      Hello Everyone,
      Padd here from the UK.
      It all started with a desire to fix a Submariner replica I bought off a lucky lucky man in Pisa, Italy while on a European tour.
      Next thing I know I'm investigating Submariner replicas and building my own, signed by me, using a Seagull ST2130 movement, adventure watch.
      Now I'm hooked, I took inspiration from Marks videos, now I'm happily starting to work on parts of the movement, and have recovered one or two movements where the stem came out, but wouldn't stay back in. I have built a few watches for friends and relations, but now I need to be able to service them when they come back to me.
      I also have a couple of movements that run really badly, so I will be practising on those over the winter weekends. Full repair/servicing kit IS my Christmas present.
      I really want to get one of those ST2130's, serviced and tweaked by me, doing a -------------------------- on my timegrapher. not a -.'-.'''--,'.'.' (and worse) that they do at the moment.
      I wont start to list my watch collection, but it runs from a Casio digital to a Rolex pocket watch with Seikos, Citizens, Omegas and home builds in the mix.
      Must do Mark's course, but I'm afraid I may have already learned 60+% of it already.

      Just in case, I came across this "Watch-O-Scope" software. To those who have a need for it. Also here is an instructional video how to install. I hope it will help somebody here.

      I have gotten hold on a Elma Star vibrograf. Does anyone know if you can still buy paper and carbon for this machine?

      I was wondering how do the timegrapher phone app's out there compare to a dedicated bench top machine. I'm guessing it's all down to the piezoelectric pickup? I installed tickoprint on my phone the other day. But to get the full features you need to shell out $30, if you then also have to shell out for a piezoelectric mic, then you are almost at the same price point as a cheap chinese bench top machine!

    • Have adjusted it like that. Also removed the jumper altogether to see if the disc would move more, but it didn't. I measured the diameter of the peg on the driving wheel and it's 0.3mm, is this the correct size?, to me the peg looks a little bit smaller then the other once I see pictured here.
    • Forgott to add a picture showing the correct height, just make it level with the hour wheel.  
    • It is supposed to be completely flat, no wobble. If it's not flat there is a risk the disk is not just scew but the date ring also is misaligned to the star wheel. The snappy action during date shift will for sure not work in that case. A date jumper is supposed to do what the name applies, keep the dial in place with a small force, just to keep it in place only by friction will make the dial move a slight bit with every small chock the watch gets and I doubt even ROLEX haven't made it work that way, but one never knows ,
    • Welcome to the forum David, Glad to hear you survived the hurricane ok, Dont get any this side of the pond just windy and damp
    • Good morning/afternoon/evening/night, all. I've been an enthusiast for a very long time(I'm 65) but have never progressed past the stage of strip and clean. I'll set up my bench and then not touch it for a year or so, but I'm back. I live in Mexico Beach, FL and as most of the area our home was almost destroyed by hurricane Michael last Oct 10th, 2018, but lucky for my lovely wife and me the interior of our home was untouched, so watch bench, tools and my collection were all in great shape. Most of the home repairs are done with a few items remaining that are lower priority, so back to some sort of normal for us. I look forward to reading the forum for tips and knowledge. Regards...
