      Hello All,
      I'm wondering what tool is commonly used to manipulate the regulator arm? I've used everything from tweezers to a plastic stick used to help open up computers. My main issue is that all of the things I've used are risky for slippage and I find it incredibly hard to just nudge a little when you're really trying to dial in the timing. I would think there would be a special tool for this (there's a special tool for EVERYTHING), but I haven't managed to find such a tool if it exists. Today I made my own tool using an old broken spring bar tool that I reshaped that should make life a little easier, but I'm very curious to see what everyone else is using.
      thank you

      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?

      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.

      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?

    • I’m servicing my first SEIKO watch housing a calibre 7S36B. Got it on eBay for about £70 and it seems to be in reasonably good condition. The crystal is somewhat scratched. I don’t know if it is mineral or sapphire glass. If mineral (which I assume) I suppose I could diamond paste the scratches, but for several reasons I would like to replace the crystal, the most important reason being I’d like to learn how to. I’ve already removed the old crystal and it’s intact so I could measure it. However, CousinsUK.com has a ”Seiko Glasses List (Under Construction)” with hundreds and hundreds of mostly original SEIKO crystals. Each crystal is listed with SEIKO’s part number, for example “Glass, Seiko 095N02GN00”. The question is, how do I obtain the part number of my SEIKO crystal? The numbers I’ve found on my SEIKO are: 7S36-05C0 – printed on the see-through case back, 0D0349 – engraved on the rim of the case back, and 7S36B – engraved on the oscillating weight.
    • Thanks for responding. One half millimeter!  Now I go search for this.
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • W W is right, if you show a picture of the cock laid upside down, we have a chance to figure out how to detach the HS and if the collet is removable then sorting the HS out and shaping an end curve isn't a tough task.  A top view with balance pivot inside the jewel hole, would be helpful.
