Safety Pinions

Recommended Posts

Just found out how a safety pinion works when I released the mainspring and it still had power that I thought was dissipated. BOOM! The pocket watch blew up and the Center wheel, 2nd, was spinning. Thought I screwed it up as the smaller gear was riding high on the pinion and no longer seemed right. Turns out they are threaded in the opposite direction and this takes the force from the mainspring.b05bdb6769b455264bec6e85dd3c9e85.jpg8f478d0b367fe7269bd24b6244dc0080.jpg
