  1. "This industrial sunburst steel design is incredibly eye catching"
  2. No problem - I'm just checking. There's always that niggle inside that things can be better
  3. This is a discussion forum website based on pretty much the most popular forum software available - ipboard. How many drag and drop facilities and browser plugins are required? Is it the general consensus that the software I pay for is not good enough for purpose? If so I will sort something out! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. That suggests a local issue either with your firewall or your ISP. if you cant get access you can confirm this via multiple 'is it down or just me' websites which can be found in Google. I use an independent monitoring service which tells me the minute there are any issues and WRT currently shows 99.99% uptime on a monthly basis. I have Absolutely zero idea what this statement means. Rich in what? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. As mentioned many many many times via every possible way of communicating to members, the Early access videos are now on https://www.watchrepairlessons.com/ Also, this is not the place to seek support if you are having problems - please use the contact form on the watch repair lessons website. Thank you Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Kindly message for support via the following link - I don't want to provide support via this forum as we may have to talk about personal details. https://www.watchrepairlessons.com/contact-us/ Thanks for your understanding.
  7. I assume you are referring to Watch Repair Lessons website as you would not have been able to post this message here on the forum if you were not signed in. So, as I have mentioned in all the emails sent out, the topic posted in Patreon and the notice at the top of this forum, you need to CREATE an account on Watch Repair Lessons website in order to access it - it just takes a second to do, and your Patreon account will sync automatically assuming you use the same registered email, not sure what the problem is with doing that. Again, as mentioned many times in all the emails and notices, the video and lesson content should be separated from this forum so that this forum is not seen as a tool for me to sell my courses. I want and have always wanted the forum to be independent. The Lessons and content are one thing and this forum is another. This has been posted at the top of the forum for weeks now... This is posted in Patreon.... And also several emails have been sent via this forum and via Patreon. I have tried my best @Folkvisor However, If you are uncomfortable with the way I am structuring this then kindly let me know and I will sadly help to close your Patreon subscription.

  10. merged your old account - they are now one
  11. I can recommend carbide drills from eternal tools. See my second to last video on YT, repairing a broken pivot. and you will see They cut through like butter. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Sorry to say - neither of those lubricants have the correct properties to act as a braking grease.
  13. 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

  15. Nice. Thanks for the heads up Just ordered a copy - £15 from Amazon. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  16. 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
  17. Nice job. Just needs a 50 inch TV on one wall and a couch Hope you will be warm enough in the winter.
  18. 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?
  19. Agreed, The correct place for members to introduce themselves is here... https://www.watchrepairtalk.com/forum/23-introduce-yourself-here/ Closing this thread to prevent further confusion
  20. 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.
  21. @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
  22. 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
  23. I have an MKS set and a Bergeon set. The MKS set is probably twice or thrice as old as the Bergeon set but the quality is outstanding. The Bergeon punches are prone to oxidisation (near every one has rust and pitting - even replacements from cousins). The MKS punches are as good as new - same storage conditions. If I had to purchase another staking set now - MKS all the way. The only thing I like about the Bergeon set is the inverto function. But I generally still use the MKS punches even if I'm using the Bergeon tool. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
