What a resounding success it was. As you can see by the photo. Now, I need help. I do not have the sources, materials or expertise to "fit or install" a proper stem and crown assembly fir a 3/0 Elgin or Waltham movement.
I would appreciate any help to help me finish my project. Thank you very much for the "tip", it saved a good case.

I need help. I now have removed the "damaged" remnants from the tube. I do not have the expertise of materials to install a new tube/sleeve/crown combination. Who could help me with this project? As always, thank you

If you have a sleeve and stem, you can send to me and I can install. It is an easy fix and I owe you as it is. To do on your own, all you really need is the sleeve wrench; here is an example...

Although Dashto has better tools and prices...

please email if you'd like me to do it.
