Hi

 

Do any of you watch repair gurus have any tips on the best way to refix the batons on a watch face after they've dropped off? 

 

I generally use a pair of thin tweezers to hold the baton while I try to line the little pegs up with the holes, but it's really tricky and I feel there must be a better way. 

 

Thanks, Valerie

If you accidentally use a tad too much glue does the b7000 glue remove easily without marking the dial?

What would you clean any excess b7000 off with?

Been using glue cement, but will be ordering some b7000 to try.

I use b7000 occasionally when I'm beading and find it a bit 'stringy', much like UHU or pizza cheese.

 

But maybe my tube is a bit old, so I'm going to buy a new one and try it out next time I have batons to replace. I've got the Rodico and there's toothpicks at home, so I'll be good to go.

 

Thanks

yes b7000 is stringy..grab one end and pull and it will come clean off, without leaving a mark..secret is to use as little as possible to begin with
