Just received my magnetic stirrer yesterday. The magnets are not very powerful, so hopefully it doesn't magnetize everything. It can also works as a "line release" tool.
If it doesn't work, I'll have a hot cocoa machine, parts dryer, a line release tool and maybe a demagnetizer.
i just got in to the shop 5 junker swiss bar movements because im restoring this beautiful swiss pocket watch from 1880-ish. I want to cannibalize screws and a new mainspring rachet wheel/click wheel. I paid $45 for 5 junkers! Ive never seen so much oil. I bought them from Dave's. Im wondering if he doesnt spray oil on them so they wont rust. Theyre just soaking it it. I unscrew a screw and under the microscope the screw is coated in oil.
I simply gave up. I ordered one size up as you suggested @nickelsilver a while back from jules borel but the powers that be have ruined our USA post office and they havent shown up yet 6 weeks later. So i put the darn thing back together with loose pivot holes and its working ok. Its actually running fast. Ill have to demagnetize and see if that helps.
