  1. AS ST Seems to stand for AS Standard, if this is your movement: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&AS_1950, Then Lepsi lists the lift angle at 52
  2. I've used Internationaldialco in Ohio, USA. You will hear a lot of people speak highly of them, but they have gone through a change of ownership in the last year or so, and I've heard mixed reviews since. I got this Zenith dial refinished just after Christmas, I think they did an OK but not amazing job, the lacquer had was a bit blotchy, kind of like it reacted with the surface, and some of the printing is a bit blotchy under a loupe. Judge for yourself with the before and after pics

  4. I used a very fine knife to cut out for the buckle attachment... But a punch would be a better job, all depends on the kind of buckle you use. Dusty from sanding, cutting, shaving and burnishing. Little flecks of leather get everywhere.
  5. I used to make some leather straps too. But it's dusty work, and I don't have a second workspace for it, so I've pretty much stopped doing it.
  6. Increasing industrialization (resulting in increasing emissions) has allowed much more productive agriculture, which has allowed us to support ever growing populations
  7. Shellac also secures the roller/impulse jewel to the roller table on the balance assembly. Zippo lighter fluid/Naptha is commonly used and won't dissolve Shellac
  8. So sorry to hear it OH, sorry for your loss
  9. I really like this book too, it covers a lot of ground and is very well written. I visited the horological society of New York last year and they have Henry's old bench and some of his tools in their office! They also gave me this book while I was there.
  10. Very cool, is there an equivalent Seiko caliber to this? At first I thought it was a 66B
  11. Nice idea, seems a bit fiddly to keep the pins parallel to each other though
  12. I Googled "Timex Easy Reader watch glow" out of interest, and that dark spot seems to be characteristic to the watch!
  13. Here's an excerpt from The Watch Repairer's Manual by Henry B. Fried. He uses a round bottom punch
