    Hello from the Pocono mountains in PA.

    Hi Tom! Good folks on here and lots of knowledge. There are some very good pros, and plenty of amatuers like me. You'll notice some familiar faces here I'm sure. Steve from Berks Co. PA Sent from my GT-P5113 using Tapatalk

    not sure this goes under repair.

    Have a look at this thread, I think there's a photo of my setup, and several others too. https://www.watchrepairtalk.com/index.php?/topic/4415-Watch-Case-Radial-Lapping-Source-?

    Very nice, my favorite variation of the 6138. I'd like to have one someday. Sent from my GT-P5113 using Tapatalk

    Watch Case Radial Lapping Source ?

    Here's one that I did for@ramrod I should have done a little more with the bezel on this one.

    Watch Case Radial Lapping Source ?

    @bobm12 , I've never seen the horotec item. I'll search for it and have a look.

    Watch Case Radial Lapping Source ?

    Bob- the white disc shown in the photo is an adapter to hold the case. It's made as a slight interference fit with the case ID, with a shoulder that registers on the back of the case, and a notch milled in it for the crown tube. The material is nylon so there's no chance of marring the case. I'll probably make some internal expanding collets at some point, but this system works well for me.

    Here's my lapping rig, I think I've posted pictures here before. It works. I mostly do my own projects, never really solicited outside work, although forum member@ramrod talked me into doing a few cases.

    Seiko 7009

    I'll bet that was an exciting few seconds. I'm working on a 7019 right now, very similar to your 7009. The main differences are in the calendar side and a few extra jewels. I'm taking a break from it this evening because I have to make a mainspring winder. I have a nice one that I made for the Seiko 6xxx series, but the 7xxx barrel is a bit smaller so it won't work. They also wind in different directions relative to the barrel opening so I need to make an intermediate ring to press the spring into, then from there into the barrel. If you haven't already, I suggest you watch Mark's recent video on servicing the 7s26. It's very informative as usual, and most of it will apply to the 7009. I think he's posting part 2 on Friday.

    Resources for the beginner

    No affiliation but I've had good results with Wm McCaw co. In Toledo, OH.
  13. Here's the one I have, looks like it's over $20 now but still well worth it in my opinion. http://www.harborfreight.com/deluxe-airbrush-kit-95810.html Good luck and let us know how it goes. Steve
  14. Bob, here's a helmet I painted with the HF airbrush. It works fine. Can't beat it for the money in my opinion.
