Re: Dear EBay Sellers:

Maybe eBay should institute a treble-damages policy. If seller does not deliver for any reason, bar none, no excuses such as “mistake” and “no longer available,”purchase price is refunded threefold. No exceptions. Then we could start an unscrupulous buyer thread as people try to game the system fro...

Re: Set Mainspring Contest

Those are pretty typical examples, IMHO. I have had that fracture-thing happen to me a couple of times too.

Re: help needed Hamilton 400 movement

I'm not sure what a stem detent is but if it's the same as a set lever (and holds the stem in the movement) then here's the part number. At least it's a start.
