How to Fix Clock Spring

Introduction

How to Fix Clock Spring 1

In this handy guide, we want tenrare to understand how to save broken spring, a watch instead of throw it and can’t stop using it!
In this case, we will try to refer to the classic method of DIY, which will give us a hand to save, but especially to put into practice our fancy!
You broke a spring pendulum clock maybe even prized and don’t know who to trust to fix it? You fear that may have difficulties or even ruin it? You want to try to save the spring of your Dear clock grandfather clock? 

Here mysteryaround will provide some simple and hopeful instructions that help you to replace the spring of the pendulum clock. It happens that even good watchmakers have difficulty doing these operations because it is not easy to get the pendulum spring, especially if it is old.

Be sure to have on hand:

How to Fix Clock Spring 2

  • A bench vise
  • A hammer
  • A welding torch
  • a pointed punch
  • The development of various sizes
  • Some round and flat files
  • A shear
  • A piece of wood
  • Adjusted gasoline or alcohol

We assume not being able to find the spring and we need to fix it if we want to operate again our grandfather clock. Typically the springs are broken at the eyelet that snaps to their barrel of coverage (it is a cylinder with teeth); When we extract the spring from the barrel are almost certainly open the eyelet of the spring. At this point we must cut with pliers to iron on the part of the wheel that is not broken, but first we have to memorize the outline of this hole.

How to Fix Clock Spring 3

Take the torch for welding and “dilute” the area that needs to be drilled (of 3 fingers approx) until it gets very hot, so using a hammer we give several shots rather buckets doing so a hole in the Center. Allow to cool the part alone and then, taking a punch with thickness more or less than a pen, and even a hammer, we must give more hits dried enough making a hole in the center of the area that has been previously diluted.

Now we have to help us with a clamp, and enlarge the hole using a reamer; then, using a round file that it removes any burrs, and even with a flat file that is used to shape it, we become like the hole of an old lock for lockers, i.e. round which ends with a triangle. At this point we have to have a small warning: before putting it back in its place and reattach it in we need to degrease it with gasoline adjusted or with alcohol and then oil it. At this point we need to replace spring repaired inside his barrel, by clipping it to the hook exists. Check that the hook enters into the hole that we have forged and having some “game”, otherwise the movement may stop responding. Now you’re done: we were able to repair the spring and we can fit inside the barrel. Good job!
