  1. 2836-2 Stem Release Button

    Stick the emery onto a flat piece of wood or plastic such as a lollipop stick. This will help keep the end of the tube square. Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can get a new 955 with date ring on eBay for £20-25 If you want a challenge you can get 15 TAG branded 955s for £30 but these need repair. Either option is a better start than your acid eaten wreck. For tools you need a jewellers loupe, hands free in some form. A decent set of screwdrivers will be you friends (not a £1 set). Some wooden tooth picks, tweezers, cotton buds, isopropyl alcohol, movement clamp should get you going. If you like quartz movements then a quartz tester at about £30 is a good thing. My greetings to you from NE England. It's a great hobby and a great bunch of people on here. Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. You'll not get much precision out of the watchmakers lathe pictured. Not until you have the motor and the headstock at the same end of the bed! Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Rado's Movement Repair?

    In terms of knowledge per $ you've done pretty well! We all make bad buys in the beginning (I still do) just learn from it. Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Anybody here from Ireland

    Not a jeweller but watch repairer. Somebody with a workshop up a flight of dusty wooden stairs. Have a look on www.bhi.co. uk Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Rado's Movement Repair?

    A Seiko (Hattori) PC21a is less than 5 GBP on eBay. Just do a search. Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    These watches don't use a specialised movement. Any competent watch repairer should be able to do the job. Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cheaper in Poundworld! Also work on stainless steel. They are in the nail beauty section as they are intended for shaping and buffing nails (fingers or toes). Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Introduction and first questions

    Stainless steel rusts quite readily when in contact with mild steel and moisture. I doubt if that has happened here but stainless is not as resistant to chemical attack as you might think. Cheers Neil
