Tuesday Tools – Computer

Clearly, I spend way too much time on the computer every day, but it is a very useful tool. Let me tell you some of the ways I use this tool. My computer is a communication device. When I encounter problems at the bench, I use my computer to learn from other watchmakers. I belong […]

Purchase prednisone from Toledo

The staking set has 1,000 uses, or so I have been told. The staking set is a collection of punches (stakes), anvils, and cutters which are used in combination with their base. The base has a rotating set of round holes and can also accept the anvils and stakes. The headstock lines up perfectly with […]

What is it?

At a recent gathering of watchmakers we encouraged all to bring a tool they just weren’t sure about. This one managed to stump all of us. The box is labeled “Jeu Arbres Lisses 1re qualite” which as best I can tell means a set of straight shafts or arbors of first quality, But my French […]

We have mentioned barrel closers quite a bit here on Tick Talk recently. J.Peter first made reference to his set in a post exactly one year ago this week, it came up again in his post on simple tools, and we gave a set away to one lucky commentator back in February. One thing we […]

A Custom Set of Movement Holders

I talked about Shock Resistance before and highlighted a video as well. I suspect this little model was used as a sales […]

A rough synopsis on magnetism: (feel free to read the original post for more information on […]

Cheap kamagra in Albuquerque

By request I give you some of the simple tools I have fashioned myself. I’m kind of a spoiled watchmaker because I had to buy lots of really nice tools when I started school. Because of that I haven’t had to improvise a lot of tools but here are some of what I have: Toothpick […]

Best way to find cheap lasix in Seattle

Quite some time ago I wrote about a watchmaker’s tools. It was a post which started my series of Tuesday’s Tools posts. The gist is that my tools are like an extension of my body. This week I have re-discovered how true this really is. I had to switch to a new oiler and this […]

Pivot gauge lovin!

I finally took my first WOSTEP exam last week and I’m glad to report that I made it through.  I successfully finished it with a little bit of warpage after heat treatment but it was complete by the end of the day.  The results are still unknown because they’ll be going to Switzerland for grading.  […]
