Thanks for the info Bob, I’m going to go at it probably tomorrow and I’ll take a few progress photos to post for either accolades or to put me up against the wall 😆

How does it normally go when re-fitting the pinion shaft into the new wheel, if it’s a friction/press fit, how can I prevent any distortion if all distances are correct? Would it be a preferable technique to use a jeweling lever to press it in or simply to tap it in using the hammer?

Would I need to use a depthing tool along with the refurbished balance to check the mating, or would it be better to eyeball it once it’s mounted in the movement?

Thanks, Chris
