    Hi Dr.Jon If you watch the second picture you can see that the b8 tool has the disks which are converging and I guess that no material is allowed between them. ----- Hi motormaker, Riveting tooling? Can you please give some more details on how the instruments work. Warmest regards. Carlo

    Old wine in new bottle...fitted with Robin remontoir

    Thank you for your kind words My apologies, but I do not understand. The use of a remontoire in a "clock" is not a "need" but an addition to try to get better performances, not working order. Sorry but I must admit that for me it is not clear what you are speaking about. In this clock the...

    French Clock count wheel with pins

    Just joking! Just joking! In this case I should see on the plate of the movement an evidence of the bell support :).... I guess the pins are too small to operate an hammer.

    French Clock count wheel with pins

    It is the first time that it happens to me to see a count wheel of a French movement fitted with very small pins. To be sincere I didn't see these pins when I dismantled the movement and later I discovered that likely I bent a couple of them. The arrows show just 3 of them ( which...
