I have an old Anglo clock with a Welch movement that has an old tooth repair on one of the second wheels. Looking at it I realized there were no missing teeth and wondered what was going on. When I looked closer at the wheel it is actually cracked around the circumference of the wheel and It goes through the wheel and even into the spoke. The crack/slit affects about a dozen teeth. I guess this was soldered on here to firm it up but the crack continued. Is this common? Is it even repairable? Tried to get a picture of the split but hard to do with just my cell.
