Intensive week! we
had Dean from Canada and Michael from USA taking the taster course this week
which was really nice! Renato started to prepare tools to make complete winding
stems and started to make one complete practice winding stem, David completed
his square winding stem practice pieces and prepared his sharpening stones and HSS
gravers to learn the basic cuts on the 8 mm lathe next week. Michael practiced
repairing and servicing several ETA movements in preparation for his final exam,
and Asmund and Francesco continued hand filing on their tools which will help
them prepare for the filing exam next week. Intensive week but very lively and
positive, it was also really great to have both Dean and Michael for the week!
Renato show us another really interesting pocket watch movement that sparked a
lot of interest! Have a great weekend everyone!
