To all my Students and Subscribers,

As you progress and sharpen your clock repair skills you will come across pivots that are grooved or broken. You can send these out for repair or you can fix Finding Tool will make Pivoting a Clock Arbor an easier task by marking the Center of the Arbor with a divot that guides your final size drill bit. It uses a perfectly centered Cone and Drill bit which captures the arbor and holds it centered while the divot is formed on the end of the arbor. I added a shallow cone on the other end to be used for very short arbors due to lantern pinions being too close to the pivoting job, Nice feature.
Pivoting is the process a Clockmaker uses to replace a worn or broken Pivot. Pivots run in brass plates for 15 to 20 years and eventually stop the clock as the turning resistance increases. It is caused by dirt, grooved or broken pivots.
The trick is to replace a pivotas quickly as you replace a bushing, that is what the Center Finding Tool allows you to do.After the New Pivot is in, replace the Bushing it rides in as the old bushing is also grooved or elongated. Whatever it is, replace the bushing and size it to your new pivot.Note: To learn Hand Bushing Clock Plates, checkout Taig or Sherline lathe with a 3/8 keyless chuck is preferred but a small drill press on its side will do the job spinning the arbor horizontally. You can cut or file off the broken pivot stud, smooth, create the centered divot using the Pivot Center Tool, drill the pivot hole, install new pivot and polish.
