This week we had a group of 5 watchmakers all members of the AWCI https://www.awci.com/ to learn about hairsprings, they were all very passionate and enthusiastic! we covered a lot in a very short time! they learn to rivet the staff to the balance, install the double roller, perform static poising and truing the balance in the flat, they then continued to pin a raw hairspring to the collet, vibrating/counting it to the correct frequency, align the inner pinning point to the regulating point, make the double bend, regulating curve, and studding it up to the bridge and then they also practiced making it flat and centred under the bridge before doing the timing, very intensive week and they all went home with their own balance completes! The Fullskill students continued progressing mostly with the same work as last week! It was truly a fantastic week!! Have a great weekend everyone!
