this last week has been dedicated to completing the pinions and fitting the wheels to their respective arbors for both movements.
I have all the wheels and pinions up to the escape wheel for the Mean/Solar movement and up to the 3rd wheel for the Sidereal movement. The next task will be to depth the wheels, mark the plates, drill, ream, fit the jewels, make and fit the jeweled endpieces to each movement.
Until now I have been able to work on both movements simultaneously, however from now onwards I will be working at completing each movement one at a time. Up to this point both movements have been the same but from now on each movement will begin to establish its own separate identity.
