  1. Hi my friends. I saw WRT video in youtube. It's so helpful to me. Thank you Watch Repair Channel. After watching video, I'm looking for watch repair oil and grease. I want know what oil & grease need to beginner. In addition, I want know what oil &grease used in video (7s26 repiar video). If anyone knew about that, help my work. I will very appreciate any information or links. Thank you to read my poor writing.
  2. Hi Fellow People, Im reaching out as I’m currently learning all I can about watchmaking, and am working through the BHI distance learning technicians course, with my exam booked for May. I will need to service a quartz watch as part of my practical exam, and am learning about watch lubrication. A few months ago I found a great article that covered the technique for dipping and collecting the right amount of oil on the oiler, such as the speed and angle of the dip, however, I now can’t find it anywhere, no matter how much I search the internet Does anyone have or can point me in the right direction of instructions specifically on oil collection on the oiler? As you will know there is lots on the actual oiling process but not the oil collection process. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Bethan
  3. Hello! As stupid as it sounds: how do I oil the mainspring in a clock? I got Moebius 8200 for that. Thank you, Bogdan
  4. Hello. I am considering buying a bottle of fixodrop and I found that there are many options regarding the quantity. Since I am hobbyist watchmaker, I don't service a watch very often.(Couple of them in a month) In this case, would it be okay to purchase the smallest amount of fixodrop(1ml)? One more thing. Is there anything else I should get to apply the fixodrop to my pallet fork?
  5. Hello all, I'm about to service a Timex 260 electric movement. It's running strong as-is, but I doubt that it has been cleaned or lubricated in its lifetime. I do have the service manual for the movement and for most of the oil points, the SM calls for Moebius Synt-A-Lube, without specifying a product number (I intend to use Moebius 9010), but for the friction pinion the manual calls for "spreading type oil" (Woods AAAA oil). I cannot find a cross-reference for this old Woods oil and most watch oils are, of course, specifically formulated to NOT spread... so, I'm seeking advice and suggestions for a suitable oil to use on the friction pinion. Also, if anyone thinks that 9010 is NOT appropriate to use for the various other points, please let me know. Thanks much! Ben
  6. Hello all, I'm new to this forum and very new to the hobby of watch repair. I am starting to build up a small collection of 'essential' tools needed to properly take apart and reassemble mechanical watches. In my tool collection thus far I have: set of various size screw drivers, (some custom made by me), hand puller, hand levers (I prefer these), hand press (home made), movement holder / vice (home made), stainless steel tweezers, brass tweezers and plastic tweezers (all lovingly honed to shape so that I can pick up a hair). So you can immediately see I have a very important tool missing - the oiler. Donald de Carle briefly explains how to make one, but is it worth it, or should I just buy a set on ebay for a fiver? Also, I am slightly confused as I have read in some books that the oiler is 'spade' shaped, and other reference it as being 'wish-bone' shaped. I think the latter is home made from an sewing needle, and the tip of the eye is ground off, hence the wish-bone shape? Could anyone please advise the best type for a novice like me to start off with? Also, for the purpose of practicing stripping, cleaning, reassembling and lubricating - is there a single grade oil I could use? I realize that if I were servicing a watch properly, then I would need to use several expensive types oil for different locations in the movement, but for now is there a single oil I could get away with for simplicity, and staged learning. Thank you all in advance. Regards, Deggsy.
  7. Mark, I notice in your watch videos that you use Moebius oils of different numbers, which I presume refer to their grades of viscosity. Am I right in this assumption - and are there general rules for oil viscosity or density for particular parts of a movement?
