• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

I recently bought a Pomeroy movement, eight day, balance wheel escapement. I seek someone with one or intimate knowledge. As I received this , it had a 3/4" wide mainspring. Quite old and quite set. I put another spring in , a 3/4" wide. It's trying to 'ball up' as there is space for a one inch spring. The anchor for the hole end spring is one half inch across the space. I'll put a one inch spring in it, but What is the strength? and length? Thank you for your consideration. I'll add a pic if required.
