I posted this in the watchmaking section too but....

So I finally figured out the final problem that the Vulcain Cricket I have has. The teeth on the sweep seconds pinion are screwed up. One is missing and 2 are too close together now. This is all the result of that cheap case press I had slamming into the back of the watch. If anyone has one....I am willing to buy it from you.

So Blake at Scotchwatch has come through for me again. He can source the pinion but $75 will be my toll for my mistake. So once it arrives I will put the watch bvack together and post it....if it works out and I don't need a new center wheel and pinion due to the seconds pinion being pressed into the end of it. Got some pain loss at the center of the white seconds hand....may need to touch that up some. Now to search for a good case press...no more junk.

Cheap tools are evil. I find they have a long term cost, in damage and time wasted trying to make them do what they're
supposed to do.
