  1. Sigma SM-8810

    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

  3. 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
  5. Problems with polishing a watch case

    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
  7. 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

    Before I look for it, is it on steel? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Yeah that's what I use. With a firm calico mop. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Do you have a dremel drill that you can attach a small buffing wheel to? Or a proper polishing motor? Really that will give you the best final finish. One of the many compounds you can use on these buffing wheels is Hyfin. It's great for steel. Not sure about the paste you mentioned, are you going to rub this in by hand?

    Ishima, I don't think Measuretwice is in doubt about the final outcome. It is clearly working for you. What he does doubt (as do I) is that you are "moving" stainless steel surfaces at low melting points. As a jewellery designer that works with silver and gold, I can move that metal with various compounds. With stainless however, I NEED to take down that metal to remove scratches or weld heavy dings and holes and refinish. I really need to see this technique in action to believe it. Can you upload a video on YouTube and send a link? I'm always curious about finishing so you've got my attention. [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
