Clock Mainspring Tools
Mainspring Release Tool Handle with 3 chucks covers about every key size. Put the chuck into the handle and then release the mainspring in a slow controlled manner in your grip. This is done by putting the tool onto the key post arbor and then gently releasing the click that holds the mainspring wound up.
Mainspring Let Down Used to release the power in a wound up mainspring. Key goes into the chuck and the chuck goes into the handle so you can let down the power of the spring. It does the same job as the let down with all the chucks. If someone were to take a spring driven clock apart without letting down the mainsprings, bad things may happen. The movement would get ruined and you can get your hands hurt.
Loop End Mainspring Winder Winder for loop end mainsprings, to be used with the mainspring clamps. This is to take a unwound loop end mainspring and wind it up to get a clamp on. When the C clamp is on, it is much easier to manage in the clock movement assembly process.There is no "safe" operation on this one. It is both dangerous and tricky. You would use the great wheel, put it through the hole in the device, clamp it down with something under the clamp to protect the teeth of the wheel. Put the mainspring on it and the loop over the arbor of the device. Use a mainspring key to wind the mainspring up on the great wheel that is clamped, when the mainspring is small enough put the mainspring clamp on it. Now the mainspring is wound and easier to put into the disassembled movement to reassemble again.
