    Set Lever Screw Help Hamilton K504

    Well the set lever screw on this thrift store Hamilton is sheared about half way down. It will screw down and out but the bottom is still in the hole. I can’t get the stem out so it is stuck in the case. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

    Pic of movement.

    You can always remove the applicable bridge or hold the stem with needle noses, remove the crown and try to snake the movement out.

    I was able to get the stem out by doing removing the bridge. Unfortunately the screw is broken off in the lever leaving nothing to grab onto. Looks like I need to find a new lever and screw or a donor movement.
