Watch cleaning machine question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

im new to the forum and am considering getting into amateur tinkering. I local resident is selling watch cleaning machines for $100, I could probably get it for less as long as it works. It doesn’t appear to come with the baskets though. My question is are the baskets a universal size? I’ve posted a pic of the machines below

No baskets are not a universal size and vary from maker to maker as do glass jars, I would walk away from those if they do not come with baskets or jars you could probably get a full set up of ebay at only slightly more than that purchasing every thing seperatley can soon add up.

May I ask, how do you currently clean watch parts? Which advantages do you expect from an old machine, beside the fun spent on many days of refurbishing and parts searching?

agree with wls, its a walk away without baskets.  The baskets for those have little hooks that hang on the three pins on the agitator, if you had to make them it would be a pita.  As for jars, I think the the large straight neck paragon jars fit, but I haven't been able to get my hands on one .....you have to buy a case and shipping is more than the jars cost so haven't bothered (I only want them because they have screw on lids!).  If anyone has tried them...I'd be interested if they in fact work
