Hi there, I just received my new (to me) poising tool. I'm in the process of giving it a service ,bit need help finding a new ruby jaw. There is a small chip in one of the existing jaws, see below.

Completely my fault I didn't spot this in the auction posting, but wondering where I could find a replacement jaw... Other than finding a donor on ebay. I tried CousinsUK, but they only have the Bergeon version not this older H&R version. Pictures

Hi,

Sorry, no such things as replacement jaws. They are grinded and polished together as a couple and the way of replacement is the same - glueing, grinding and polishing. If no other chips anywhere on the jaws, the tool still can be used as normal, just avoid this exact position where the chip is.

I was thinking maybe of attaching a razor blade to the inside of the jaw, but only if there isn't enough of the good jewel to work with.

Haha i was just about to suggest that, ruins its asthetics somewhat. I was going to makel one with 2 razor blades until i got one like yours.

    • Its a big item Michael and a lot that could go wrong with the process of getting it to its new location. I once helped install one of these units into a conservatory that i had built. It was big and bloody heavy and took six of us to get it in safely. If you have sliding doors and you need to remove the whole frame then that may or may not go well. But i would advise getting a professional in if you have little knowledge on the installation of them. The glazing of the doors could well be 6mm laminated glass which again will be heavy very heavy if the glazing units are big. The glass would also need to be set up and packed correctly to open the doors properly more so if they are unframed and the sliders are upvc. Seems a shame but if no one is biting and that may be due to having no warranty i guess the only takers might be someone that installs them for a living and knows how to repair. If its fibreglass just be careful, i sometimes have to cut fibreglass baths out and they are nasty to work with . Thick gloves are definitely recommended,ย  not fun picking out fibreglass spells two days later that have started to go septic. Good luck with it all matey.
    • I donโ€™t know anything about this product, however assuming you have it if you put a drop on a mirror or piece of glass lying flat on a table and leave it to evaporate if it leaves any sort of residue it is not really suitable for watch part cleaning. ย  Tom
    • Well I put the spa on Gumtree (selling service) to try and sell it as it only needs a recirc pump to get it going. However, it weighs circa 250kg, so there's 4 fairly strong guys, and I would have to remove the sliding door in the room completely to be able to get it out, as well as clearing out a multitude of potted plants and the Alfresco outdoor setting to be able to get it out. Then move nearly everything in the back of the garage to be able to push it through to the front of the house. I would also need to hire furniture skates to be able to shift it around as carrying it is out of the question. Then someone would need a trailer to get it to their place as you won't get it on the back of a ute. So, the only answer is, out with the reciprocating saw and cut it all up into manageable pieces. Crying shame as it is in really good nick. I was only asking $1,500 and only got two bites, but it would only take something to go wrong with removing the sliding door etc that everything I make on the sale could go out the door on repairs etc. It would have been nice to be able to turn it into tools etc, but que sera sera. I don't know about the rest of the world, but there just seems to be very little interest from people wanting to buy things secondhand. ย 
    • I would like to see the movement.ย The watch is the movement. Anyone can print a name on a dial and sell it as "the maker".
    • Thanks for your answers! There seems to be a contradiction between these two answers, so perhaps I need to clarify. The flat and convex jewels look identical on the side facing away from the pivot shoulder. That is, there is an oil reservoir. I don't know if that changes anything but I thought it was safest to clarify since I didn't include a picture of the jewels from the opposite side.
