{Collins} Meter repair





I have found the meters I have had trouble with sticking was due to bearing wear resulting in the coil assembly having too much play in it. I carefully loosened the nut on either the back or front that locks in the bearing adjustment and turned the adjustment to take the play out and tightened the nut back up.

Or you can use the old Scotch tape trick. Take a piece of Scotch tape and fold it over so that you have a two sided piece of sticky tape and carefully sweep the inside of the meter to catch any particles that might be in there.

the meter has a spec of dirt or metal in it...
Odds are, using tuner wash.."carefully"... _very carefully._... one can wash out the debris and the meter will work fine.
Have had several just like it.

Good afternoon to the group,
I have a 51S-1 that the meter sticks about 3/4 of the way up. I took it to a local watchmaker and he couldn't fix it but said that everything looked OK and nothing was broken. Is there anyone out there who does meter repair?
