This week most of the time went to practice for the hairspring exam. We did have some time for other things as well; we had some very nice visitors all the way from the United States, Dean and Jacob who recently also took Henrik's restoration class a few month back in AWCI Harrison, Ohio.With them they also had a Swiss friend, Kilian who works here in Switzerland as a watchmaker. Also Vincent working as a teacher in HSNY http://hs-ny.org/ stopped by to see Henrik and meet the students, very nice visit as well! We also had a very interesting case of a movement stopping after only running for a few hours, so we got to learn a way to troubleshoot and find where the problem may be, all in all we had a very interesting week!
|This bent barrel tooth with a crack at the root was found to be the culprit. It can be clearly seen that it is leaning closer to the left neighboring tooth that the right one.
|Kilian to the left, Dean in the center and Jacob on the right.
|Students and watchmakers sharing ideas, how it should be!
|Sharing contact details for maybe future collaborations.
|Vincent came by for a visit and had also time to do a quick modification job on the jig boring machine.
