    Here is a hard to find tool. I have wanted on for years (still looking for a larger more complex version). Even though this is a simple version it was great to find it in a bag 'o bits that had been floating around the workshop for a long time.:eek: 84665.jpg

    Ray, I think you are going to have to show me what it is/does. I know I don't have one in my shop, and I'm not sure I miss it:rolleyes:

    Hi
    You seem to be missing the pin for the push rod.
    You'll need to replace that before the next time
    you use it.

    I found it in a bag of parts in which someone had put some patination solution. Everything was green, I cleaned it off for a quick pic. Lots of restoration to do.
    Obviously it needs a handle, cutter and pin.
    These are hard to find. Ralph probably has 3............
    This one is for the watch guys, too small for my work. I would like a clock version.
    Given your specialty Harold you will never need one of these but you do use a part with an almost identical name.

    Close, Tinker.

    A fusée engine. I used to have a homemade one that attached to my lathe, but this is much prettier.

    Ahhrgh.... you stole Ray's thunder.. ;)

    Here's a sweet medium sized Lonodn made engine. While suitable for making small clock fusees (both standard and reverse), this style of engine was also used for grooving helical balance spring formers and other duties where precise pitches were necessary.

    It was on display at our Midwest Regional a couple of years ago.


    Ray will need one of these to go with his fusees... a setup tool.

    He probably has a few in his tool stash.
