Thanks Bob thats makes it a lot clearer on how to use shellac, I have some on order.
I have made up 2 temporary pallets out of a steel nail , I dont know if they will work but if I can be sure the clock will work I will get the correct red stones – they are very expensive in UK , over £25 ($42) for 2 incl postage! Almost what i paid for the clock.
One last question , I understand how you must line up the flat of the pallet with the centre of the escape wheel but it also says tip of tooth must be roughly contacting the radius of the pallet. If the tip is too low on the pallet I cant work out how you adjust it other than bending the arm of the carrier but worried that will break the arm , there doesnt seem any other way of adjusting ?
