Fusee problem

Not that deep. If you want the easy way I would fill it with silver solder, soft solder will wear out in no time. Make sure you burnish it and the inside of the hole. The best way would be to make the whole steel piece, but you need a lathe and mill but you could do it with just a lathe. Depends on your skills.

ill go with the easy way to start with, my mentor suggested to file it down, i think just to test my skills further. 

Although the amount of pivots I've filed and burnished with him I'm quite adept at it now. ill let you know how i get on. many thanks

The photo looks to me like that pivot may have been gripped in a vice before. I've seen that many times. Sometimes they end up ovalised as a result (you can feel it as you rotate the arbor on the lathe).

Sorted this pivot, had to file it down by quite some way but there’s still enough meat left for the size of the pivot.
Obviously I had to bush the hole, and before anyone says it looks abit rough this a before the finished burnished pivot shot3AA09491-DEF8-45B6-B6B1-AF1DB485D572.thumb.jpeg.6046d50ba7996ebf18addd5f52e6272d.jpeg

Just looked at the original photo and that is a lot of steel removed. It looks sturdy enough and I would say it will be fine. The fusee cone takes a hell of a lot of pressure.
