  1. Here is a quick video I made with technique to reduce the thickness of a Seitz 30/200 jewel to fit into the 3rd upper jewel hole on an Elgin pocket watch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Shaving a Jewel

    Turns out if you use a 2000 grit diamond plate, the one I use for sharpening gravers, and you hold the jewel with a short at toothpick that will not go through the hole, you can thin out the jewel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Shaving a Jewel

    I fit a jewel into a plate. It is a Seitz 30/200 (.3mm hole and 2mm diameter). The problem I have is that the jewel is too thick and I think touches the pinion on the third wheel where it’s installed. Is there a way of shaving material off a seitz jewel? Perhaps on a lathe with 2000 grit sandpaper or a burnishing file. Don’t know???? Help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Tool Identification and Use

    Thanks very much. This tool is in excellent condition and I was really curious whit I could use it for. Any pages from your book that would be useful? I will also hunt on eBay for the reference book. Again, thanks from Canada. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  15. I usually put these in by hand very carefully. Takes some time but works. Light oil on it first. I also take it out of the donut it comes in and wind it up in a real mainspring winder...and I have three different brands.Take it out and carefully wind it back in by hand my friend.
