An introduction to medicinal chemistry 6th edition
In every profession, there are tools important to the trade. There are likely some tools with multiple uses — tools that are a jack of all trades. Without them, our jobs would be increasingly difficult. In watchmaking, that tool is the staking set. The base of the staking set has a rotating set of round holes, which can accept anvils and stakes.
The tool is used by lining up an anvil or stake in the base and another in the headstock. Some of the uses of the staking set are reducing the diameter of a round hole in a plate, removing the roller from a balance or forming a rivet for a balance staff. Like any good mechanic, using the proper tools makes just about any project easier.

Picked this up recently for a snip from an excellent fleabayer in Japan: A fairly clean item from August with a good dial. Being a bit of a fan. Is there a tool? Even though the case and dial is different the logo and the movement in these are the same. This is the complete original book, including the tool catalog information that was omitted from previous reprints.
I see that I have a set to tighten cannon pinions with. Toold have been fine!. A warm welcome tools the forum Tom. You can find the latest version of them at. Unfortunately I could with a quick look see what was wrong with it and why it was left to be unloved.
