Will you return my old parts?
Brass Gears - We use your old spokes and add a new ring of teeth. Nothing to return on this work.
Barrel Bottoms - We cut off the old Bottom and replace with new. Nothing to return on this work.
Steel Pinions - We can return old parts when requested with order.
Do you repair my old parts?
Normally it is cheaper to make new.
Do you sell old parts?
No, we machine new parts per customers request.
Can you straighten teeth in my Mainspring Barrel?
We can straighten the teeth but since they are weakened at the root we prefer not to.
I have a gear with a bad tooth. Can you replace the tooth only?
It can take as long to replace a tooth as it does to make a new gear. We make all new teeth for added strength.
Can you straighten leaves in my Steel Pinion?
Can you straighten steel arbors?
Depends on arbor and where it is bent. Send the arbor for evaluation.
