  1. Welcome to the forum! I'm from Ireland but living in Copenhagen
  2. Thanks very much for the offer! I did get a quote from Dumet, which was reasonable, but the used bench worked out a lot cheaper.
  3. Do you have a jeweling tool to adjust the height of the jewel? I would think it should be flush with the mainplate
  4. Picked up this Caravelle Superdatomatic, with a Cattin calibre C66 in need of a new balance staff and a new crystal
  5. It's mind boggling how little you get for €1000 in the world of watches. Not sure where you're based JDM, but Beco make a pretty basic model here: https://www.beco-technic.com/einrichtungen/werktische-fuer-uhrmacher-417/ergolift-mobile.html Also Flume: https://www.flume.de/en/tools-supplies-facilities-compressed-air-and-vacuum-watchmaker-tables-design-without-containers.html https://www.flume.de/en/tools-supplies-facilities-compressed-air-and-vacuum-watchmaker-tables-vector-variable-arm-rest.html None of which got back to me with a quote... so I went for my eBay special There is another on Ebay.de if anyone else is on the lookout! https://www.ebay.de/itm/Uhrmacher-Werktisch-alt-gebraucht/223650865631?hash=item3412a161df:g:HpQAAOSwYFdc3Fs7
  6. CousinsUK quoted me £250 just for shipping on the Durston bench! So I started looking at other options... Just bought this bench on eBay from Germany! Absolutely delighted with the find
  7. Great job! What kind of setup did yo use for nickle plating? The finish looks perfect
  8. Welcome to the forum! That's a beautiful Speedmaster
  9. Thanks for the reply OH! I'll be keeping an eye out for a used bench. My brother is a cabinet maker, so eventually I will ask him to make my dream bench, but he is so busy now I would feel bad to ask him this favour.
  10. Mosquitos! #1 thing about living in Ireland/what I will miss, is that we just don't have them! Glovebox sounds cool but from my experience the full length gloves get very sweaty. Maybe a modified sandblasting cabinet could work too?
  11. Hi all, I've just moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, and rather than buy another generic desk and put extendable legs on it, I would like to invest in a nice sturdy bench with armrests, drawers etc. So far the best option I can see for my budget (<€800), is the 5 draw Durston option on CousinsUK: https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/watchmakers-benches-durston Does anyone have any experience with this bench? Or have any other recommendations for a nice cheap-ish bench? Thanks in advance!

  13. Great! Same stem release setup as in the video so. Best of luck!
  14. A picture would help now that you have the case opened. In the Seiko I had with a similar case I believe to one side of the dial there was a lever to release the stem, the dial and movement could then be removed from the caseback. Yours may be different though
  15. Don't pry this one! See the little square cutouts on one side of the case (highlighted in the picture below) these correspond to small meal springs built into the caseback, which can be seen in the right side on your photo, push these in towards the inside of the watch with a screwdriver and this will allow the caseback to lift out from this side
