LP3216-Right Hand Right Angle Pivot

Glardon Vallorbe Swiss Made Pivot Files/Burnishers are made with precision edges to ensure the perfect finish on pivots. The German for these files is Schrage rechts fur Uhrenmacher which translates into Slanted Right for Watchmaker in English, so the smaller size of these pivot files is for smaller watch pivots, while the larger Pivot files LP3211 and LP3212 are traditionally used for larger clock pivots.

LP3216-For underneath the pivot

First remove general pitting right up to the shoulder of the pivot using the side with the very fine cut and then burnish with the other end which has no cut. These smaller pivot files have brightly polished and radiused edges on either the right edge or the left edge for polishing watch pivots, clock pivots or pivots of any kind. A close inspection with a magnifier is about the only way to keep these tools identified correctly! Length: 180 mm Width: 4.5 mm Height: 2 mm

We still have inventory of these no longer in production pivot files from Glardon-Vallorbe of Switzerland. These files are no longer in any factory catalogs. When this stock sells out that is it!

Important Note:

The factory diagrams for this product show the impression of the angles, cuts and burnished edge that the end of the file would make if pressed against a piece of paper-not the view of the end of the file if you pick it up and look at it end on. Understandably this has caused much confusion about these files over the years as it is common to think you have received the wrong file.
