    I was working in the lab late one night, and to my surprise I broke this Herschede gathering pallet (Strike)
    Her2106 or Her22106.
    (The one on the right in the picture)
    Just wondering if somebody might have a hand full of these they might want to part with one.
    Please Lloyd
    Part # from R&M Imports.

    Tea, if you don’t find one, you can repair that one by drilling one or two small holes in each side of the break and inserting steel pins for strength, then solder or loctite them and clean it up so the solder or loctite does not show. You could just make a new one, but the square hole might be a problem.

    Timesavers has both left and right GP's that you can modify to fit your movement.

    These parts are subjected to a lot of force as they lock the train. It was probably already cracked and you just were just lucky enough to be there when it failed completely. It will take a pretty strong repair joint if you decide to try that route.

    Not going to repair.
    Thought I could start out with one that is real close first.
    I have bought one awhile ago from R&M and fit it to another Herschede movement, but you know that story.
    The one on the left is real close, I'm going to see if it can work with a small amount of work.

    This could be easily laser welded.

    U can make one that works with a pin. Put a set screw and you can lock it in 4 positions same as squared. Hey we will have to do with what we have if this company never reopens.

    Any jeweler can braze that piece back together. You would need to cut a deep narrow 'V' about half way through the piece on one side of the break. Willie X

    Just remember what ever you do You will still need the length for it to lock out. Shorter is not much of an option

    I had a clock repair with a Westminster chime with 4 coiled gongs and one was broken. the laser welder worked fine. This pallet could easily be brazed by a jeweler.
