How do you do.
I'm Frank from Aberdeen, up in the north east of Great Britain.
I'm an engineer by profession mostly telecommunications in the space and telco industries with some work in European technical civil service.
I don't do any hands on work at work but I keep my hand in during my spare time with electronics repairs, including surface mount technologies. I've also an interest in botany. I'm struggling a bit without a stereomicroscope.
I've some old watches to repair including a Tag Heuer SEL quartz (955.112) whose bracelet broke. I then put it aside forgetting to take the battery out, it leaked, the watch is now dead on the movement holder with the date ring turned to hard melted plastic. I'll be looking for guidance on cleaning it up and replacing, perhaps repairing the movement.
My ex-neighbour is a watchmaker but I haven't seen him around his shop of late.
I'll also be posting a bit about tools and equipment. I don't have that many watches to justify massively kitting up but many tools will come in handy for electronics, hacking etc.
