  4. gasoline has no place for watch cleaning. it can be used for paint thinner with enamel, it can be used as a first clean on a clock mvt., (the clock will run when submerged in gasoline). then wash it off with a garden hose. AND don't smoke around gasoline. vin

  7. if you are new to running a lathe, use a 3 jaw, jacobs' and collets. most nubies are afrade of a 4 jaw because it takes much more time to get it "on center". with some experience, a 4 jaw can be put on center in15 seconds.
  8. they made a plastic dial caliper. amazingly acurate. i use it for batterys and rough work. vin
  9. "nothing new here" for many years there have been pressure gauges - oil filled to stop rust. i think not used in submarines. i have bought many used watches swamped with oil or wd - 40 . vin
