    Check this guy out on youtube.

    He has skill beyond belief and check out how simple the equipment.

    Unbelievable skill.

    I am subscribed and he continues to amaze and astound.

    Check out his lathe. You wouldn't think he can do the things he does with it.

    One wonders why he didn't simply spend a dollar on a stem thread extension?

    I've made new stems for odd or rare watches but only when the stem is broken where the set lever sits or the pip is broken off. If you are practiced at filing pins then a pinvice is all you really need.

    I like to see alternate ways of doing things. He does pretty good with a simple set up, and not much $$ invested.

    I was a bit confused at first when the was talking about taping, when he was actually using a die.

    I agree that the whole video was great to watch. There was so much doing things alternatively that I'll likely watch it more than once.

    He has more videos, especially on cutting and shaping jewels. Interesting how he uses hot glue too.
