First fondue evening, and milling

This week we keep learning new machine - Milling. Milling is a little bit more complicated compared with drilling. So we have to do it one by one under Henrik's supervision. From machine set up (calibration) to milling a square piece from scrach. We still have to practice our own afterwards before we work with our own master piece.

Yi Ting is squaring from scrach.

CJ is calibrating the flatness of his work piece.

It's all about pricision.

Felix is measuring the straigthness.

Sif is milling the reference surface of the square piece. Use both hands to control the feed speed to increase the stability of milling qualities.

Eddie is making a test piece for testing out the center distance in the gear train of his school watch.

The weather is cold and still snowing, so we decided to have a Fondue night to warm up a bit. As you can see, Yi Ting was really happy and exciting to have Fondue. Say "Cheese", yeah it is all about cheese.

By the way, we students from Taiwan found a really cheap health insurance here in Switzerland from SwissCare. It cost them only 85CFH per month. What a great deal for us. Now we can have more budget to invest in our watchmaking tools in flea market.
