the flat part of the bottom of the staff was hitting the jewel brass setting.

Nic, Something doesn’t sound right with this? Even if the pivot was broken off, the staff shouldn’t touch the setting as its diameter is smaller, the staff cone should, by rights, rest or even fall, into the lowest point, the oil sink of the jewel?

Unfortunately we never know who has messed with these old watches, altered something or replaced original parts with “Handy” parts.
I’ve had my share of mismatched parts that I thought were the originals, only to find that they’d been bastardized DOH 😮
A lot of wasted time, but fun :)
