Less than one calendar week remaining until I’m finished with the tech Job. Speaking of weeks, with how I feel right now I am going to sleep an entire week once the day job is over. After more than a decade I get to sleep at least a week right? Probably not considering that the Oregon Knife Collectors Association show is the beginning of April, and I’m going to be helping a good friend with his table. Guess that means I’ll only sleep for 3 days straight.
Instagram Feed:This week's challenge was to manufacture a tool for adjusting regulating pins on ETA watch movements. For reference the metal bit is made out of 1/16th inch stock, aka. 0625 inch, aka 1.58mm. Swipe for pictures shot through a loupe of the working end. #podforge #wip #watchmaking #watchmakingschool #tools #toolmakingOne hand press finished. I decided to make a 3 station version. It is a shame there wasn't any blue acrylic when I made the ends. #podforge #wip #watchmaking #watchmakingschoolDubious Horological Ebay Purchase, Great Learning Opportunity, or The Question to The Ultimate Answer of Life the Universe and Everything... Possibly all 3. (yes there are 42 ninteen millimeter watch movements in that bin) #podforge #wip #watchmaking #watchmakingschool #42 #questionableonlinepurchase
