    Hi everyone, I have yet to receive one of these clocks on my desk, but today is the day that i did. My question is on how to remove the mainspring from the barrel or even how to remove the barrel from the plate. I have to admit that I haven't given a really hard try at this, but would like to hear from anyone who has worked on one of these before. I have used a spanner tool to let down the mainspring, so that is not a problem. Thanks 1.jpg 2.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 3.jpg

    It looks like those three screws are the secret to removing the barrel, but I don't see how to get at them.

    Thanks, but the three screws do get you to the barrel, the picture of me holding the mainspring was after I removed the three screws. I just dont know how to get the mainspring out of the barrel

    Maybe the arbor can be tapped out to expose the spring. Then show us a pic of the spring and the arbor. You might have to remove it by hand ... but not sure yet.
