Jig Boring on a snowy May day

This week our students learned how to use the Jig Borer.  They did a small exercise scribing and milling out holes on a brass plate. It is the most precise machine we have in the school, accurate to 3 microns!

The students are almost finished with the tools.  In a couple weeks they will start with actual watch parts, winding stems!
We also had a visitor who brought a Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue.  It is a watch with a movement made mostly out of sapphire. It is a beautiful watch with only 99 pieces made in the world.

The second surprise today was that it snowed!
