  1. Excellent. Thank you for your experiments and research. Do you think the balance complete and pallet fork will be ok with acetone as a rinse?
  2. Is acetone ok for quick rinsing the balance complete and pallet fork?
  3. Texas Don, what kind of alcohol or strength of alcohol are you referring to. Does this include common drug store $2.00 isopropyl alcohol.
  4. No. In a way I’m glad! Isopropyl alcohol is plentiful, safe, and inexpensive. Can I use acetone be used to rinse and dry pallets and balance complete? I also hear Simply Green is a good and safe product to use for all the parts including the pallets. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I was surprised when you said that naphtha, isopropyl alcohol, mineral spirits, etc. didn’t affect the shellac on the pallets. These are petroleum based products and solvents, aren’t they?.
  6. Nice. I’ll remember the Shout. We use it a lot with our laundry.
  7. I use a small u/s cleaner that I bought from Walmart. It has two compartments. I bought the jewelry cleaner that’s sold with it and it does a good job. It really does a good job on metal bands. I use small glass jars to put the parts in so I have everything together while cleaning and rinsing. I wouldn’t recommend the small round mesh baskets. Parts like small screws and click springs can get hung up in them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I use acetone for cleaning and rinsing. i don’t use it on the the pallet fork for fear of it dissolving the shellack holding the pallet stones in the fork.
  9. l haven’t used mine yet but it was advertised to have a working height of 8 inches which is great for me.
  10. The rubber ball uses friction. The ball is slightly deflated to cover the entire case cover. You’ll have to press down against the cover really hard and give it a lot of umphhh. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Elevation speaking, when working on watches should the microscope be used on top of the watch bench or on top of a standard desk? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. I don’t have a grinder/polisher but I can look into the cape cod cloth. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What is recommended for cleaning and polishing gold plated watches? I bought a polishing cloth for gold at Walmart and it does an okay Job. Is there a good product that is safe for the finish?
