This, Just in! (Staking and jeweling set)


Recommended Posts

In terms of punch width/tolerance, what’s important to me is that the punches can grip the tool hole well enough such that they don’t drop and can smoothly be adjusted in height (especially when the punch is going onto a balance wheel).

I have a Simonet 450 lathe. Its a bit of work to do on it. But it works. Though, unfortunately missing the milling and grinding equipment. And some W20 collets. And yes. Not only strange pitch threads on them. They are expensive as they were made I gold. Nice quality though!  Bit big for watch work I want to learn about. So also looking for a 6 or 8mm collet lathe. Dream would be a F3 mill to play with too. Hopefully in the future. ?

I had a Simonet 450 for a while but sold it on before ever really running it. Very very nice machines. Milling and grinding attachments for Schaublin 102 should work fine. W20 collets are quite plentiful secondhand and sell for far less than the W12, which so many Schaublin 70 owners are constantly looking for.

 

I have a Schaublin 102, which is the same center height as the Simonet 450. I find that with that and my 8mm (50mm center height) lathe I can cover everything I've needed to do, the perfect combination. I had a 70 for a short while and sold it on, just a little too big for small work and a little too small for bigger work, haha.

Not wanting to interrupt the staking thread. But a 8mm with crosslide would be nice. Maby grinding tools. But we well c what one can find. ?

Some further info on this thread.

I found a seller on eBay with NOS Marshall staking stakes and stumps. (eBay seller btlgrd - he also has a fair bit of Levin lathe parts) I will be ordering the one broken one, as well as a couple sizes that were not included with my set when sold new- I will then have every stake and stump Marshall made (and probably use 1/10th of them in my lifetime...)

I am attaching a couple pages that those with Marshall sets may find useful when searching for stakes and stumps. Note that Marshall did not mark their stumps, and measuring is the only way to identify them. Also, stakes are identified OPPOSITE they way they are shown in the paperwork- so a L7 stake (the one that I have broken) is physically marked on the stake as 7L. This is important if you are hunting, and the seller may not know this...

I also found a closed eBay listing which included some K&D stakes along with the Marshall set- sizes are "in between" the Marshall sizes, and I added that note below as well. Good info for those needing a slightly different size.

I finally, today, got around to placing the order. Seller combined shipping for me, so I only paid that once.

Smooth transaction so far, and these stakes are brand new, still in cosmoline! Grab them if you need them!

He could probably make a full set for you; but at $4 each, that could get pricey... He may do a special deal on a full set as well. Worth asking, if you have a nice tool with rusted, nasty stakes.

Who doesn't like getting a new tool!?!? I'm pretty happy at the moment, despite a global pandemic.

Heck yeah agreed!

I missed this whole thread...

But anyway, I too have a Marshall set and have purchased from this seller. His stock is stunning. I've never asked where he got it all but it sure is fun to look at. Still packed in cosmoline and wrapped in wax paper, in original crates.

Love my set btw.

Yes, mine were well coated but cleaned up perfectly. I have every available stake with none broken (yet). 

if I could get that incabloc spring done I’d feel better about it but there is no way you are doing something like that without this tool.

    • I am a student and am completely new to watch repair, however have been interested in watches and animatronics most of my life. I would like to start doing watch repair as a hobby and am currently learning the fundamentals. I have many questions and hope to learn a lot from this forum.
    • Hello everyone,   For awhile now I have been working on and designing my own watches. I am getting closer to having all the parts made for me and have started to think about assembly.   I have been working on watches for a number of years now and I always thought little about the process of casing the watch up. It was just the final step. However now that I will be hopefully assembling a lot more watches I have begun to think more about the process and the tools that could make this process easier and ensure I have a professional final product.  Some of the tools I have considered buying,  - A vacuum tool for cleaning the inside of the case  - A hand press for fitting hands   - Plier style spring bar tool  - Stem Cutter    -Wooden tipped tweezers (handling the hands)  I already own a case press and a variety of other tools. Does any one want to give me some thoughts about these tools or what you might recommend? The goal is to speed up assembly, assure no dust gets in the case and not mark up any components during assembly. I plan on spending around 3000 pounds. ($5000 CAD dollars)   Cheers,  Liam Branch 
    • So, the more you guys tweak the more entropy that results.  You are killing us.  Worse than AGW!! Interesting article a must read for horologists!
    • I'm afraid I don't have the experience or knowledge to help you with your questions, but I was thinking that the new part might fit. I would suggest that you could give it a try. Just be gentle and observant and I really don't think there's any risk for any damage to the movement or the part. Worst case scenario, it doesn't fit and no harm has been done.
