Are there any videos of how to repair Maine wheels on cuckoo clocks?
Yes, R.J., I have done that too but this one has no groove cut in the arbor. The retainer has to be made out of hard steel and the tips dig into the smooth arbor and retain the tension spring. Maybe I could cut a groove in the arbor or drill it and insert a pin. You can’t remove these without breaking them.I use a thin gauge tie wire. Less pro, more practical.
