    George Daniel's Watchmaking understanding!

    It's because the barrel is cocked to the side. Here's a 4mm tall barrel that's 0.02mm off at the very top. Overall picture first, then zoomed in on the top misalignment and bottom. You'll see that on the left side of the image we've lost 0.06mm of clearance, so you'll end up with 0.14mm of...

    Any one used DelphElelectronics Clock Gear Application?

    Boley Geneva Flip-Down T-Rest height

    Hey all, I recently acquired a beautiful looking G Boley Geneva-style D-bed lathe. It looks pretty pristine and the bearings seem to be very good. It came with many accessories which drove the purchase, as buying onesey-twosey can be expensive :) However, I seem to be stumped by it. The...
