    40" granddaughter , movement type?

    I both this case only to fix for my daughter. The fix would be a movement. . Any idea of maker so I can start looking for correct one. If I can't find one that goes to it I'm sure I could put a few different movements in it. It's time only with a 3 ¾ drop to winding arbor

    I'm starting to get all that. I have known about magnetism and have a demagnitizer. It was obvious the thickness and the width of the copper India ones and the one Willie suggested out from a Hermle much thinner And that one is running really close. My frustration is you can't get any...

    I have it darn close minutes fast am hour instead of double time+. My question is why can't you get a wide variety of hairsprings. I'm positive of I had a wider selection of different thicknesses and lengths I could get this running. Willie pointed me in the right direction with the hermle...

    Did you not tell me the hermle spring runs at 9000 bph? 8880 is damn close and the Sligh does need cleaned that's next. Randomly stopping so yes its possibly running a little slow. I think you should check it out before getting down on it. Clock tuner on playstore, you have to pay $5 for the...

    Curiosity drove me to test it on another clock. Sligh mantel clock that has a hermle escapement. I believe you said should be at 9000 bph. My app read 8870 Pretty close

    Ok I hear you. But just for the heck of it I had a spare hermle balance assembly and took the spring off put it on this and it dropped the bph by 10,000 Was 25k+ bph Now 14,700 bph with app

    It gives what the rate is not what it should be

    Can you explain a little more about the fork position. I took it apart cleaned it. There's nothing that needs to be done like bushings. I didn't mess with the fork and there's no adjustment that can be made with it. I'm sitting here looking at another balance wheel and it only rotate s about...

    Understand have an app that gives you that. Figuring if it was running twice as fast or close would give me an approximate on what it should run. Just something I could check at this second. I just read some of yours and others comments on figuring out the bph I'll count the teeth...

    So I just ran the beats per hour and it's running just above 24,000 bph.

    I've been reading a lot and kinda thought that if out of balance or not vibrated right wouldn't run. I guess I'm wrong on that. I just don't get how it could speed out as much as it is. I just checked it and it gained a few hours in an hour. Not skipping teeth just going fast as hell. I've...

    Thanks. I found one in a similar structured Waterbury. Still running pretty damn fast. Hard to understand really. No problem getting it running. Here's the links to the videos Still running fast after putting in Waterbury hairspring. No teeth skipping

    Japanese mainspring

    I was just going to ask if the hairspring would be the culprit. I've replaced a few hairsprings including one on my Chelsea car clock. Someone obviously put the one that was in it before I changed it because it was the same copper ones I have. The assorted ones you get from Timesavers are...
