Classifieds - For Sale / Wanted Section??


Recommended Posts

Good Morning Mods!

I was wondering whether there was any appetite for a Classifieds section where members could offer items for sale and / or post wanted ads?

I am a member on another (Hi-Fi) forum where this works quite well, it has no direct association with the forum and items are offered for sale at the individuals risk.

There is also a "spirit of" section where members offer items for free or usually stipulate that a donation to charity is made. 

The actual sale logistics i.e. payment / shipping is agreed via direct message between interetsed parties.

This has been asked and discussed before, since the very first day the decision was not to have that - and I can tell you in full confidence that will not change now.

It was decided that this forum will not go down the path of advertising. You can however if someone is asking for something use the message service on here, but no blatant adverts.

Thanks. Makes sense, just because it works for one doesn't mean it works for all.

Is there a specific thread for the "pass it on" section mentioned in the thread posted above?

There is no section as such. If one needs help about a part can post in the repair section. Still, the idea is that this forum will not promote members acting for profit or personal benefit.

    • More than happy with that information @WatchMakermany many thanks for your research and time, I’ve unfortunately been at work today so not had time to search myself but did order said spring which hopefully should be here tomorrow 
    • yer that parts obsolete try ebay for part or a donor watch
    • It boils down to personal preference. If you have a light enough touch then No.5 and No.4 are fine for picking things up, but with a greater risk of things flying if you get a little heavier handed as the tips are more prone to flex. Also your No.5's won't last long if you do too much heavy lifting with them. My go to tweezers are old carbon steel No.4's, some of which started life as No.5's but have been dressed so often that they are now effectively No.4's. I use these for handling screws, springs, and handling wheels by their steel pinions. For installing wire springs I use the same No.4's sometimes with a little assistance from some carbon steel No.2's. For handling plates, bridges, cocks, cut springs, and wheels where I'm handling the wheel rather than the pinion, I use brass No.3's. I also make extensive use of a couple of shaped brass rods of different diameters, and peg wood for handling and maneuvering parts. I haven't tried the acrylic swizzel sticks yet but I believe that they are very good. The same set of tools does for everything from ladies wrist watch calibers through gents wrist and pocket watches up to desk clocks, and only gets bigger in scale if I need to use pliers.
