"Just a word in addition to the article in the November issue of the AMERICAN HOROLOGIST by Mr. Pentcheck regarding the method of finding the troubles between the fork and roller table.
"His method is very good so far as he went, but there is at least one more test that I think should be made.
"In performing all the tests he gives, it is very evident that all are made with the watch lying flat on the desk D. D. postion. Now should the roller jewel be so low as to just clear the gua,rd pin all would be O. K., but due to the fact that the pallet arbor has or may have more end shake than does the balance staff, then in turning the watch in the D. U. position the roller Jeweler could then come in contact with the guard pin either stopping the watch or rubbing enough on the pin to retard the motion of the balance and impair the possibility of regulating.
