Hi,
I’m getting what I believe is called a flutter on the anchor / pendulette.

Anchor looks a bit of a bodge but the pallets seem to align and function but obviously there’s a problem.
The attached video shows the issue.

Any help gratefully received

in advance
Robert

Welcome. The video won’t open for me. Could you do YouTube and post it here?

Apologies in advance if this sounds silly, do you mean lower the anchor so the pallet forks engage the balance at a lower point?
Cheers

As the anchor is fixed as per the pics I’ve had to bend the forks slightly down but it’s still not right.

thanks

Ok, now I see. Somebody has soldered pins in. If it were my project, I’d try to make an actual anchor for the escape wheel. Maybe others have ideas.:???:

Managed to get it working of a fashion by tweaking the pallet forks, will try to construct a new anchor when I get time and report back.

thanks for all your help
