    The last roller remover tool in the video that bob said watchmakers use for wristwatches, can that also be used on pocket watches? Thanks

    Hi Chaplin37,
    I think you’re referring to the tool that you squeeze to remove the roller. If not please let me know.
    That tool should work with any watch as long as the hub is short enough so the the tool has support behind it to leverage against. With support behind the tool it can then be squeezed and will push the roller off. Also it’s important that this tool is used with balances where the underside of the balance rim is flush with the arms and does not extend below the arms.
    Bob
