  1. This machine has a 8mm. shaft as the Elma. so you can use basketholder from a Elma on this machine! Anyway i have got more glass and baskets for this ...
  2. I got hands on a "small" but very stable drill press. Trapani Rose, made i italy. If you have any information on a drill press like that, please let me know!
  3. Polish them using scotch brite and oil!
  4. How to clean best old watchmaker collets that have a little surface rust and dirt. How do you maintain them generally so they do not rust in the long run .. Thanks Henry
  5. But shut it happen, then you can still buy a new spindle https://www.horia.ch/en/Products/Jewellling-Setting-staking-tools/Jewelling-tools/Accessories/Spindle-9.html Cousins got them as well! https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/horia-jewelling-tool
  6. The light of the Drawbar don't change no mater what the spindle length is... The drawbar shown here is the one that came with the faceplate... I can shurely make it fit the Cowells some how...
  7. Thanks Frank... Yes i think the drawbar is to long. Maby i can make a new none some day. The most important is that the centering arbor fit the Face-plate and im shure that this is the right one. It fits perfect... Im going to us it on my Cowells 90CW lathe, so anyway i might need som changes ...

  9. I'm looking for user manual for an Andrä & Zwingenberger watchmaker Lathe as it showed ... it's especially a section about the Face Plate that I'm looking for. If it exists! I can not figure out how to work with the centerpin and springs. Perhaps it does not fit together?
  10. I found out that you can change the spindle from 4 to 3 mm. and from 3 to 4 mm. https://www.horia.ch/en/Products/Jewellling-Setting-staking-tools/Jewelling-tools/Accessories/Spindle-9.html
  11. Today i think i was the lucky one. I got this one at eBay! Its a 3mm. !!
  12. i asked the same in a facebook group and got this answer from mr. Lass "3mm is the most common. But the 4mm is the same size as in the Seitz jewel pusher, then you can use those ones if you find a cheap seitz set. The horia pushers is around $1000 for a set." if you buy the 4mm. you can use it all by making a kind of bushing...
  13. Doe's Starrett not produce collets anymore. I can not find it anywhere in their directories. Does anyone know anything about it?
  14. Ohh i forgot.. I actually intended to buy a Sincere face plate. as it seems to be the right choice for a Cowell's 90CW as well. Dean DK shows it so well here >>>
