    Could use advice on Schatz cuckoo in the case adjustments

    I agree with Willie X. I would ask if you used the old bellows did you ensure you placed it in the same spot it was removed form? The bellows will only open so far so if they were installed lower than originally placed the lever will not be able to lift the bellows far enough to allow the tail...

    Cannon Pinion Repair

    I hammer the solder on an anvil until it is less than paper thin than it's ready to use. That's my opinion, but I could be wrong. breeze
