Recommended Posts

So I built a watch for my son from a Seiko Movement NH70 I had to remove the rotor and I managed it only just with my largest watch screwdriver but not Ideal is there a special  screwdriver for this task ?

    • Basics Knebo , the last one is super important to remember, unless you dont fancy waking up the following morning 😄
    • Good plan Andy, i did hint earlier 🙂
    • My Inspiration experience for a new thread. Here is a little job lot of a few nic-naks i made an offer of 18 quid for  a few days ago. A few handy items inc. a Smith screw back remover which was only my reason for buying ( they dont call me " eagle eyes " for nothing.  Also a nice old retracting pencil, a split/ wooden container of cylinder punches , a wooden screw top ( the fine thread is amazing) diamantine pot,a bakelite glass lens loupe and some other useful odds and ends. And hiding at the bottom of the plastic tub was a movement. So while having a break from figuring out my next move regarding the barrel arbor re-pivot, i thought an investigation was in order. This is the surprise bit, down comes Bestfit from the shelf above and gives me a Buren 460. Striped down and potentially only a re-staff is required, checking the balance stock i find a 460 inca, 3 of the dimensions are off by 10,20 and 30 microns and are undersize for what i need 😔, a few  more packets to check may turn up something,  keeping these chubby pinkies crossed while i search. 
    • I've been using a cheap hammer for my watchmaking antics for some time, so decided to upgrade to a 'proper one' so looked on Cousins to see, and there are way too many choices...... can anyone advise the best all-round size:
    • I follow your walkthrough with great interest!  I'm not sure how I would do it but still think I would try to follow their recommendation. My only question is how do you practically go about quickly rotating the rotor in the benzine? I would follow their recommendation. Oiling correctly is often an underrated art with far greater consequences than most people realise. I don't think it's a coincidence that JLC recommends 941. That said, in this particular case, I think you can safely use 9010 if you don't have or don't want to invest in 941. Yes, it is undeniably strange. Maybe the explanation is that there is a difference between viscosity and "viscosity index"!? I understand that 9010 is a much older oil than 941. I guess JLC has found through practical experiments that they get marginally better results with 941 for just the rotor bearing, but who knows?
