I spoke at length at a club meeting this past week on the Watch-o-scope. It generated a lot of interest. One pair of watch enthusiasts approached me with a question as to whether Watch-o-scope could regulate an 8-day clock. The torsion-spring escapement on such a clock has a 12-15 second interval. The lowest selectable rate is 3600 bph (1 beat per second). The 8-day clock is between 240 - 300 bph. Could the software be modified to accommodate such a low rate?
Ive a screw thread broken off in a brass plate prob caused by a mix of corrosion due to a batt leak and ham-fistedness then breaking it off just below the face of the plate.
--Ive just aquired this watch--havent yet received it, but the above is pretty obvious from the picture Look just below the batt recess, the stump of the screw in the plate-
What would be the best way to remove this without any damage to the brass?
The advantage is--being a sorta softish plastic, parts bouncing round due to the ultra dont get damaged as could be possible using a glass bottle/vial/beaker, being semi sealed you can use any cleaning fluid you like in them with just water in the ultrasonic tank keeping cleaner fluids costs down
--Yup. I'm a cheapskate!
