No its not me, although I've been called one a few times. Today's tool is in fact this ⬇️⬇️. It has one purpose and its purpose can be achieved with many other tools. Of which i have a few, but like many tasks in watch repair there are many ways to cook an egg. And its advantageous to have some of these extra tools in your arsenal to try more than one way. Its not a difficult guess so no pros please, if you know you know dont spoil the fun of the puzzle, just say i know what it is.  One little clue it obviously does the same task as the other tools but in a different more controlled way and not necessarily better just different. Different folk will have different views on that . Oh and I'm hiding part of it because that might give it away too quickly.

Aye sir it is indeed. I took a risk as it looked a bit pants on the sellers photo and i thought it might be cheap chinese but there were other items that boosted the sale. It is made by the Farco tool company so it is actually cheap Italian 🤣.  Chill amici joke. The quality isn't bad at all .

Well I never? I was half right was I not? Insertion tool ...ish. 

Good this game innit?

By the way Neverenough. Don't know if you have realised. I was a lookalike for Bruce. Lived too far from London to make it profitable for the tv company. Ah well.

You were getting warm Ross the main clue was covered, it was just the way you said it had a certain connotation 😄. I can see the similarity and I'm convinced you have the same charm. 😉

Wow, neverenoughwatches, what on earth is it, and where on earth did you find it? That thing... how big is it?  I am with all the other guesses, but what about that needle - like top? Probably the whole thing is not even really a watch tool at all.  Maybe it's just me, but is it perverse?

If the entire mystery has yet to be solved, then the "insertion" part.... does it blow up the little rubber balls for case back removal, and you are hiding the air tube? Or is it for making those tiny holes in eggs when you want to boil them?

Can you reveal the missing part yet? Did you already and I missed it (still early here)?

Also -  a caliper, a hand inserter, a mainspring winder?  Tattoo gun?

Haha you are so hyper 😄. The needle was covered as i thought it was a dead give away. As it happens without it shown it could have been a number of things. Its for redenting a canon pinion that has become loose. If you look on the outside of a cannon pinion you will see a small indent, look inside and you will see the indent protrude ( not all cannon pinions ) . This can lose its grip on the center wheel arbour. The tool, the cannon pinion fits over the needle this prevents the cannon pinion from being crushed by the jaws . The needle is also tapered to adjust indent depth. So there you are. A diy suggestion is a pair of nail clippers and a copper wire insert ( i think Nucejoe invented that one 🤷‍♂️ ).

Did I say until I know everything? Oh, no, that was a typo. I meant to say until after breakfast. Thanks for the tool puzzle, it was loads of fun. In general, however, most of these threads go way over my head - so back to my classes.

Hi,  am away studying my watch repair course so am unable to respond to your post. I'll get back to you as soon as I know everything, like you do. Or, until lunch, whichever comes sooner, and lunch is in an hour. Cheers.

You have so many wonderful automated replies, i cant wait to see the toilet break one. An hour up to  lunch should be plenty of time to know as much as i do. I learnt it in half the time 😋.

This response is not automated, you crack me up (that's American for you are sort of funny, lol).

But in the watch realm, what do you call that tool? I cannot imagine I would need one, but... I suppose those who can, do - the rest of us just buy all the gear and stall.

Well. I am up to Part 1.6 now in class, the Watch Movement part. Now I know all about tools (have them all), fluids (ditto), glasses (If deco, have all), crowns (have all kinds), pushers (who needs watches with extra knobs?), and all that stuff. I need a break before this upcoming part (focusing on quality not speed) but I am gaining on you.

You are one swell friend, and I thank you. Don't worry your pretty head about my ability to grasp the information, I am doing just fine. I mean, wait if you like, but I am not slowing down for corners or anything.

Now tell me. Just which tools do you need proof of right now? If you tell me what it is called, and show me a picture, I will produce all of whatever it is.

    • Could you let me know where to get them? I use slotting files, but always on the lookout for alternatives that work. Apologies if I've taken this thread off on a tangent!  I've had the same on my bench, where the escape wheel cap was shellacked into place and it ran pretty damn well, to be honest
    • My currency is BGN (Bulgarian Lev), which is fasten to EUR, so 1EUR = 2BGN I am afraid we have stollen the conversation away from the OP problem...
    • Firstly, everything you see on YouTube isn't the truth! And recommending removing these jewels prior to cleaning is a crock of....... Don't remove the jewels, as it is far from necessary and I would be really surprised if the screws holding them in place came loose or even if they came out of the bridge or mainplate. Just peg the jewels clean and maybe pre-clean the movement prior to putting it through your cleaning machine, if you are using one
    • Haha that was it Nev, we got there in the end 😅 They're brill Nev, 0.2mm diamond disks they work great with my new little milling machine. I paid less than £1 each, what is your currency ?
    • This is the mainspring you need from Gleave and Co. https://gleave.london/search.php?search_query=seiko 7009 mainspring&section=product Fits a treat! Cousins don't sell this, that's why I go to Gleave and Co in Clerkenwell, here in London. @Birbdadyou can manipulate that spring you have already in the barrel to close it up slightly. I've closed up the inner coil in a mainspring a lot bigger than the one your having problems with without having to heat the coil. First get a piece of brass wire or steel rod about half three quarters the size of the barrel arbor. This is placed in the inner coil so you don't crush or kink the inner coil of the spring, then with sturdy tweezers (carbon steel) start pinching the inner coil in various places around the inner coil. Be even in your pinching. It will take about 10 minutes or so, but it will slowly work the inner coil slightly smaller to fit the arbor. You'll be surprised at how much it will close that coil. You can't close it that much, but enough for what you require judging by your photo of the coil and arbor in situ. Take your time and make sure you always use the brass wire to not over do it. Be careful, as @Neverenoughwatcheshas already pointed out, not to scratch up the barrel or arbor hole/bush in the barrel. Very easily done, as it is soft brass. I'm sure you will close it up enough to grip the arbor. I've closed up inner coils much bigger than yours. Make sure you use a rod of steel or brass to stop the tweezers from completely crushing the inner coil. This part is imperative to the process, so don't overlook it, thinking that you will have control to how much your squeezing that coil with your tweezers, because that's where it all starts to go downhill and next thing you've got a fooked mainspring that is no good to man nor beast. Been there, done that, got the T shirt! Let us know how you got on.
