  2. You can use the mic part of iPhone headphones as well, plugged into your computer. There are tricks to boost the mic if you are running windows 10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I see the same as I just turned 60 and now wish I could start again and become a watchmaker when I was 15. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. You can buy a software computer Timegrapher which should be good enough. I bought etimer. Not cheap but really good and all you need is a computer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. A palate fork jewel requires a special tool to hold the palate fork in place to heat the palate fork and melt the shellac. I have replaced many impulse jewels and have made a few videos on YouTube on how to do it. Search for jdrichard01 on YouTube. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  10. The watch will be together today for a test, then I still need to strip and clean it. I have 5 lathes with countershafts, on Borel Stands and 5 conventional desk mount. All vintage. The Lathe I used was a Boley and Lienen. With a collet holding Micrometer tailstock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  12. Funny. I like the challenge, plus it would cost 20 bucks for the new part and my labour is free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Audio does not seem to work so go to my YouTube channel JD Richard. Or jdrichard01 search Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Video on Replacing a third wheel pinion on a Waltham Pocket Watch. The pinion and shaft/arbor are one piece of steel so a lathe and patience is required. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
