Thread: Regulation lever pusher tool

    Regulation lever pusher tool

    When working close up I donít have good 3-D vision. Iíve had a difficult time getting an appropriate screwdriver blade positioned correctly against the regulator lever to push it. One time, I went down into the balance wheel and I will only say it did not turn out well.

    I ground a notch into the tip of this inexpensive 2 mm screwdriver blade. De-burred it afterwards, wiped and rinsed it and then wiped it again to hopefully eliminate all small bits of junk. It worked just as I hoped it would.

    Gently rest the short part of the blade tip on the top surface of regulator lever. The longer side of the tip is the pusher.

    Nice idea that but if you use a spring bar remover tool it's already done for us

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I will try that. The approach to the leverís edge will be different but it could work well. Thanks!
