Jeremy,

Yes I can help you get the calendar together but it's already past midnight here in Brooklyn. I'll give you my directions tomorrow. I don't have pictures of the BFG 856, but have plenty of the 866 which is similar. More to come....

Thank you soo much noirrac1j. I finished it. Had some trouble with the spring shooting across the room. Found it about half an hour later with a giant magnet. Used peg wood to make sure it didn't fly off the next go around. You rock!  could not have done it with out the detailed photos. Here it is complete.

You did it already? That's fantastic! I will suggest for next time never, ever remove or install a spring without first placing cling/saran wrap onto it to hold in place--no matter how nice it looks! It looks great and kudos to you for perseverance!

Very well explained noirrac1j .. often it is better to use a video camera and film everything. It is always easier to do the reassembly afterwards. I already learned it at my own expense ;)

 

Yes I agree. I might invest in a camera with digital microscope soon.

    • Thanks for the info. The Rodeo is remarkably similar to this. https://www.uhrwerksarchiv.de/movements/c/crc/crc-960/ .. but perhaps is closer to this. https://17jewels.info/movements/c/crc/crc-860/   It has the cruder balance, but a different "shock" spring arrangement as opposed to what looks suspiciously like glue on the example here.  The "LiJac" is certainly from the same stable, but even simpler in its construction.
    • Well I won't try until I've sorted all the other problems out. If its too difficult I might try making a tool or perhaps purchasing the chinese version. Thanks for your assistance .
    • That's what I was saying. That ring holds the bearing to the rotor. Try putting that ring back. I think you'll find it very difficult.
    • Hi all, was just wondering what was the very first proper watch other forum members ever owned? In my case it was a Nidor Vibraflex 17 jewel manual wind, that my nan bought me in 1966. Hopefully one will pop up on eBay as I have lost the original ! 
    • I usually get to tinker with it later on when it’s dark. I just bought two 15W cool light - light bulbs for the room, it helps a little but it’s not great, it’s too high in the ceiling. Ideally I could do with something behind me (from the side) and fairly close to cancel the shadows but having a floor lamp would be very awkward. Ideally I’d like something I could put on the desk, sort of a spot light that’s powerful and I could move about and direct the light where I need it.
