So, my question is, If I file the wear out of this verge and then bring it back to these specs it should work
Possibly….like you said, if it was working before? …there are several other things that would have to be looked at between the escape wheel and the verge, escape wheel teeth, pivot holes, lock and drop. On the road today so I better get going for now. Keep up the study…by the way, filing will help get the groove out of the pallet faces but you will also want to get them as smooth and polished as possible. I use stones ending with hard Arkansas then polishing and burnishing.
