  1. Nice job on the bow. I'll have to go after some of mine some day. Do you have one of those fancy bow end cutters?
  2. Very nice. Would that happen to be an original strap? Almost looks like the illustration, remarkable if it was.
  3. Agree with @oldhippy It would be great to see the movement.
  4. Yes, the lever should ride in the groove. This lever stops the movement when the stem is pulled out (hacking).
  5. You can always the the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. That group seems to be pocket watch central in the US. They have a business directory that is located here - https://net.nawcc.org/nawcc/businesssearch/ They also have forums etc.
  6. Cas-Ker has one that I thought looked interesting. Should mention that I don't have one yet, but it is on the shopping list. https://www.jewelerssupplies.com/benchtop-polisher-470.115.html
  7. I'm not sure that there is an effective cleaner that meets your requirements. Best to not breath the fumes, no matter what it is. Check local regulations as to what can and cannot be disposed of through the sewer. In many places, cleaners and degreasers have to be treated as hazardous waste, which may mean saving the used fluids and dropping them off at a collection point. A great "fume hood" is the exhaust fan found over many stoves and ovens, if you're lucky enough to have such a thing. Otherwise, an open window and a fan might do in a pinch. The jars that I use originally had Newman's Own Salsa in them. Just watch the lids, some cleaners can dissolve the material that's in the cap that's used as a seal.
  8. Thanks @oldhippy, I noticed after I created this post that some changes had happened. I think things will be just fine, and I certainly appreciate all the work that goes into maintaining this forum. Thanks again!
  9. Yep. I did that, going through that exercise was very much worth it. With repetition, hat seemed impossible at first eventually became just difficult. :-)
  10. Yikes! That's not good. Glad you mentioned it.
  11. Thanks JDM, I've watched you deal unmercifully with spammers, and applauded from my chair. Although I found that I didn't agree with some of your approaches, they where the lesser part of what an admin does, and your constant attention to the forum helped it quite a bit. Admin is a thankless job, and it's not often obvious what goes on until it's not happening anymore. Hope the other admins can take up the slack. Thanks Again!
