Tuesday Tools – Roller Jewel Setting Tweezers

by Jordan Ficklin

Tags: , , , ,

Roller Jewel Tweezers I have never seen this tool in real life or in any modern catalog but it looks terribly useful. The rare time when I need to reset a roller jewel I have found it to be a somewhat awkward task. This tool appears to make it practical and easy. Click on the image for a larger image which will facilitate reading the accompanying text. Where can I get one of these?

    I read this post and was reminded for no good reason of a clock-punk adaptation of the 1995 film ‘Hackers’.

    Does anyone here know of a watchmaking correspondence course worth looking in to? I live in the DFW area in north Texas, and except for rumours of a Cartier school near the airport there don’t seem to be any commutable options.

    You can read the ‘Hackers’ adaptation, titled ‘Clockers’ at http://www.xorph.com/clockers/clockers.html . It is highly entertaining.

    I’ve got a pair of these tweezers. Yes, they are handy. I think you could probably make something similar though by taking a pair of pivot straightening tweezers and grinding down the end. The drill a hole near the tip for the safety roller and file a couple of tiny notches on the tips to hold the roller jewel.
