Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued with the hairspring course performing many checks, vibrating and second pinning getting several hairsprings ready in preparation for next week when I move into the next section of the course.
STEP 3: ADJUSTING THE ESCAPEMENT! (TECHNICIAN)
It got much warmer this week and we almost lost all the snow otherwise this week was very nice, not as busy as the last one. Markus continued with hairsprings and completed the vibrating and the 2nd pinning, he will learn how to stud it up so it can be attached to the bridge as well as making the regulating curve and double bend next week. The technicians learn how to use the escapement meter to shift the pallets in and out to make them safe and perform well and at the same time have equal total locks on the entry and exit pallets. Pierre is doing really well and continued on his school watch, making screws as well as finishing some old tools. All in all, a very pleasant week. Have a great weekend everyone!
