Welcome the the forum KyBill2011!
Yes you’re correct about holding the stem to remove the crown. The stem should be removed from the movement (or in the case of a pocket watch where the stem is held in the case pendant the movement should be removed from the case). You can then grab the stem square with a small plier (preferably smooth jaw) and unscrew the crown from the stem.
Thanks Willofiam! I hope the new forums will help us all. I put those up late yesterday. You actually spurred the idea when we talked about your shop photos a while back.
Have a great Sunday!
