Smashed the pivot on the 435 pallet arbor I've been servicing.

Not content to call it a night, I pulled the pallet fork from my donor 335 and smashed its arbor pivot too. Embarrassed

Almost done with this service. FOUND the last replacement pallet fork in the swamp. Interchange catalog shows this as a caliber 430 part.

Thanks in advance!

FOUND, thank you Dietrich.


Make sure to check your jewels under 15x, you might find a detached pivot in there, ideally before you break another.

Despite a lack of interchange info in Gruen Material Catalog 453, and slight differences in appearance, the 335 pallet cock slots into the 435. I replaced both the smashed pallet and the bridge with the detached pivot.
