uuhh boy....you got a few days just to discuss:
fundamentals of operating a lathe including safety
nomenclature of a lathe
what kind of lathe and their uses
lathe tooling-for wood or metalwork
lathe specialties-WATCHMAKING and watch repair; MINIATURE lathes
why sticking a loupe in your eye socket is not a natural feeling
why doing miniature lathe work while wearing an eye loupe just ain't any fun
obsolete lathes and tooling related to watchmaking and repair
USED lathes, tooling
Chinesium (ha) machinery
buying a lathe, tooling
buying a miniature lathe, tooling....
Can engine or benchtop lathes and associated tooling be used for watchmaking, Repair? ("yes, but....")
making your own tooling, gravers for watchmaking and repair
types of steel to make watchmaking and repair lathe tooling
bench grinders, sharpening and honing stones, cutting oils
ANGLES and RELIEF grinding and polishing in relation to lathe tooling
get my drift? some of those I kinda made up, but as a long time apprenticed, journeyman machinist, I kinda didn't.(did that make any sense?) just going thru my head I made up the titles but I think you get the idea. it's ALOT to try and cover here, and alot for you to think about. impossible? heck no. just a lot. maybe narrow down the questions you might have to start? hell I wouldn't even know where to begin!
did i steer you away from wanting to do watch repair lathe work? hope not!
