    After spending some time going through threads, I am not sure this question has been asked. Is there a standard taper used for the squared winding arbors or does this vary by manufacturer or some other practice?


    Thanks

    I don't think there is a standard taper. Most modern movements do not taper the winding arbor square at all.

    Thanks... I have been working on older clocks, which usually do have a taper. I wondered if these were standardized in any way.

    Many thanks
