Last but not least I hardened the cupping wheel and tempered it. Because of hardening, the endshake is gone and I will have to clean the piece and lap it again for smooth functioning. But that did not prevent me from checking how it would look :)! And also see how’s the hidden screw looking from under the bridge! Voilà for this week! Lots of work and I am very much looking forward to resting this weekend. See you next week everyone!
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued with the hairspring module tackling each new part and the theory.
STEP 3: SCHOOL WATCH! (PIERRE)
Can’t believe we only have one more week left before holidays! This week turned out to be rather creative, the technician course students who finished the barrel and gear exam went back to do all kinds of creative micromechanical work, the Aciera F1, Lathes, Jig borer etc. were all in great use. Markus learned how to vibrate hairsprings as well as lining up inner (collet) and outer pinning points (regulating point) called the 2nd pinning. Pierre was working on his school watch with the crown wheel modification doing good progress, Indeed a nice week! Have a great weekend everyone!
