  1. I will take it you will have a relatively small tank (3-5 litre) so you will need only a very small amount. I use only a capful and that small bottle lasts for ages. So yes clean tap water and throw in a capful. Run the Sonics to stir it all up. If your tank has a heater, wait for it to get hot before cleaning your pieces. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  2. Hi. I use this stuff and it's fantastic! After introducing it to my colleague, they are now using it too! https://www.coleparmer.co.uk/i/cole-parmer-micro-90-cleaning-solution-1-liter-bottle/1810005 I've used cleaning agents like Flash diluted in water but not as good as the stuff above. Enjoy the world of sonics [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Firstly, Happy New Year to all! I would like to know if anyone has or owned the above pressure tester. If so, have you ever sent it to Switzerland for a service? I think mine is due for one. The hood bolts no longer engage during the test. I can no longer test at 200m. Even 100m can be erratic at times. I can't get a print out of the test either. It definitely a tester issue and not the watches. I've used other testers and they have passed. I'm hoping it's not going to be a horrific bill! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Problems with polishing a watch case

    Although technically it's possible, it sounds a little awkward. Your control might not be that great especially if you're trying to support a big hand drill. You need something small yet powerful to control the movement. Control is hugely important. A dremel type device might not be all that powerful, but it's ideal for precision work... Which you need.

    Something like this to go on the dremel. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Yeah, it's not enough I'm afraid. You really need a pendant drill/rotary tool/polishing mop to really attack that surface. If you could get hold of a dremel drill of some type, that would be a step in the right direction. Then get yourself a firm buffing/polishing wheel. Then you need a hard metal polishing compound like Hyfin or the blue colour Luxi bar. Use the compound on the wheel and go over the surface until the scratches are gone.

    Are you using a polishing/buffing wheel or are you just rubbing a cloth onto metal? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Buffing; Myth or Fact?

    So basically all the watch houses known on earth have been doing it and getting it wrong. And the only "correct" way is your inconceivable technique.... Riiight. By the way, I thought you left this group after Mike debunked your technique? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Indeed. For cases with crisp edges, some wet n dry paper on a wood stick is excellent for control. There's always a greater level of risk with grinding burrs or those diamond impregnated rubber burrs. Very easy to over grind. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
