  1. Try looking for a company that does alternator rewinds or a competent Auto. Electrician in your local area. They might be able to help you with advice or sugest an alternative small electric motor that could be used without breaking the bank. I've had a few alternators and starter motors for old motorcycles refurbished with brushes replaced locally over the years for a reasonable cost. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  2. My friend, I see nothing negative about my comments. If the observation that I, and others have made, that the OP blades are not hollow ground are at odds with your view, then it doesn't make it a negative comment. I politely request that you just agree to disagree and draw this thread to a conclusion. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  3. My pleasure. There was a further PDF on the site as well which I confess I didn't read. May be worth your while registering with them to see if the other document was of any use to you. Cheers NAD Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  4. To me, the OP blade are not hollow ground. As such he'll not need to buy an expensive tool like that at this stage of the learning process. Regards NAD Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  5. I've never owned or used one but found the attached on the NAWCC site which hopefully will be useful to you. There's also a few threads on it's use on that site as well so I'd consider joining. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  6. Welcome Tom Nice introduction. As you're finding out, Mark's experience makes it look straight forward. Don't give up though, it's a rewarding hobby once you've cracked it Keep safe. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  7. Hi Watcher OP's pic's of his blades don't look to me to be hollow ground. Perhaps you could enlighten us with your observation of the need for that particular tool? Thank you. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  8. Bore da. Have a gander at the following to give you an idea :- There are others on there that illustrates, some by members of this forum. Take care. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  9. For restoration, I use Briwax applied with 0000 wire wool. Stinks to high heaven but the results are worth it. (Best after a light rub over with white spirit.) Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk

  12. Afternoon Phil and welcome. Originally from the Valleys myself but moved to a drier part of the UK a while ago now. What sort of watches do you favour? Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  13. Mbk Some really good advice from all who's contributed already. I find myself in a similar position to you with the family long case clock, see earlier posts where OH was very helpful in dating the clock. We differ in that I've been "playing about" with watches for some time before the clock came into my possession. I've also lately been doing some clock work on mantle clocks of varying degree of complication. Been enjoying working on the clocks but I'll not be touching the family clock for a while longer, at least until I've learned some more, and have significantly more space to work in. Everything is significantly bigger in the long case clock than the half dozen Elliott's that I'm currently working my way through. Enjoy the journey. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  14. Thought it was a temporary hand that came with the new movement to be honest. Don't do too many movement swaps to be honest but I seem to remember something similar from one I did in a Rotary I worked on some time ago. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
  15. Been using them for a while watchmaking as a hobby. Think I read on the Cousins site a while back that they are Seiko batteries which was good enough for me. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk
