Hi. I was cleaning and reassembling this Seth Thomas clock and when I was using the lathe to polish the pivots I had a little mishap with the fork arm. It got bent. I simply straightened it and reassembled. Now the forks are touching the balance pin thus stopping the balance from freely rotating. Any ideas on how I can shorten this? It's the distill end of one of the forks only that touches the balance wheel stake.
