  1. Thank you nicklesilver and Nucejoe. I'll give those suggestions a try. I experienced parts flying out of the cheap ($4), stiff set of tweezers I started with. These tweezers encourage a more delicate touch.
  2. Hello, newbie question here. These tweezers don't open as widely as others I have held from Bergeon, Dumont, Regine, etc... They also require such a light "squeeze" that they slip out of the fingers if not supported from beneath by a 3rd finger. (Bergeon 7421-PM-S5 purchased from a large, well regarded watchmaking/jewelry distributor here in the US) Is this normal? Do they need adjusting? Or, is it better to ask for an exchange/refund? My personal inclination is to tinker with them and try to adjust them myself, but I wanted to check in with you all first. Thank you for any help and
  3. Hello, Nucejoe, and watchweasol. Thank you for the welcome. Watchweasol, thank you for the recommendations. I look forward to digging into them.
  4. Hello, my name is Ben, and I am from the Philadelphia area. I'm a complete novice and very excited to begin tinkering with watches. I have taken apart and reassembled an ETA 6498 a number of times in the last couple of weeks. I look forward to exploring further and learning from you all! Part of my interest was stimulated by reading about the watchmaker Casper ten Boom in "The Hiding Place." I'm now enjoying "Watches Adjustment and Repair" by F.J. Camm. Do you have a favorite watchmaking/repair book that you would recommend? Ben
