    I have been unable to find any let down tools on the internet. I will have to make my own. I have a few questions.
    1. How many sizes for PW?
    2. What are the dimensions of the squares?
    Sorry to keep pestering you so much.
    Thanks J Ross

    Hi JdRoss99

    Hey you’re not pestering at all. We need way more questions like that up here.
    I’m still traveling right now and don’t have my let down keys handy or I would just measure them for you. One thing that you can do though is use some old pocket watch stems (if you have some) in a pin vise. That works pretty well. You may need to cut off the material beyond where the square ends but that’s about it. If you still want to make a set though which I recommend you can just measure the squares on the stems and make some nice tools one at a time. I don’t know how many you’ll need but it’s not a lot. If you don’t have old stems lying around you can make the tools as you go just by measuring the stem that’s in the watch you’re working with at the time.
    Maybe someone else up here has some dimensions handy or can measure their let down keys for you.

    Have FUN,
    Bob
