For me its more of a general shop resource vs watch specific - something to be pursued if you like making things. I've not yet thought of any watch uses that it would just perfect for, but in general it opens up a lot of possibilities
I bought a Prusa recently, it was supposedly highly rated.... look at all the useful stuff I've made! What a disaster!
Anyway, I'm down on this crappy printer, I do keep working on trying to solve the bugs, as the potential capabilities it brings to the shop are really quite exciting. Prusa griping aside, check out the second image - a yoke for a dynamic balancer I'm making. A part like that would be near impossible except by casting and a pattern. Aside from making a pattern and doing a casting being a huge amount of owrk, its also unlike a casting in that you specific the "fill" percentage so items end up very strong and light - there's no other way to do things like that (3rd photo of partially printed parts so you can see the fill). In the photo its a 25% fill - interior is only 25% material
good show, you did good by not removing the balance till the main spring was let down. "no pallets in this design!" a watch "with pallets" it is proper to remove the ballance before spring let down. keep up the good work. vin
Hi fellow Clockmakers,
Would a bureau desk work as a clock/watchmaker desk? Not high enough (could be solved) or stable enough? I could fetch one of these from facebook around 30-40 pounds.
I like the idea because it would be more or less child and dustproof as you can close and lock the whole thing.
