The only addition with this one being that I added a 1200 grit wet and dry stage before using Cerium powder.

I have not tried a domed crystal...yet.
I have a box full of original 6105/6309/7548 crystals Don if you ever fancy a job ? we could even do a trade where you keep so many of the crystals in exchange for the work

Roughly how many John.

The introduction of the 1200 has made the job quicker but it still takes a couple hours. Depending how deep the damage is.

The 320W34 are fine because they are flat. The 320W10 are convex but I would still like to try. PM sent.

No pics, but a while ago a friend hands me a watch that is acting up. It has a Tag Heuer Cal 5 movement, which is a gussied-up ETA 2824. Which I actually know a little about, having broken many of them over the last couple decades. So today I thought I would have a quick look at it.

The stem is broken off and wonít move. So itís probably a keyless works issue of some sort, which is the Achilles heel of these things. I pull the dial and hands, the date wheel and some levers and whatnot, and find something that I didnít quite expect. The sliding pinion is kind of seized in place and under magnification I can see a crack. So I manage to get it out, go find another one, drop that one on the floor (#$&*@! arthritis!), go find a second one, clean everything up, replace the sliding pinion (and the winding pinion, in case that was also compromised), lube the gears, and put it all back together.

I pull the stem all the way out and turn it. Yep, the hands wind. Push it in. Yep, the date sets. Push it in again. Nope, canít wind it by hand.

#$&*@! Some inattentive knucklehead put the winding pinion in backwards. Arthritis, I can manage. Deteriorating eyesight, I can manage. Stupidity? Not sure thereís a cure for that.

This is why I donít usually mess with anything that is scarce or expensive. Sheesh.

Arthritis is a terrible thing ;-(


Have you looked into diet and it's effect on it?

Working on it. The worst of it, at the moment, is at the joints at the base of my thumbs. Unfortunately, that affects tasks like gripping small parts with tweezers. Although, truth be told, Iíve often found my lack of talent to be a greater hindrance than manual dexterity.

You raise a great point regarding arthritis and diet ... the more shopping I do around the perimeter of the store, avoiding processed foods and loading up on fruits and vegetables, the better I do. Seems to help my vision, also, which makes it easier to find all the @#$&+-! small parts on the floor ;-)

Good job. Is the red ring around the holder to establish filming position, sorta like crossed tape on film set floors.

Good on you re the more fruits and veges (plants basically!) and the less or no meats (any) and diary you have = the better (typed this long time Vegan).



Here is a good read with quality peer reviewed studies; https://www.vivahealth.org.uk/health...toid-arthritis


All the best with it
