Have a good weekend everyone!
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I finished the last sections of the hairspring adjustment, specifically establishing the regulating curve and double bend. Both adjustments where tricky and had a learning curve as the risk of damaging the hairspring was very high depending on technique and dexterity for the best result, making them challenging. However I was able to push forward and finish both adjustments making it very satisfying.
We had two escapement trial exams this week which went really well for everyone, looking like some of the students may do the real one next week. Pierre is doing really well and continued on his school watch, practicing flank graining and beveling of the barrel bridge. Markus got a good hang of the hairspring regulating curve forming and started to practice making the double bend. The technicians finished all the pallet adjustments on the exercise movements and did two trial exams and will most likely take the real exam next week. Michael and Alex got some time in between the trials to do some machining which was nice to see! A very solid week! Have a great weekend everyone!
