Cleaning
re-assembly of key-less work
worn/damaged exit pallet stone
  • I completed work on another Elgin similar to the
    others.  Needed a general cleaning (when the
    watch was dis-assembled it was soaked in oil),
    and discovered one of the pallet jewels was
    badly worn.

Timing watch on the Microset Computer program. Notice the small
variation between face-up, and pendant-up (the lines slant down
below the 18000 line). The watch average is keeping pretty steady.
