  1. Hi What is the Best light color for the watchmaker workshop, 2700K 3500K or ??? What do you think...
  2. Well i think i will save up some more money and have one like that.... there was one on auction at Fellows today it was sold for £1100 + 25% buyer's premium.... i think it's the price for one in good shape like yours
  3. The blue new one on eBay are in no way like a Elma Super Elite. They don't have the drive shaft running thrue the motor like the Elma. The finish are very poor and the basket's looks like sh.. If you think "it's good enough for my needs" so you're going to regret later. I'm sorry but i would rather have a good used Elma
  4. Great, how much did you have to pay out for this, if i may ask... perhaps you some day can make a little video showing how it works...
  5. Elma RM90 is on my wish list as well. Some of these machines have problems with the wire to the motor. You may be lucky and find one and maybe you can fix it ... It's such a machine with this mistake im looking for! RM 90 19$ repair >>> More about this problem >>> I've occasionally seen this elma at online auctions, I have seen them there at very fair price An old auction >>> Another old auction >>> I hope you get one some day... good luck
  6. Aha…. got it :-) Thanks for the good explanation and the fine videos
  7. I have seen these lapping machines before, but I can not quite figure out how it works so that it forms this beautiful sunburst pattern? Can you please show the principle of image , sketch, video , etc. Very fine result by the way!!
  8. You are right. Switch up enable winding the clock. Switch down enable time setting.
  9. Is there anyone who can tell anything about this watch. On the dial is stamped " Swiss made" and "8 days " . It looks like something for a car from the 30s to the 50s
  10. Here at me it looks like a pin more than a screw, as I do not see any slot! Maybe I am wrong? I will do another try...
  11. I now considering a purchase of a timegrapher. China models is probably my immediate choice, but I have this and other hobbies learned that you sometimes might as well spend a little more since otherwise i often regret later and then must buy again. I can read here and there that the Chinese model works fine, but what model required for example to measure a watch with Co-axial, the model 1000, 1900 or 3000 ?? Does anyone have experience with this ??
  12. The German watchmaker Steffen Pahlow have some videos using old watchmaker tools on his website and on his youtube channel. You might find some of your tools there?
  13. The price of the machine is now set down. I suppose that it is 110V, otherwise I could be tempted. There must be someone in the US who can use this fine machine?
