    Burkhard -

    I think you're the expert on Staigers! ;) You have a few by now, right? I don't see Staiger in the repair guide so can't really help with info.

    Hello Burkhard,
    It seems I remember .0019 being the correct thickness (in inches). I did have one I had to go up two sizes to get to run correctly, but three that ran with this size.

    And: RUNNING!!! after solving three capital issues .It started with the breakage of one pallet pin of the anchor . It was replaced by an ignorant clockmaker with a pin three times as thick as the original 0.08mm.This eliminated the free drop of 1°,the whole escapement wasn´t operational at all!! Pulling out the wrong pin found the original hole way too large!! While fiddeling with the anchor - which is a tiny stamped out and then bent thin brass part - the anchor fork broke off:banghead: I cried out for help and found my new (female and good locking) watchmaker. She solded in a new correct anchor pin and silver soldered the anchor fork and finaly built in a new suspension spring- which is a pain in these!!! Thanks to her!!
    And here it is waiting/running to be regulated :enjoy!
