Fresh meat!

Eddie working the drilling machine
We have a new addition to our wolf pack, Eddie. He is from China. He has started making the tools the other students started on 4 months ago. We hope Eddie likes Le Locle and settles in soon.

Theren and Tomas has moved on from winding stems to pivot gauge. To graduate from the winding stems they had to make 6 glorious looking stems.

The process of getting there

The students learned the new way to turn, between centers. It takes while to get used to because there is less room to work in. They are honing their turning skills by turning blue steel with high speed steel gravers(they are probably sharpening more than they are cutting).
