• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    English 1939 Fusee Pendulum Length

    If you accept this job that the customer will not pay for it makes YOU look bad if it fails to work properly. The customer will tell others that "Joe Blow" worked on it and now it will not run.

    Hermle 340-020 floating balance adjustment

    To Elliott Wolin--appreciate you coming forth about oiling the floating balance. I, too, always use a good grade of synthetic watch oil on them.. And I usually put them in my US cleaner. If the US cleaner does not harm a watch hairspring I think a floating bal spring would survive.

    Hermle 340-020 floating balance adjustment

    Mr. Lawson, You do not have to let the power down to remove the balance. With the bal whl out, the mechanism will not run. May I ask how much rotation you are getting on the balance wheel? With the clock fully wound the bal. should rotate at least 270 degrees. If not, you are probably...

    Loose hands on a New Haven Triple plate

    Your video shows hands that appear to be spring loaded to go counter wise. You did not indicate whether it will tick. The video was far to short and it may need to show more of the movement. I think you may have something assembled wrong.

    Seth Thomas A206-011Timing

    Mr. Gruber, My research tells me that it is indeed a Hermle. A 130-020 with 10,800 BPH. The rate adjuster is on the top of the balance wheel.

    Complete service to a Hermle but it is losing power and running too fast

    Why don't you have the caps over the Pallet Fork pivots? The depthing of the PF into the floating bal. is critical.

    HWN/Hawina BPH?

    I may be wrong but I think the upper wheel on T2 serves the same purpose as it would if on the center wheel arbor. So it is 48 x 68/8 x 40/8 x 2 =261120/64 = 4080 BPH To go farther find BPM square that and divide that number into a constant of 141120. 4080/60 = 68 BPM. 68 squared is 4624...

    HWN/Hawina BPH?

    Jeffg, I think your BPH is going to be 4080. That works out to be a pendulum of approximately 30.5 inches.

    Herschede Cracked Tubes

    In post number 4, I think Mr. Feldman is referring to laser welding. Laser welding can be used very successfully for this application because there is very little heat generated, thus no distortion. Drilling a tiny hole at the end of the crack is very important to keep the crack from growing...
