PS the middle section will rest on the bridge and have a second step slightly higher than the crown wheel in order to give it some endshake!
But for now it’s time to go home and rest! See you next week everyone!
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued with the hairspring module, Focusing on moving down the list of the various tasks and operation checks for the hairspring. The hairspring section has been one of the most intricate subjects I have tackled so far as even though their isn’t much to it in terms of material and inventory. It is one of the most complicated with many tools necessary for checks with an intricate theory built on contradictory rules and fundamentals that are very straightforward but since one step might have complete different rules to another it takes practice and patience.
Great amount of snow arrived this week! Very beautiful! and we may get plenty more over the weekend! The technicians did some practice exams for the barrel and geartrain course this week and the trend is excellent! In between the trials they did some micromechanics and tool making. Markus started to pin up hairsprings to the collet and practiced restoring old hairsprings that were out of shape. Yuriy donated a dial feet assortment to the school, which we will first use to practice with on some old broken scrap dials next year, thank you Yuriy!! Pierre is going strong with his school watch. All in all, a very interesting, intense but also productive and fun week. Have a great weekend everyone!
