really new to clock repair. I have an old clock that i decided to give a go on and take apart clean, oil etc. Well thanks to lots of pics and utube videos i was able to take apart, clean and get back together. Took a long time but I really enjoyed doing it. But i have one concern before i put it back in the case. It has two master springs. On one of them, it slipped a couple different times when i was winding.... meaning the click decided to not catch all of a sudden. There is a wire loop that comes around the wheel and rests against the click. I pushed on it and seems better. But it scares me to think i could be winding and then all of a sudden that click lets go. Was the wire just bent out of shape and pushing in on it should do the trick? Do I need to reshape the wire? If so how would i do that? or is there something else i should be doing? Thanks so much for any advice.
