  1. You have probably sourced the material but heres my 3 pennies worth. I think it is cordierite honeycomb block. We used this stuff in the metallurgy lab where I worked. Hope it helps.
  2. Totally agree VWatchie it is the content and as far as I can see you have surpassed what can be classified as quality content. Thank you. What I meant to say is I have a long way to go before I reach your level.
  3. Congrats VWatchie 500 posts I've got a long way to go!
  4. Thanks Nichod. I'll check further into the vid for sound. Do you have a time readout for that?
  5. HI VWatchie Just to let you know not yet had the time to check the date wheel issue. Soon as I get some free time I'll have a go at it and I'll keep you posted. Cheers all the best
  6. Thanks CLB. As I do like Rolex watches although I prefer Omega coaxial, very frustrating to have a bent balance staff on such a classic watch. Did you see the original bent staff? Was it replaced? If so the repairer should have shown you the bent one. Did you see it? The oils drying out would take quite some time as the oils used are of a very high quality. How old is the the watch? When I viewed Marks strip down of the Rolex GMT master Mark pointed out that the movement had been over oiled. This could be another possible cause for the inetermittent stopping. I hope you get this sorted. Please keep us posted on developments.
  7. To be fair JDM I have to admit I did not scroll down to Tools in the Topic drop down and the lack of the word 'else' didn't help. Cheers though.
  8. No Problem JDM thank you for the heads up. As you can probably tell I an still not site familiar. Probing an hair spring when it is slightly distorted particularly in the case of pocket watches. I needed something that was stiff enough but thin enough to manipulate the spring.
  9. I needed a tool for probing hair springs. I could not find one so I made one. Here are the pics. Materials:- Handle - Brass 5mm hex Probe wire - 0.3mm stainless steel from a wire brush. Drilled a 0.4 mm hole and Haroldited the probe wire in the handle. All anti magnetic.
  10. Hi JDM Its this one:- https://www.watchrepairlessons.com/2020/02/03/patron-live-stream-3-3rd-feb-2020-rolex-gmt-master-ii-stripdown-pt-2/
  11. I have a ladies 'Date Just' to service that has a date problem. The date shows only half of the numeric in the window between days so the date wheel seems out of sync somehow. The watch has been looked at by other repairers but no joy. I am looking forward to finding out what the problem is. Marks strip down of the Rolex has been very useful. Thanks Mark!
  12. Hi all I am not getting sound on Marks 2nd Rolex vid. Anyone had this? Usually when Mark is not commenting we get background music. Just wondering if there is a problem. Cheers
