Japanese staking set question.

Recommended Posts

 How do Japanese staking sets compare with quality european or American makes?  What all to check when buying a set? And how?  Should I buy a Jap set.

Thanks in advance for all advice.

Back in the 70's and 80's I bought a Japanese staking set and found it to be very good. The finish was very good , I also had a Boley set as well. Both very good. The Jap set had more verity of stakes.

If the quality of the tools that I've used on old Japanese motorcycle is anything to on,  watchmakers tools of Japanese origin will be up to the job in hand.

I did examine a vintage set from the 60's by MKS, which I believe is/was a Japanese manufacture, at a local auction some time ago, it look more than adequate to me. In retrospect I wished I'd left a bid on it.

I have an MKS jeweling set.

It is well made, but mine has had a hard life and as such I bought it cheap, so will probably replace it at some point, but at the moment it is still doing the job.

I have a Japanese MKS/Meikosha staking set, the exact same as Mark has, which you can see in some of his videos.

The stakes are in incredible condition for their age, with no rust or deformation. I am very happy with the quality of the set.
