Since a few days I’m no longer able to log into the forum via the Ipad app. When trying, I either get a ”denied” or ”failed plus a long list of code gibberish” message.

I have tried to update the app and also changed pw via the regular web browser.

Is anyone else having app login issues?

Are you talking about Tapatalk??

I have disabled this plugin temporarily for several reasons. You can load up WRT in Safari and it actually works much better (my personal preference). Or in iPad version of google chrome you get the mobile version as made by the forum software developer and that also works brilliantly.

- it was causing some issues with the website, and in particular the security measures we have in place to help prevent DDos attacks. I did this yesterday to see if the errors will go away (they did) and am testing it further to confirm.

- The other issue I have with Tapatalk is their placement of advertising on my forum of which we do not seem to have any control. When I logged on to test this I saw some pretty awful advertisements which seemed to be promoting these stupid mobile games - with zero benefit to the community.

- We originally used Tapatalk back in the day because the Mobile version of the site was terrible - this has improved immensely, and has made me wonder about the relevance of Tapatalk.

If we get an update to Tapatalk that doesn't cause errors I will consider again to install it.

Thanks for the quick response, Mark!

And yes, this was concerning Tapatalk. When I started using my Ipad for WRT this app seemed to be the best option but things change...

Good to hear that the browser version works fine and will continue that way.

    • I use stock hands or aftermarket hands, depending on what I think looks good. I tend to use stock hands (with their awesome lumibrite) more, but sometimes I switch it up. I'd like to say that this is always an intentional choice, but sometimes I fumble the hand installation and break a factory hand. I've gotten way better at installing watch hands, but I'm still not perfect. I am considering purchasing a Horotec Watch Tool Hand Press after a particularly painful and expensive loss of a handset from a watch I really liked. I'll be posting separately on this. No plans for indices, lumed or unlumed, in the future ... other than the blued chapter rings I'm still working on. I need to recover my initial costs before buying the equipment I need to ensure a consistent blue, so the chapter rings are still paused. That'd be cool, but no way in heck I'm capable of that. I'll leave that to the pros. 😉 For whatever reason, I've never owned or desired to own a chronograph.  I spent a few hours photographing the watches I've built to date instead of grinding fordite dials over the weekend. I'd like to write a guide for watch photography for folks ... but I've still got a ton to learn.
    • That is a BFG866  - not too difficult to find, and I may even have a donor in my stash. I'd need to check. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Baumgartner_866 https://17jewels.info/movements/b/baumgartner/baumgartner-866/ Your version is the 17 Jewel Calendar version, but I think most parts are interchangeable between the different versions. Cousins have some parts. https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/filter/bfg-movement-parts Cousins also have the service manual which will detail the differences between the different versions. https://www.cousinsuk.com/PDF/categories/2529_BFG 866,866.31.7.pdf More about BFG here. http://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280&suchwort=Baumgartner&searchWhere=all#sucheMarker
    • It should be a standard train layout for an indirect-drive centre seconds. So, extended pivot on third wheel. Driving wheel mounted to that extended pivot. Centre-seconds pinion runs down hollow cannon pinion. Friction spring is there to create enough drag to get rid of "slop".
    • Good story and very informative. This is why I purchased the mini bench
    • Don’t know why I missed the most important pic.
