Hey guys, Been a while, real life got in the way of this hobby for a bit. Been watching the brilliant Alex Hamilton's Its about time Channel https://www.youtube.com/@Its_About_Time. One of the tips he mentioned in his videos is to make these pegging tools for jewel holes. I finally got around to it and now I am so ready to do some proper pegging. Wishing you all health, happiness and love this holiday, Happy new year! Stephen
Hello knowledgeable folks. I had a little search but couldn't find this, so sorry if it's been answered before. I'm starting out on the BHI distance learning course and need to get myself tooled up. As a novice I'm a little confused looking at movement holders on Cousins.uk. Could someone please advise me as to what this relates to: "3¾ to 11 ligne" ?? inches I know. mm I know . what is a ligne? I'm hoping to start out on a clock movement from a WWII Messerschmitt ME109 which is 55mm diameter. What size holder will I need? Oh and while I'm here... Is it a special type of wire that you can use around your head to hold an eye loupe to your eye? Many thanks Tim
