    Default Re: Lancashire watch co front set arbor and wind pw? (By: Tom McIntyre)

    Hi Tom,

    If you mean the fusee arbor itself, then extending that to enable front winding is non-trivial, and where a watch has been converted or re-cased, necessitating the arbor square to be at the other end, the whole fusee was typically replaced. Extracting the arbor from a fusee cone is practically impossible without destroying it. Fusees with a square at both ends were available from materials houses, the unwanted end was simply cut back to form a normal pivot. Better as Ray says, to start with a front-winding verge in the first place.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Ray
    Only measurements I need would be distance between wind arbor and set
    Nut . The time will work anyway it is tightened into the clips(3) and place for a fourth
    Oh and double check on the 43.3mm movement front plate size
    Does that sound correct since there is no hinge ?

    Sorry learning
    If it isn't plastic then it is ivory, here that would not be a problem selling it as it is clearly old enough, but as you say well worth keeping anyway.
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.

    Hi Roboman, sounds OK, but the thickness of the movement will be different; you may have to make New holding Clips? Regards Ray
