Brass and steel watchmaker’s hand-operated rounding-up or topping tool for reducing out-of-round gears, (re)cutting or reshaping the form. And depth of teeth of existing watch wheels. Basically, it was used for repairment of pocket watches during the time when finding an exact replacement wheel for any given repair was by no means guaranteed and an enterprising watchmaker might need to find the closest fit wheel available and then modify it to fit the movement being repaired. Another common application would have been to reshape damaged teeth or to perform a finishing operation on a repaired or replaced section of teeth in an otherwise good wheel. Special notice: wheels can only be worked on (modified) when mounted with its original axes. After installing the wheel (on the tool holder) for reshaping, its position to the cutter can be changed by a variety of adjustments: forwards-backwards and up-down. Although this tool cannot cut new replacement wheels from row material, its cutters fit perfectly when used for (new) wheel cutting if installed in the appropriate milling machine. This tool is presented with its original accompanying wooden case, containing a selection of. 17 brass assorted wheel supporting tool holders. 3 steel arbors (3 in total of which 2 are assembled on the tool). 3 additional brass cutter holder (4 in total of which 1 is installed on the tool). 1 steel key (extra, not belonging to the tool). Which appear all to be in an excellent, directly usable condition! The tool looks like new and is ready to use! Dimensions of the tool. Dryving wheel: 16.5 cm diameter. Wooden case base size: 25 x 16 cm x 5 cm high. Overall dimensions case + tool: 32 x 20 x 26 cm high. Heavy package around 3 to 4 kg!
