  1. Mainspring winder for Seiko 7S26

    I’ve found that for some Seiko mainspring it’s best to use a combination of one handle and another drum. The appropriate size drum has too wide of a post. Anyway, my 2 cents. May just have to do it by hand... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I can't remove this last wheel!

    £70 may be better than crimping the pinion while trying to pull it off and then having to either buy another one if still available or spend some effort in restoring it. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    @rogart63 Sorry I missed the point initially. These tweezers come with mirror finish out of the box. They are filed under hand specific pickups. Perfectly rounded. It feels super safe to handle hands without he fear of scratching them at all. I don’t use them for anything else to keep them in good shape. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lol You mean my fingerprints allova? [emoji6] EDIT: sorry I missed the tip part... I’ve not done anything to it. So far working perfectly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This is the extent of my Pick-up armamentarium. Next is tweezers to manipulate cap jewels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh, I love them! Perfect weight and action for me. Those two items are my daily baseline tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Tweezers with special tips

    Any watchtool distributer. It’s a common item. I got it from Cas-Ker.@Ishima It’s about $30 but it will last for a long long time. It’s provided as a peg wood stick and you’ll need a polishing wheel to sharpen one end and the second flatten like a screw driver Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pretty much any contact with parts and movement that doesn’t require picking up. You can use it as counter pressure to pick something with the other hand, when you get a bridge installed and all pivots are engaged you hold it down with the plexi while you get the first screw in, etc etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes!! That’s it, ASCO highly recommended. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh, the other “investment” should be a plexi stick. I wasn’t a believer and was using wood and the red one that flakes! Since I got the plexi it doesn’t leave my left hand [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Definitely recommend investing in good brass pickups. Safest to do most of your work with them until you get to specialized tasks. I love the one I recently got for hand manipulation, I think F type but don’t quote me on that. I keep the cheapo ones for force work like replacing chrono springs and such.

  14. Fully charged movement not starting

    Yes, clean and lubricate. Now’s a good time to check the movement. Wind up the ratchet wheel and if it goes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Fully charged movement not starting

    I’d say that may be the culprit. When you washed it, it probably wasn’t cleaned there. The force needed to spin may not be much to your finders but it’s insurmountable to the movement. I suggest you work on removing CO and wheels associated, wash them well and try again. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
