Can anyone tell me where to buy roller jewels by size and, how do you measure to get the length or do they just come in short and long sizes? What I have found in my search so far is some have a mm length with the width.

For vintage pocket watches you are interested in the diameter and if it is single roller (long) or double roller (short). There is also shape, round or D shape. Most watch supply houses have them. They may be listed as roller pins.

Here is an old table form a supply catalog http://www.dashto.com/images/apwrjch.jpg

Most of us who have a stash of roller jewels. Go to a local NAWCC chapter meeting and ask around if anyone can help you.

You can find assortments at places like Dashto. See http://www.dashto.org/newlists/materials.htm

Thanks Don,
I have a small stash but am missing one size I need currently. I have an assortment from Dashto but not the right sizes. I am sure I am not looking in the right place. I'll keep at it.
