    Power pegging credit?

    I'll raid the scullery for skewers before the next job. I'm amazed at the amount of extra crud that can be removed.

    Urgos 32/1a

    I think you are right, Dick. I did get a quote for a new movement, but that was a bit too expensive, once the US$ was converted to AU$. I'll fix it by replacing bushings as required.

    Urgos 32/1a

    The anchor looks like a slip fit auto adjusting type. Pulling the pendulum high and letting it go should result in an even beat. The friction clutch attached to the pendulum hanger and anchor arbour has very little friction at the range of auto beat. It's fine the rest of the way around. I...

    Urgos 32/1a

    Thanks for the replies. I am not familiar with "manually ajustable clutch" ,"slip fit", or "auto beat mechanism". I'll take it apart over the weekend and post findings back here.

    Urgos 32/1a

    How does one tighten the friction coupling from the pendulum to the anchor arbor. This one is a bit loose, keeps going out of beat.

    Broach handles

    You can buy these dowels in packs from the hardware store. Measure the square end of the broach and drill a hole in the end of the dowel one number size less than the square size. Grip the broach with some pliers up by the square end and push home. The dowels are slightly fluted and grip well.

    Huber Uhren - Captive Center Arbor

    Going back to the centre arbour, I have in the past, tightened a small say MT1 drill chuck onto it, supported the other side and tap on the end of the chuck. It should separate very easily.

    Horolovar Pallet Setting Tool?

    I used 1mm Aluminium sheet. I sketched up the handle using these dimensions. They seemed to work ok. When you used the tool did you slide it between the escape wheel and the plate or on the inside and view through peep holes?

    Horolovar Pallet Setting Tool?

    Eric, there's one more dimension that would make life easier. It looks like the big end has a radius on it. If you could lay a rule across the bottom tabs and then measure to the bottom.

    Horolovar Pallet Setting Tool?

    Yes Harry, It looks like Aluminium and that's what I'll be using. I'm going to try for some 3.00 x .5 screws, which will give a handy 1/2 mm per turn.

    Horolovar Pallet Setting Tool?

    Thanks for the comprehensive and detailed measurements. I have got the materials together and am ready to start the build. The closest screw I had is 6-32 which will give about .8mm per turn. I couldn't get a 3.5 x .6, but I think .8 will be ok.
