Accutron repair AHA! moment.

Recommended Posts

I've been servicing Accutrons for some time now. But yesterday I just had an AHA! moment.

When phasing the 214, I had been using the power from my Accutron 700 test meter to supply voltage to the watch. I would clip one lead to the ground strap and used one hand to press the positive lead to the battery terminal. This leaves only one hand to adjust the pawl finger.

I was thinking of a way to make a battery clip hold the battery in place to make this procedure easier. Then it hit me....

All I needed to do was to flip the ground strap upside-down and use it as a battery clip!20220410_115832.thumb.jpg.a8d69ab5720e1aeb9b6cc006490186c5.jpg
