Sounds good Tom.
I also should add that you may find it easier to view the drop etc. from the dial side using the inspection holes. Also the banking pins are the easiest thing to adjust in this whole process. In fact it normally takes less than a minute to adjust each one after the stones have been set in place. I often move them in as I explained in my post just to do a quick inspection of an escapement. I think this is called ‘banking to the drop’ or something like that. I need to look it up to confirm the terminology. I know this flies in the face of what you may read online about not touching them but the adjustable banking pins make it easier for me to do a quick yet proper escapement inspection. So…since this movement is to practice on anyway then I would recommend practicing this and stone adjustments as much as possible. After a few times I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy this seemingly complex procedure really is.

Hope this helps Tom!
