  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

  3. That's a new setup to me, I'd getting fast it may be because that hairspring is now too short Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  5. Sure Attached are pics of the mainplate , thanks in advance 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
  14. ultrasonics Binned now!! Respomses bit too late but thank you!! Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  15. Fixed the rest I'll use that and be in the lookout for a ultrasonic add-on Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  16. Yep replaced valve, then capacitor s blew Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  17. 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
  18. 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

  20. So my main issue is obtaining the fluid , any idea where I can obtain some ? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  21. 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
  22. I will do, when I get around to tinkering with it Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
