0.0ms !!

 WEEK 108

Willy, Yuriy, Alex, Michael
Origin : Singapore, Canada, Taiwan, Malaysia 
Watchmaking class: Technician & Fullskill 
Current mood: Trying and still trying to get it to acceptable state, manipulating the hairspring ever since started one and half month ago. Wonder I am manipulating the hairspring or the hairspring manipulated me lol. Anyway got to do what you got to do. Have a nice weekend cheers. 

Renato & David
Origin: Zug, Zürich, Switzerland
Watchmaking class: Fullskill
Current mood: David and I continued to work on the tools we need to create. Mainly the balance bridge holder, where we learned how to precisely turn the piece while keeping an accurate angle over the turned length and do respective fine adjustments. On same tool we learned how to do the threading. Outside threading on the lathe as well as inside threading on the drilling machine. I started to work on a piece that requires press fitting and also has narrow sides that are not easy to file to a precise 90° angle. For press fitting, I prepared a test piece and inserts with different sizes in 1/100mm steps to press in next week to get a better feel for press fitting. Turning to exactly 1/100 on the lathe was also tricky, since measurement of the piece diameter with calipers, while it's still in the lathe, needs some practice and is a good lesson in how calipers work in general and how to measure with them under special circumstances. I also catched up on drilling (David did that already earlier) and also on how to check accuracy of drilling markings on the profile projector. Learned quite a bit this week!

Name: Markus McDonald.
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden. 
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: 
This week I worked on some personal projects before moving on to the next section.
Specifically I worked on finishing off a few tools and pivot gauges and set up my tools and bench in preparation for the next section.
This went well as I was able to finish some projects that where 90% done and make progress with the pivot gauges leaving only one left to do.
All and all this was a good week and will reduce overall work and make the next section more effective.

0:0ms beat error!! still have to do the timing, but thats really unbelievable! therfore it was checked and confirmed several times!! Well done Michael!! Not that its the most important in timing but still its impressive to see such rare number!


Tapping in the drilling machine and also threading screws in the lathe!

A dimple was found in one of the cap jewels giving Michael a 50° amplitude loss btw dial positions!


New reading material from Renato! Very nice!!


It got colder this week! and raining! Everyone are very busy at the moment Markus soon moving on to complete watch repairs! that will for sure be very fun for him! David and Renato learning more about machining while Alex and Michael had 2 hairspring trial exams. Yuriy and Willy continued with timing and hairsprings soon they will learn the chronographs! Very divers and interesting week!  Have a great weekend everyone!
