Lesson in Incablocs
Henrik giving the lesson on incablocs
Great to have the huge television set to show students stuff.
Joe on assembly and dis-assembly of the incablocs
Dis-assembled incablocs. Tricky stuff. Springs fly around all the time. Which means you are on all fours trying to look for them.

On your fours ..
This happens to EVERY watchmaker at least once a year. Nothing to be ashamed of. Stefano does it in style.

Lathe Servicing Part 2
In this series, the lathe servicing is completed. It looks simple and it is. However, it must still be done with care and caution. During dis-assembly or re- assembly, parts and joints can be damaged. We cannot stress it enough. Care for your tools. Respect them. They will last for a very long time if you do.
