  1. Thank you for the answer. I also believe that oiling would add some sort of "drag". But I still believe that there is a little bit of friction (hence the "safety"). Also the natural forces involved are on the horizontal, not the vertical.
  2. Hello! Do you oil the shouldered “safety” screws that hold in place the coupling clutch 8080, the sliding gear 8100 or the hammer 8219? If so, do you also put a very tiny drop of hp 1300 under them? you can find the entire doc here: http://watchguy.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Le-Landeron-48.pdf Thank you! Bogdan

  9. Do you mean Trichloroethylene version vs tetrachloroethylene version?
  10. For cleaning a smeared piece or an overoiled jewel I use IPA (isopropyl alcohol)
  11. I use a 10mm thick plexy 50mm/20mm with different diameter holes in it
  12. How fast?
  13. What do you mean by "The crown/stem is spring loaded like a borgel"? Sorry, I don't understand.
