I managed to figure it out. What pliers are the best to grab arbors without damaging them? I use sheet of papers trying to protect them. Pliers without teeth? Plus protection? I need to source a mainspring now and I cant find my bag of springs....
Folks. I have been interested in being able to build and machine a watch gear for some time now. I would love to cut one on my lathe, but the vintage addins are really hard to find. I am good with designing the gear and getting it CNCed by someone else or even printing the gear and filing it by hand. That said, I ran into a program called Gearotic V3 where you design a gear and a gear train and send the file to a CAD program.
Have any of you tried to do this or used this program for that purpose? It does have clock escapements it the designer but not watch lever escapements. Thoughts, suggestions, etc. the program was 120US, but no issue as I love learning and an adventure.
