Back in the classroom, the students started the final subject of timing. Using our Witschi machines, they began timing the 6498 balances they have been working on so hard these past weeks. Right now they are just getting a feel for the machines and learning how to operate them, in the next few weeks they will start to figure out where the errors come from and make the movements perfect.

Shuai and Eddie on the other hand have started the oiling of the winding and setting system along with learning the theory and operation of endshakes for the geartrain. It is the first steps to understanding how the timing is affected, but they might not know that yet! All that is going to change real soon however.
