    I have been working on another Swiss ladies cylinder movement pocket watch and one of the endstones is badly chipped. I could re-fit it as the face where the pivot runs is ok but there is quite a chunk missing from one side and I hate re-fitting faulty parts. I have made quite an extensive search and can’t find a supplier. I bought a couple of mixed jewel packs from cousins but have not managed to find anything deep enough, the cap jewels in these assortments are all quite shallow. Does anyone know where I might be able to buy some?

    Arutha,
    Almost forgot, while you are on their website check out their price for a new Jacot too. Make sure you are sitting down when you look at it.

    Thank you David,
    speaking of prices have you seen how much a fully loaded Bergeon lathe costs?

    Arutha,
    I knew that and that is why I jumped on it when it came up for sale on Ebay.It came with the Bergeon cross slide and T-rest. I put in a bid for $2100.00 and won the auction at $1350.00. I have all of the other accessories by other makers. I am going to make the box myself once my wood shop is up and running. I think these lathes come up for sale about once every ten years. The Sincere lathe is a copy of this and it is also a fantastic lathe for a lot less money. Their “D” bed is 22mm while the Bergeon bed is 18mm. They are both nice machines. Once I figure out how to post pictures I will photograph these machines and put them on the site.
