|Some machines we don't really know how they work.|
|Next week we'll start to manipulate the escapement. We will learn how to properly select pusher and anvil to remove and instal shock absorbers.|
Here we also share some of our trouble shooting work in our daily life. CJ had a problem of a damaged thread in the mainplate. Instead of replacing a whole mainplate we have to find practicle solutions to fix it. We decided to make a bushing to friction fit in and create a new thread. it was a really a good exercise where we were able to combine our micromechanics skills with watchmaking.
|Damaged thread for barrel bridge.|
|CJ turn a bushing which could friction fit to the hole he reamed from the original thread.|
|Making a thread after friction fit the bushing.|
|You think this is finished?|
|After Henrik's magic finishing, it's really hard to tell where bushing is.|
