That’s what it looked like, but figured out that someone tried to make a ‘not original’ wheel work. The wheel, pivot to pivot is shorter than all the others in the time train. Fiddle sticks, now I have to see if I have a junk Gilbert movement to scavage from.Strange...
Looks like an attempt at making a shoddy bushing job.
Definitely not original, ugly and possibly ineffective.
All true but let's not forget RC who, in post #9, was the first to recognize these as unusual manufactured parts and not part of some unusual but tidy hack.Thanks to Tim and Willie for their years of experience setting the record straight.
