• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

i have one, i collect tools as well as use them. the one fault with this one is the use of set screws to secure the winding arbor while working the spring. the square is often indented by the set screws and must be refinished. The set screw setup takes more time than the chuck types.

Wilbur's clock mainspring winders show up occasionally. They were produced in small quantities by my late friend, J. Wilbur Spears about 1980. Several suppliers offered them at about a hundred dollars.

I have one of those came with 10 receivers, also two brass fat washers, but they aren't shown in the diagram, they slip on the lower shaft, which has a flat on the end, they have an Allen key grub screw in them that would clamp to the lower bar that the hooks go on, what are they for?

This is an eleven year old thread, so perhaps the photos are long gone.
