Does anyone have a good solution for keeping their working area dust free? I am constantly cleaning down my bench due to dust, after a few hours there is a layer of dust that needs removing. The room i work in is about 5 meters by 2, carpet flooring and no windows. I was thinking about an air purifier

does anyone use one of these or have another suggestion?

The first thing that came to my mind was a small, portable spray paint booth. I got one of these for my son that builds Gundam models. It's a bit noisy, but it does the job.

   make or buy one of the small watchmakers benches.  they are easy to  cover up.  perhaps put it on wheels.     vin    p,s,      can you cut in a window?

Nice idea but It's not really practical for watch making, not enough space for your arms

We had two recent topics on this already.
Always a good idea to use the search box and keep discussion concentrated.

    • welcome to the forum.
    • Hence my posting, to "visually" support what you said and to give VW a hold-on-to "handle"
    • FLwatchguy73 - By no means am I an authority on the Luch Electromechanical, but if you check out this thread on the WatchUSeek forum, there’s some useful info: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/luch-3055-opinions-discussions-2700305.html it’s definitely a fascinating model, and I really like the styling. But they can also be stubborn and quirky. If you get a good one, great! Otherwise you’re looking at a project and a learning experience. Fortunately I like learning, and I can be stubborn too. When I was an IT support guy for our local school district, my motto was “Numquam apparatus esse victor...” essentially, “Never let the machine win.” That applies equally to PCs and weird old watches. ;-) Gryf
    • Hello I'm just started learning about watch repair for hobby, very happy to found this group
    • I'll start off the 1st one. This my Waltham 12s pocket watch. Beautiful white gold case. Fully jewelled. I was a non working watch which I got for a bargain from ebay. I found that the mainspring was broken. I temporarily fixed it by annealing the end of the mainspring, drilling a hole for the catch and shaping it to fit the barrel arbor. It worked fine. So I proceeded to clean it while I went to order a new mainspring for it. Somehow I got distracted and forgot it was still soaking in my ultrasound. By the time I remembered, the shellac from the pallet stones had disintegrated.
