  2. Did it originally have an o-ring? I can’t see one in the photos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks Pip and JBerry, very helpful. I’ll get it through Cousins. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks heaps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Well that is disappointing but thank you for tracking that down for me. I haven’t been able to find a parts list for the 7018 (I can for 7016). Could I ask how you tracked down the part number? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hi, I’m struggling to find a replacement hammer for my seiko 7018 and was wondering whether anyone knows if it’s the same as the seiko 7016 movement part. These appear equally difficult to find but at least I could double my chances. I do have one but it is too rusted to use. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Excellent, thanks Oldhippy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks Oldhippy, I’ll see where I can get it from. So far I have washed one watch but used Shelite. Is that no good? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi Chris, A friend and I have restored an L & R Master cleaner. Nearly caught me out when I got it off EBay as someone had replaced the wiring but not up the post (there they were original and out of sight). The cleaner would only rotate in one direction, which was fine but I decided I wanted both directions and rewiring it is when we found the old wiring and it was basically bare. Not sure why the whole body wasn’t live! Just lucky. Anyway, works really well now. What are you thinking of doing? Cheers Ian Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks guys, unfortunately I used a version of the 7S26 method and while I got it open it damaged the barrel somewhat. Thankfully I don't think it is terminal. Having it open I can now see how the 6309 approach would have worked (and will do it in the future for similar barrels). It's all a learning process Thanks again, Ian
  11. Hi, I am trying to clean a Seiko 6205B movement and cannot for the life of me get the barrel open. I have been looking everywhere (scalpel in hand), for somewhere to start prising the barrel apart but there is no obvious join. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Ian
  12. Hi All, Getting feverishly into watches (maybe a bit too much!), and probably out of my depth. I have a mentor who is a thousand steps ahead of me so I am very lucky. I'm finding tools and equipment as enjoyable to source and restore as the watches although waiting on eBay is sometimes a killer. I hope I get to chat with you all at some stage. Cheers, Ian
