I found this in a lot of clock repairman's tools/supplies. What is it? I've searched thru some old horology catalogs and can't find it.

TIA

On page 7103D of the Bergeon catalogue, part #30045 set of four movement holders 72, 98, 145, 175mm for alarm and small clocks like french movements.

I use sections of plastic down pipe for the same purpose.

I use one of the cardboard tubes that "Pringles" chips come in.

After cutting down the edge furs over and is nice and soft, no chance of scratching things.

The only down-side I can see with using potato chip tubes, is that there is likely to be traces of SALT in amd on the cardboard...and salt is HIGHLY corrosive stuff-!

I assumed I wouldn't need to mention the necessity of giving the cut down tube a good clean before putting it to use.
I've been using mine for the last 10 years with no problems.

Other very useful bench tools are the cut off ends of aerosol cans. The curved bottoms make great little dishes for screws, small parts etc.
And, even though I know I shouldn't need to mention this, make sure the can is empty before cutting off the bottom couple of inches........
