National Electric Watch Cleaning Machine

Recommended Posts

When I said that I was waiting for the puller I actually got it already I just did not notice it on the ground in front of the entrance door. I have replaced the ball bearing, twice actually because i forgot to add the dust cover first, not like it is needed now as the new ball bearing is double Z (closed both sides). Now you can see my first ever attempt to clean a watch with a watch cleaning machine. I used a movement which is not worth saving in my opinion for the test run, going to check the parts with my microscope but it looks promising. I used elma 1:9 pink milk solution for the first jar and filtered rain water for the 2nd and 3rd. I still need to work on the motor though, if i screw it down it slows down as something is too tight, its like a play with the balance end shake. Too lose at the moment, it starts to shake too much with high speed because it is not screwed down properly.

NickP (and others who may be able to help) - How much did you pay for the National watch cleaning machine, if you don't mind me asking. Or does anyone have an idea what they should go for?

I currently have the same machine - It was my father's machine as he was a watch repairer around the 1970's. I intend to put it up for sale but i'm unsure for how much. It's not been used for over 40 odd years so I don't know it's condition and I don't feel confident trying to power it.
