I have a kit of bushings that go down to I.d. of 1mm. If I need to go to .9, .8 and .7 do I need to go to smaller
Reamer and o.d?
Reamer and o.d?
Thanks. I had bought a number three and was suggested to get the 1.4 height and 2.7 od cutter originally. So you’re saying that all my reamed holes should be #2 other than the main wheels? Good to know because most of the advice I was given was to use #3 and the buy the #1 kwm bushing kit. I have the bushing kit that does 1.4 height 2.7 o.d that goes from 1mm Id up to about 1.9 or something like that. What should I have bought that you think is most likely used on these?Yes a #2 cutter is very useful on modern cuckoos. The main wheel pivots will still require a #3. All bushings will need to be 1.4mm in height. Willie
The set I had bought and was suggested to me was the 1.4 height and 2.7od and the 2.7mm reamer. I know people get annoyed with my questions, but I had asked about bushings reamers and sizes a bunch of times and was told to get 2.7 and #3 reamer. So it looks like I need a #2, but what set of bushings is good for that?Power, I seldom do cuckoos, but, like Willie said, you need 1.4 height bushings due to the thin plates. The smaller pivots require smaller OD bushings, thus, a smaller cutter. Most of the IDs of the assortments normally sold with that height are small enough to fit pivots on cuckoos. Some pivots, however, require larger ID bushings which are made in the 2.7 OD
Look at the assortments offered at Timesavers and choose the one that has the small IDs that match the cuckoo movement’s pivots you bush most often. Those with IDs that are smaller than 1mm are used often with cuckoos.these will require the smaller cutter.The set I had bought and was suggested to me was the 1.4 height and 2.7od and the 2.7mm reamer. I know people get annoyed with my questions, but I had asked about bushings reamers and sizes a bunch of times and was told to get 2.7 and #3 reamer.

It looks like I would need l-11 l-12 and l-13. But I cannot find those numbers in any assortments. I have 11604 assortment.If you download the size chart from mile high clocks, you can figure out the assortment that will work best for you. Look at llla
Power, I’m wrong about that. The assortment I have with small IDs is not available at Timesavers. Try Joe’s suggestion.I have the catalog. I can’t find an assortment with Ids smaller than 1mm. There is one set in the caralog (timesaver) German made kwm and when I put the number in it doesn’t have the correct size I’d that is shoes I. The catalog...
Thanks a lot! I’ll get one! My caliper was lost recently. I need to get a new one. The Baduf movments i think may have smaller holes.I don't think you need all those smaller bushings. #s 12, 13 & 65 should do it, as already stated, unless your HH has smaller pivots.
Did you get a caliper yet? A Starlet
3202-6 is available for $98.53 at Amazon. Any ole $20 starter calaper would be way better than guessing.
