    I am currently working on a wood plate movement with brass wheels and brass bushings. The second wheel pivot is worn in a cone shape from 65 thou down to 40 thou and the pivot hole is worn open to 77 thou. My first question is do you think I should reduce the entire pivot to 40 thou or does it need re-pivoted? Second is how to best clean the remaining pivot holes? How are the brass bushing in the plate removed? It looks like the bushing were pushed in and peened over, if so, what is the proper method of removing them? My first thought is to use a drill bit to cut away peened over area than push out the brass bushing. I have never worked on this style clock and any help the more experienced folks can provide is greatly appreciated.

    I have no idea of the origin of the movement. I tried to post pics but I can not seem to sync my camera and laptop. I know it's very hard to help without them. I will try again. Thanks Burkhard.
