In a clock, like a watch, if a mainspring happens to break, it can be very damaging. In the photo here we have a mainspring that damaged the barrel by ripping off the teeth. However, when this happens, you DO NOT repair it like it is pictured in this first picture instead you should do it like it is pictured in the second picture. However this poor clock didn't have a hope as the mainspring looked like this when I pulled it out of the barrel. How could anyone expect a clock to work when you combine a mainspring like this with a bodged repair attempt like those teeth?
