Bought A Staking Set Yesterday


Recommended Posts

Looks like a top notch staking set you bagged yourself there, just hope it don't arrive like mine did..

Ouch. That sucks. I just emailed the seller, who is supposed to be shipping today, to ask him to package the items securely.


Thanks, SSTEEL.

In the uk it is against consumer law to put a customer in a worse position than he was before the purchase. Ie they HAVE to refund postage.


Except this was probably an auction and so consumer law does not apply.

Thanks, Clockboy. You mean the two smallest holes in the anvil are blocked?


After seeing SSTEEL's picture, I emailed the seller and requested that they pack mine securely. Not only did they do that, they marked each row of stakes separately so I could put them back exactly where they were. They also found 20 or 30 "bonus" parts that had been stuck behind the wood things that the stakes fit into and sent them along. Can't say enough good things about this seller.

@Don: Nice set Don, and great choice since you will have plenty of new spares when you need them! Congratulations!


@Micky: That was terrible Micky, I hope you sorted it out in the end. Did you have to replace the damaged parts, meaning, was there a way to fix them at all?

    • It's pronounced "bombay" like the city.  French for bomb is, 😄, bombe, pronounced the same as in English. Bombé, bombe.
    • That's a really good idea! I have a 3d printer, I think I'll design something that I can clip on to the edge of my desk to do the same. Thanks for the idea. 
    • I looked up bombè, domed in French.  It's pronunciation is bomb, does a bomb (explosive device) get It's name from bombè? I know we're going off subject but it's interesting. 
    • Okay, I checked with the fine folks at the McCaw Company, and they agree it's the correct crystal, and they have one in stock, so with that sorted time to get onto assembly. Starting by getting the spring into the barrel, which was a bit harrowing. It took me several tries to get it hooked onto my worn old winder arbor, but I did find a new use for the micrometer stand I just purchased. Carefully dabbed some Kluber P125 braking grease to the left of the divots around the barrel, and a little HP1300 on the floor of the barrel before popping it in--in case you haven't seen it, this is a great illustration I found somewhere on this site. You're not the boss of me, Bulova.   2172_Bulova 11AOAC 11AOACD 11AOACB.pdf Bulova_11 AOAC, D, B(1).pdf I got the train back in and it didn't seem as free as I'd like. Looks like the driving wheel with cannon pinion has zero end shake. That could explain the low amplitutde I started with. Now if you were me, would you push on the plate jewel or the bridge jewel? I've attached some extra pictures in case anyone sees something else I'm doing wrong here.
    • I have quite a few watch brands from all over the world. For some reason this Timex electric from 1979 is capturing my attention this week. I am not a particularly fond of battery operated watches or Timex, but this one is different for some reason. Post your watch in your collection that seems to draw you in more now than before...
