I was recently gifted a Gustav Becker wall regulator, circa 1895. The major issue appears to be that the mechanism (as opposed to strike) arbor turns without tightening. When the arbor is turned, the ratchet engages but the spring barrel housing rotates freely as does the engaged cam on the gear wheel (the cam turns freely without turning the larger gear wheel). I suspect that the gear wheel cam should lock somehow to allow spring to tighten. Comments?
