    Hi guys, :D first ships bell movement for me, I am not sure if this is a worn hammer tail or not, it almost looks like it is supposed to be this way 🙄 but if I were looking at some other movement I would think it is worn. so before I make a new one I would like your input. thank you all, have a great day. William :D

    Well……… I took the old one out. used a rod of pinion wire, softened it and smashed the tip to resemble the original. filed it flat and square put a 45 degree bevel on the drop side, tested in the movement, riveted to the arbor, hardened as bob shows in his video, polished..looks like it will work and I now think that my question was a little dense 😳 but, oh well, need to live and learn ;) ……Thanks guys for letting me use up your time. William

    Hi William,
    Yes that’s worn. Let us know how the new one works out.
