  1. A journey in sorrow

    Welcome to the forum. Here you'll find really great people who are willing to help at any time.
  2. So far so good for me. As I said, I don't use it much really, so for the once in a while use, it works fine, even if I'll have to buy another one after a year or two, I may buy a bit better but it still cheaper than putting a few hundreds of dollars on a professional machine, unless I'll have to use it once a day or so.
  3. for the small parts, such as hands, crowns, screws etc. I use this basket (I've gotten one at the local Dollar Store), which I removed the chain off, and it works really well. My basket is a bit bigger than the hight of the machine and I kind of squeeze it with the cover which is no problem at all. As for the bigger parts, I just put them on the bottom and let the machine do its works. I do not have any experience with any professional machine nor really have a need for at this time (something that same me money and space). the machine comes with two power 30w and 50w and I use the 50w for the longest time possible (30 minutes) and sometimes for watches that I tend to buy at the flea market or get from friends, I double the time and give it two rounds. Do not waste your money with Esslinger unless for items that you can't find any other place. A ) Ultrasonic Machine from AE B ) Basket
  4. Note the working environment that this man is working at.
  5. Just for fun. This Filippino watch repairer was developing this fan with clock mechanism for about 20 years and register a patent for it, as he explaining it to the clerk. Enjoy it.

  8. Movement Ultra-sonic cleaning

    I have this cheap Chinese ultrasonic cleaner which is doing a pretty good job for me. Remember, as long as you don't have many watches as a beginner in my opinion with this cheap and small cleaner, you will save money and more so space, something that many tend to forget about, but take in consideration that it has a small container if it makes a difference for you. Otherwise, when you'll get so much work/repair then get a better one.
  9. Movement Ultra-sonic cleaning

    Good to know about the Horolene. Thanks.
  10. It's pretty thin, and so far (with my little experience) it opened up all casebacks with no problem.
  11. I use this from China, and so far I haven't gotten any problems with it.
  12. Wouldn't it be too sharp to use on a watch?
  13. keep up the good work.
  14. Optics for repair work

    BTW: Any suggestion on any microscopes that seems to be good for watch repairs?
  15. If you are serious and not just teasing. We have many here who will repair this watch or another with great care. I guess that it'll help if you specify which models you need to be cared for.
