    Hi all
    I am after a mainspring barrel for a standard Koma and it takes a 20X38 spring as my one is split and distorted around the outer retainer the only trouble is I am in the UK so if anyone has one they would be up to selling and posting to UK that would be great.
    My other thought is I know some parts a interchangeable from other makes but I don’t know if any mainspring barrels are, if anyone knows if they are and what model I may find one.
    Many thanks in advance Dell

    I apologise profusely that it’s taken me over a year to respond. I just saw the threads. The second photo is a cardboard cut out of original Junghans hands and the bits of offcuts from Ansonia hands.

    the crack expanding from the barrel hook realy is dangerous ; it could let free the hook with the mainspring fully wound up ending in the well known desaster with broken teeth,bent arbours and pivots etc. But -only in case You cannot get a spare barrel- You could make a new hook in an intact part of the barrel. AFAIK John Hubby posted a detailed description of how to do this a couple of years ago,maybe You find that tutorial on the MB.
    All the best and Merry Christmas!

    Hi Burkhard
    Yes I have seen a barrel where the hook has let go and seen what damage it can do, that’s why I want to replace it, but if I can’t get a replacement then I aim to silver solder the split and fit a new one 180’
    Merry Christmas Dell
