      All,
      I am very nearsighted (between -6 and -7 in both eyes). With astigmatism. Now, in my late 50's I also have significant nearsightedness.
      I thought a flip up visor - which I could wear with my glasses would be best. I purchased an OptiVisor with a flip-down loupe. But not happy at all with the visual quality.
      I know you get what you pay for in optics. What is the best type of device for someone with old-bad eyes.
      I have never used a regular loupe - but thinking that may be the way to go. Any of you guys (or gals) have a reccomendation?
      -Paul

      I have an acquaintance who is closing his shop due to health after 43 years.  He has a large quantity of parts, stems, crowns, crystals and all the paraphernalia one would accumulate after a long period in the business.  He needs to liquidate his shop.  This isn't a "Hey do you have a __ for a __." kind of post.  We're talking serious stuff here.  Mass quantities.   If you need parts, equipment, etc. for your practice, please let me know.  I will pass along his email contact  to you.  Obviously, this is useful primarily only to those in the U.S. due to shipping costs.  But he has a huge amount of useful goods and is 100 miles South of Atlanta.  PM me if you need something.
       
      Thanks,

      Hi, I have a few bits and pieces, and clocks. And I am very interested in horology tips, conunundrms etc.

      Would it be interesting for this forum to set up a list where we could exchange things like parts and tools?  I happen to have duplicate tools from my lot purchases, and feel that those could be better used. No money involved. Would that be feasible?

    • You got any naked pictures of it, Yank? I didn't remember MW selling a house brand watch.  70's from the style I'd guess.
    • A once great American  retailer. Montgomery (monkey) Ward sold watches  under  the legant  lable.This Hamazawa powered version  came with a bad mainspring. After  cleaning  lubing swapping. this example  runs surprisingly  well. Don't turn up your  nose  at a 17 jewel Hamazawa. They  are better  than you might  think.
    • Digital  watches  are great provided  you can read the numbers!
    • My advice would be to spend most of that for tools. You already have the stero microscope to see very closely. Taking super high res picture would not fix faults and to get advice on the forum all you need is a regular macro camera even if few years old. Bust surely you need a stand.
    • yer i only want to spend about £400. And no i don,t have a camera as yet.
