Bergeon Automatic Oiler 1A Unpacking, Demonstration, Review

Recommended Posts

Like most of us, I look for perfection and oiling cap jewels with a regular oiler take a lot of practice and patience. I found myself having to reclean and re-oil over and over before I could approve my work. So, I decided to invest in an automatic oiler for this purpose and although very expensive I think it was worth every penny, and I was so happy about it that I decided to make a video about it. Please bear with me though as this was my very first attempt at video editing.

The 1A is great, makes cap jewel oiling a breeze and those fiddly Seiko train jewels which you're guaranteed to fit first attempt when dry but push out of place so you have to clean and re oil several times when you try to oil before placing.

May I make a recommendation which comes from having much practise with spilling things over the years doing this and model kit making.

Keep a lump of blu tack handy and place a blob on the bottom of any bottle you're decanting liquid from, until the cap is back on firmly.

9010 is very expensive to accidentally swipe across your desk. :)

Excellent advice, thank you! It's those little things that sometimes make all the difference!

Indeed, and I was actually feeling a bit worried while recording the video...:unsure:

    • This is supercool Bogdan. Would you share the openscad file with us so we could make our own? It is perfect!
    • Hi all time fans!   short intro: I am Gertaap from NL and I am like Russian time technology a lot. I have many Poljot, Vostok and Strava’s and I have been collecting them for some years. I do also service the watches to practice.  My my favorites are the 3133/31659 Shturmanski and the 2809 Vostok chronometer movements. I just bought a very nice MIG clock too, a bit bigger than my other collection... I also have some Swiss watches but i like the no nonsense working horse movements from Russia!   bye, Gertjo   
    • I've had my eyes on it. Moneywise within reach. Cousinsuk.com which I have a fantastic experience with. BUT, are you really sure? It's marketed as VALUE so I would assume Indian or Chinese. I.e. meaning it could be good or it could be bad and if the latter, it would mean starting all over...  Tell me not to worry and just pull the trigger to get it over with and I'll do as you say! 
    • OK, I'm tempted to pull the trigger on the glass press that you and @jdm suggest, but I feel confused about the dies. May I ask where you got your dies? Will I be needing adapters as shown in the ad that @jdm linked to, and do you think those would actually fit? Perhaps those dies and the adaptors would work really well with this tool? Googling "M6-hole dies", "M6-hole glass press dies" and similar I'm afraid hasn't been very helpful... The armoured glass I'm currently trying to fit a to Vostok Amphibian (Vintage Albatros Radio Room from the 80-ties) is approx. 31mm. Sorry for going on about this! 
    • I have found this on ebay. The same tool you are thinking of buying for a hell of lot less money. What I do not like is other stuff at his shop looks like rubbish https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Crystal-Glass-Case-Back-Fitting-Tool-Wheel-Type-35-Dies-Watch-Repairs-Pressing/192911532678?hash=item2cea6c6286:g:EfoAAOSw-QBcVz4V
