Thank you Mark and the watch community for allowing my participation.  I hope to share learning in both directions.  My experience is primarily as a jeweler for the last 25 years, expanding into clock and watch work on the side for the last 8.  I can re-bush a clock and am very slow.  I can COA a basic pocket watch and have yet to delve into any complications.  Located in North Conway NH I'm happy to share access to my tooling and shop with others.  I may ask for a coffee or to learn what you know or can teach me.

Hi Tim, Welcome to the forum. 

That thumps up you got from Nickelsilver is worth a million dollars, so far as I know,   you are the first newbie to receive the honour. 

Regards,  Joe

Not a common attitude. Welcome here Tim!

    • Just a brief Hello, I have not been active on the forum for some time but without going into detail there have been a few health setbacks and deterioration of sight has not helped. Ironically I have just recently been given an excellent watch makers lathe and am enjoying my practise with it.  I am still tinkering but it takes much longer than it used to. I have an ancestors company verge fusee pocket watch in pieces at the moment, it is signed but as with these items probably not much of his own work gone into it.  I will be working on it from time to time but parts may be an issue. Also an Omega bumper is in pieces, cleaned and ready to work on.  So not quite written off yet. If anyone is interested, John Robey has published a PDF on Academia about Sam Harlow, one of my Ancestors from the line of Ashbourne Clock and Watchmakers,a Long Case Clockmaker.  Its quite interesting, obviously to me, but others may be interested, I may have a word with him and get permission to put it on the Forum for folks. Anyway, hello to everyone for now and I will be popping back again from time to time. Cheers, Vic  
    • What Joe explains is good practice as it tests the balance and allows good observation of the same   and not having to worry about the fork engagement as the balance is free swinging.
    • I watched the Documentary twice and found it a stark reminder of the methodology of the management at the time and the bull neck approach of the unions Indicative of the British Auto industry and the Railways, hopefully never to be repeated.   Dundee was a good factory with skilled workers its demise was a great pity.

    • Yep that's the stuff you could hide an elephant in that for weeks.
