Hairspring Adjustment

This platform was given to me in quite a sorry state. Unfortunately someone had decided to oil the hairspring. Please do not do this! They need to be dry. And for good measure it was slightly out of alignment too.


The oil had seeped into everything, dried up, and needed clearing out.



You can see the hairspring out of line on the right. Also some debris from something along the top left coil.


It also did not sit quite flat, but this was more to do with the weight of the stud (the brass pointy uppy thing on the left). It was however slightly off center.


After the removal of the hairspring from the balance wheel, I set to making it better again. Nice and aligned!


I think we can all agree that this looks better than before.


Cleaned up and ready to go.
