Hi Fellow People,
Im reaching out as I’m currently learning all I can about watchmaking, and am working through the BHI distance learning technicians course, with my exam booked for May.
I will need to service a quartz watch as part of my practical exam, and am learning about watch lubrication.
A few months ago I found a great article that covered the technique for dipping and collecting the right amount of oil on the oiler, such as the speed and angle of the dip, however, I now can’t find it anywhere, no matter how much I search the internet
Does anyone have or can point me in the right direction of instructions specifically on oil collection on the oiler? As you will know there is lots on the actual oiling process but not the oil collection process.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello. I am considering buying a bottle of fixodrop and I found that there are many options regarding the quantity.
Since I am hobbyist watchmaker, I don't service a watch very often.(Couple of them in a month)
In this case, would it be okay to purchase the smallest amount of fixodrop(1ml)?
One more thing. Is there anything else I should get to apply the fixodrop to my pallet fork?
I'm about to service a Timex 260 electric movement. It's running strong as-is, but I doubt that it has been cleaned or lubricated in its lifetime. I do have the service manual for the movement and for most of the oil points, the SM calls for Moebius Synt-A-Lube, without specifying a product number (I intend to use Moebius 9010), but for the friction pinion the manual calls for "spreading type oil" (Woods AAAA oil). I cannot find a cross-reference for this old Woods oil and most watch oils are, of course, specifically formulated to NOT spread... so, I'm seeking advice and suggestions for a suitable oil to use on the friction pinion. Also, if anyone thinks that 9010 is NOT appropriate to use for the various other points, please let me know.

Hi all, I'm new to this fascinating discipline. I'm a plumbing and heating contractor by trade. Been in that industry for 35 plus years. My other interests include gunsmithing. I stumbled on to one of Marks YouTube videos and I was drawn right in. I've always been interested in mechanical things. Thanks for all of the information I've already received. Hope to pursue this and gain skill and knowledge.
Look at the spring position BETWEEN the regulator pins. If its central to both pins, I vote to leave it alone. The old guys (Fried and De Carle) often suggested using a slight bend in the hairspring to centralize the spring position between regulator pins. It does appear to be a little eccentric. At any rate, I doubt your slight kink would be a reason for low amplitude. Good luck, RMD
