Back from the Show in Eugene. I’ll write up a re-cap post in the next couple days. Short version is the show was great, and I’ve got some spiffy new handle material to stash away for future work.
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
