    Confused about ordering bushings?

    Hi Shut, I think 2 bushes staket on each other is not a brilliant idee. Where would the oil go? Between the 2 bushes. I think in this case it is better to use bush wire, wich you could cut in the needed length, like we used to do in frisian clocks.

    Help Strike train stalling on French movement

    Welcome Eddy, for what I can see is the bushing for the gathering palet worn out. Is there any bushing work done? Maybe the bushing is to tight.

    Can you go for a less wider spring and somewhat stronger, so the spring is in the barrel. Is the bushing in the barrel oke or worn out? You have only one bushing to keep the barrel straight.

    Kienzie Movement

    Hello, and welcome to this forum. Was the end of the spring worn out or broken off. If it was broken off there could be some problems with teeths or arbors.
