  1. 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 .
  2. 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.
  3. 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

  6. Fixed the rest I'll use that and be in the lookout for a ultrasonic add-on Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  8. 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
  9. 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

  11. So my main issue is obtaining the fluid , any idea where I can obtain some ? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  12. 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
  13. I will do, when I get around to tinkering with it Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  14. 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.
