I have a restored 6139 8002 on a razor bracelet which is a mm too narrow (18 not 19) The spring bar for the bracelet keeps popping out, and I don't like the sound of it hitting the floor!
No damage at all luckily. The holes in the lugs look ok,so could I put a longer spring bar in ? The holes in the bracelet are fairly small. Or what are the alternatives? I am fed up with it as an ornament.
:growup:NEVER !

If the spring bar keeps popping out you probably have a spring bar that's too short. If you get a 19mm spring bar that should solve your problem.

Try 20mm spring bars.

I would look for a suitable 19mm straight end bracelet or a 20mm one and file the ends down to 19mm because the bracelet width is probably the cause of your problem.

I had one like that .........

I used the recommended spring bar on the bracelet, but it still
came off. When I checked it out ( Magnifying glass ), it had a
slight (BURR on the edge of the bracelet edge). Therefore it was
snagging the spring bar and pressuring it to move a little inward
and causing it just enough to come of.
What I did was with a jeweler's file touch it up so as to it not
being (sharp edged ).
Whenever something is drilled, its should be ........" D-Burred ",
because it will be sharp edged.
( They call it ......... " Chamfering ". )

Thanks, I'll check that. Got some sturdy 20mm ones in the post as well.
