361-DL: Slippering An Anchor

English longcase movements often have recoil anchors which exhibit extreme wear on the pallet surfaces.  Simply grinding out the wear causes the escapement to be inefficient.  Slippering the anchor, or adding material to the pallet surfaces to compensate for wear, is what will be covered in this lesson.
