I would really like to write something interesting here, but I have spent the past 3 days reacquainting myself with CAD and beating a Gcode parser into submission. At this point I am at a even greater lack of words then usual. I do however at this point have 4 prototype designs mostly refined in CAD and a workable understanding of GCode. All goes well there will be actual knife steel cut tomorrow.
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
