We are ready for exam. Aren't we? :o)
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued to tackle the hairspring module continuing with the assembling and adjusting and finishing with the poising of the balance.
This week switched to a bit slower pace, probably due to the new subjects requiring more thinking, the technician course students learn about jewel bearings in movements and the importance of having clearance, good division and correct end-shake and side-shake for small and thin movements up to pocket watch size, obviously they also had to learn how to correctly use jeweling tools to be able to correct the faults. Markus also learn something new and exciting, the static posing of the balance. Pierre could use the cutters he made last week which was nice to see. All in all, a very pleasant week. Have a great weekend everyone!
