Separate names with a comma.
as a silent reader of this thread, I considered it more than inappropriate to adress Mr. Kieffer like a beginner who does not know how a...
what beat rate did you find in the end?
No. with the values you posted, current will be even less with 3 V.
A certain swing amplitude needs a certain amount of electric energy.
The contact, a wire, is visible here:
You should test the coil here:
It will have several 100 ... 2000 Ohms if ok.
So you will be busy in the near future :)
Good luck and enjoy your clock!
imho reasons for no resistor/no spark protection are:
1. low current clocks get not much harm without one. It is not really needed, but...
Not at all. Seems you used a thinner wire.
the lengthy article in your link tells it all, also points to the disadvantage of diode use.
Ato, Bulle, Brillie have low currents...
Very good spark protection, contact erosion protection and overvoltage protection is achieved by a resistor 220 … 330 ohms instead of a diode...
A Clockette has 10080 bph.
Ok, then lift angle does not matter.
PWs are about 36...42 deg, depends on calibre.
You can use your smartphone like above, then adjust your...
...but amplitude values look muuuch nicer ;)
In my above link some members mentioned staff distortion by rivetting. The widened part must pass the bore when punching out.
Wanting to prove if...
Quite a different topic, it depends. I use it on crown and pusher threads only.
Dewey, I did not only say but also showed why.
I am curious how you value the non existent support of the balance arm around its bore when...
I am surprised that you defend a wrong procedure.
Nor will I. However long time ago I damaged a balance by punching the staff out with an...
Please state diameter of crown and diameter of stem thread.
my bigger (1/2-s) ATO clock has magnetic fine tuning, too:
You are right, and I had similar thoughts when reading.
However sometimes the metal casing of a cell influences the magnetic circuit of the clock,...
In the Bulle that I described recently, I found just a contrary issue: the shaft had extremely much end play.
