Longcase Escape Wheel

The damaged tooth on this Longcase Clock Escape Wheel was causing a poor escapement action. The damaged tooth photograph shows that it had previously been poorly repaired. It was necessary to cut out this tooth, solder in its place a piece of hammered brass and then file the new tooth to its correct profile. The completed wheel photo shows the repair before final shaping was carried out while testing the wheel in the clock movement.
