Final push to Xmas...and endshakes

Theren making the correct endshake on the Peseux 7001

Simone checking if the correct endshake is done

Tomas pressing in the jewel on the Horia tool
Continuing on with the last subject before the test next week, the students started on the topic of jeweling.  They learned how to press jewels into the mainplate and bridges using the Horia tool.  Specific heights should be obtained from the pressing to arrive with the correct endshake for the wheels in the gear train.
Simone enlarging the broken thread hole readying it for bushing insertion

Turning the bushing on the 70 lathe

Some movements had damaged threads, therefore, Simone decided to make a new bushing for the mainplate.  Using the jigborer to first enlarge the damaged threads then friction fitting a bushing with the correct threads into the hole.

Testing out the milling attachment for the first time

Nicolas continues to make his tools, learning the milling attachment of the 70 lathe this week.  Soon we will have some very original tools to show off!
Eddie continues to prepare for his upcoming winding stem exam

Happy St. Nicolas' Day! 

We celebrated St. Nicolas day yesterday where Svenja brought the boys holiday treats.  Svenja also explained the story behind St. Nicolas to our wide range of international students.

Because the students won't be here for Christmas, the school decided to have an outing together tonight at the local bowling alley.  We will post pictures of this later!  Have a great weekend everyone! We're off to bowl!
