice the belt but I don't know how that would work.  I do have the foot pedal.

I don't think you can find specific parts for such a vintage machinery, but welding and remachining should be an option. These are no much precision parts anyway.

    • From the fact that the repeater is operated from a push button and not a slide I would say this is a LePhare movement. These were the "Timex" of complications in the day, the mechanisms were simplified to enable something resembling mass production, and the overall fit and finish of things aren't close to what might have come from the Vallee de Joux (AP, JLC, Patek, etc.). That said, it is still an interesting watch- just not worth the same as the higher end makes.
    • Or after watch Kalle's video do you just stop cleaning watches in the US cleaner if they are made from thin Aluminium sheet 😉 Paul
    • Hello, I got an old Orient Deluxe with an Orient 4951 movement in it. I tried to look on the web for technical documentation on this movement but I could not find anything. Please if you have any technical doc that will help me a lot in my project. Thanks in advance
    • Thank you everyone for your input. It is very informative. I haven’t actually tried yet to adjust the beat error closer to the zero reading because the watch is running so accurate at the moment. It has now been five days and the watch has only lost 14 seconds to date. Can I ask another question then please. If the watch is running so accurately (in my opinion) what is the benefit in trying to get the beat error back to zero on the time grapher. Will it damage anything if left as it is? Thanks again all for your responses
    • Is Kalle saying not to clean watch parts in that type of (powerful) ultrasonic, or not to clean them with ultrasonic at all? All high end professional watch cleaning machines have been ultrasonic, with or without agitation, since the '60s. I've have never, ever, had an issue from ultrasonic on watch parts.
