Picked up a nice wee Kelton, goldtone, but with a #20 non-sweep inside. Plastic spacers, green coloured plastic. It wanted to go when wound, but Oh Dear! - - any position but face up, whence it stops after ten seconds or so. sad.gif

5lbs hammer required I think - - and I wanted an easy fix, I'm not in the mood for a full strip and clean and refurbish. I can see "muck" on the balance wheel, looks like DNA detritis, yet the case is a tight one with no holes or ingress except maybe through the stem opening. Strange, there's also some detritis in the back case as well.

I don't tend to have as much success with #20's as with later movements, I wonder if some of the problem is excess wear, these all have to be around the same length of time as meself, about 70 years old now!
