    Client brings a in an 30 hr ogee for repair. Hasn't been serviced in 20 years, according to him. So, I pull the dial and look at the movement. Looks to be in really nice condition, until I pull the movement and look at the back.:p

    What:???: You never heard of a wheel bushing? :chuckling: Gotta' love the soldering job too! I believe that's one for the "Hall of Shame" thread!

    Edit: Billy, I'm going to copy your post over there to the HOS thread so everyone can see what NOT to do. If you don't like that, let me know and I'll remove it.
