  1. Thanks clockboy , I do have this document , just need some detailed pictures to see if there is a part omissions in the front switch as I don't understand what it actually does! Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  2. I've actually got quite far, have managed to get hydraulics sorted and the synchronisation. On to the ultrasonics. Now the ultrasonics light did not come on, the fan kicks in so the switch is working that starts the ultrasonics. The bulb light up for a few seconds and died. I have found a replacement and am waiting for it. However the dial control looks to not being doing anything at all. Does some one have a pic of the underneath with that bit in particular. I want to make sure nothing is missing as I do not see how it would do anything as it looks like a loose switch ( bit at the front) Thanks in advance Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  4. So my main issue is obtaining the fluid , any idea where I can obtain some ? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  5. That's what I believe is part of the issue, can I ask where you get it from , I'm assuming algo will have some ? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  6. I will do, when I get around to tinkering with it Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  7. So I have acquired a very best up L&R varimatic. I have only spent a few minutes with it as I've been busy with other bits but of the top of my head the following is not working Arm does not raise high enough ( understand some replacement fluid and some bleeding will hopefully resolve this) The ultrasonic himself when it should be working however no light just some noise ( hoping it's the replaceable bulb thingy) The timings all off, it spins when it's high but then only a few seconds in the jars. I've found the manual online. I need to find out what suitable fluid is used for this machine and the best way to bleed it without the cup. Any other tips will be appreciated , I know.little about electronics bit that won't stop me from having a go. I'll post some progress when I get a chance to work on it.

    well if you are intent on a challenge... make a new plate!
  9. its more the skill to be fair, ive seen people in the watch world make pieces with make shift tools. that was the mistake a few years ago i made, spent a load of money on tools, but was lacking the skill. However... stunning piece of kit you have there,
  10. Hi guys, looking for a source for a crown and two pushers for a tag Carrera cv2011 Many thanks UK based if that makes a difference , cousins have some generics which is fine but was hoping they would have a like for like job number , so not sure which ones to get as I don't have the watch to hand Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  11. The problem with cutting is that you need to cut enough to clean the dial bit not enough that it won't reach the pivot. I would be inclined to get a replacement as you never know the next dial you want may have the hole. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

    5700 Type Back Opener

    They come together on the base and the case fits in between then, usually in between the lugs giving a firm hold on the case so the top part can unscrew the back They would sit where the white circular pins are in that picture Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

    My first balance staff!

    well done, if only i could figure out how to sharpen my gravers i would be attempting this myself!
  14. Quick and dirty way will be two points of tweezers and twist. Or pegwood Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  15. As for the balance spring , I would suggest one dip or an alternative degreaser, you shouldn't need much more than that. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
