  1. Hi, it looks like the machine is out of sync , instructions on how to fix will be on the manual if I recall which is online . Have done this a few times , involves taking off the cover and changing the arm location to hit switches that lift and drop. One thing to think about is how did it happen. This can happen if the arm doesn't high enough or got caught, this could mean it needs hydraulic fluid and could mean a leak.. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  6. I have a old lemania chrono with a missing jewel. It looks like the hole diameter is 28 using the seitz guage and I have found a jewel (with wrong hole size that goes in well that is 1.32mm. Therefore looking for a jewel around 1.32 outside diameter with a 0.28 hole. Looking at cousins they only do a outside diameter of 1.30 or 1.40.. They happen to be obsolete (great) to try them anyway but am I correct in thinking that if the 1.30 doesn't work I will have to get a 1.40 and modify the hole of the plate ? Hope the above makes sense. Thanks in advance . J
  7. Interested in that technology you use to make them, they look good
  8. any progress on this? - interested to see the result
  9. Very interested in how you get on. That part could likely be replaced with a thumbscrew maybe ? To make it more realistic print a cap over it . One of my projects on my printer was to do similar but NB haven't got enough time as I would like to to play around with this. Please let us know how you get on.

  11. Hi all, unfortunately ,my varinatic packed up yesterday so I need to use my backup . It's a old Elam. It works apart from some buzzing on the motor. The thing does not switch off and playing with the in off switch I get a hint of burning. I would like to replace the switch , as I'm not a electrics guy. Can anyone tell me what type of switch will work on this machine ? Also is there a way I can clean up the motor? Thanks in advance .
  12. hi there, i am currently working on this watch at the moment (or shall is say over the last 3 years ) - everything was broken on it!. I have sourced the second hand last year and yes it is extremely extended, i will take a look at where i source it. The brass collar may work depending on your skill level on that accepts the hand and then fits into to pinion.
  13. I would put your 7750 aside and take some cheaper o watches and practice in them first, balances can be tricky, however only way to learn is to practice. Was a few years before I started on 7750s
