O.K. what a day 🙄 , learned how to rub in a new jewel today, I found a loose jewel that was exactly what I needed, rubbed out the old one and rubbed in the new, I tell yah, it takes some patients :? , I think I spent more than half the time rolling around on the floor looking for parts 😯 , jewels are hard to hold onto, then I remembered Bobs advice somewhere to use spit, low and behold it works for jewels, a little spit on the end of a pegwood and wallah 😯 …..put the balance in and tested the end-shake = perceptible and side-shake = less than 5degrees, balance runs smoothly, sorry guys I just get all excited when I learn a new thing :D , William
