Hi gurus, I have picked apart my first actual watch (although a cheap one I bought for this purpose), and am preparing to clean and oil it. For the mainspring, I am however not comfortable with how I'm supposed to clean it and could use some help! I have an L&R style cleaner that rotates through three jars, and below is the picture of the bottom basket and the mainspring. My question is: do I simply coil the mainspring into the basket or do I need to clean it "old style" with a piece of paper and oil? I believe Mark said in a video that he puts the spring in the bottom basket of his machine? -- Thanks, Stian
