  5. Sorry to say - neither of those lubricants have the correct properties to act as a braking grease.

    Panasonic G7

    Panasonic G7 has its own native macro lens. It's a 30mm (So 60mm full frame equivelent). I use it as a regular prime though as I want to get in even closer with the camera further away. The solution for me was a Viltrox EF-M2 speedbooster and Canon EF macro 100mm and 60mm prime lenses. Both very sharp buy the 100mm is the most useful to me. Shoot in 4k and use a 1080p timeline in Davinci Resolve and you will be able to crop in even further. Or shoot in 1080p and use the Ex-tele function on the G7 which effective turns your lens into two primes. Side note - I recently upgraded to the GH5 and have not regretted it. But the G7 is an amazing camera so I decided to keep it - they compliment each other well. Hope this helps. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Watch Building ETA 2892

    Using the 2892 movement, lets put together a nice looking wristwatch using all parts sourced from eBay.
  12. It's a very easy repair for any competent jeweller to be fair. Especially as it has not broken completely so does not need re-aligning. You should do a search on the NAJ website for a local jeweller... http://www.naj.co.uk/en/member-services/member-search.cfm
  13. Nice job. Just needs a 50 inch TV on one wall and a couch Hope you will be warm enough in the winter.

    Help finding lathe collets

    What is the OD of the main shaft (not the threaded portion) it looks unusually large in comparison to the thread. It may be possible it can support 8mm collets in which case, you can just use a different draw bar. A universal drawbar may be the best bet - I have one from with a standard 8mm thread on one end and a WW on the other. The handle is adjustable along it's length and so will work in many configurations. I believe I purchased it from Sincere Clocks on eBay. Could be worth a look if the dimensions suit?

  16. All the modifications have now been made. I have made the welcome email more clear and I have made it clear on the Q&A forum that many members will consider it a politeness if people introduce themselves to the community first before diving in. The correct place to do this is here. Thank you for everybody participating in this thread and to @Endeavor for starting the discussion, some great ideas have been put forward and I hope we have set a workable system in place. To that end - I feel this discussion has served it's purpose and will now close it to further replies.

    OT some larger scale craftmanship

    Great post - amazing talent.
  18. @oldhippy - For some odd reason @ecodec replied to say thank you by submitting a report rather than a reply. In any case - he says thank you
  19. My Bergeon set was purchased around late 90s. The MKS set I am not sure as I purchased it second hand off a retired watchmaker in the 80s. I am guessing perhaps circa 1960s. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
