    Need help for a old watch

    I bought a complete movement like this from Ebay for a customer's watch for about £14! I only needed the mainspring and barrell, job done in 5 minutes. Might be worth a look?
  2. You can get the spare lasts and bunion bits from Standard Engineering, but I think they only sell as a set which includes two U bars. I used to use a quite thick split ring until I bought a complete new set.

    £7.50 including 30 characters, 30p per character above that.
  4. I've had these but stopped using them, some wouldn't go in lock, cut two the same for customer and one worked one didn't. Couldn't trust them so been using UL054 but got ESPC6 on order to try.

    Have you tried wizard - New device or delete device at the main toolbar?
  6. UL064 is higher than UL054, try that instead.
  7. I have mine connected by ethernet cable and contactless still has that slight delay. It used to authorise instantly but now you have to wait for it to "go through". I've had a couple of occasions where the customer was virtually out the door and I had to call them back because it never authorised the payment.
  8. They have rotted, only way is to remove completely and rebuild the whole sole unit.
  9. If white spirit not working then probably had it, unless any of the specific patent cleaning products works. Don't look expensive so probably better off getting new shoes.
  10. Try a bit of white spirit, then a good polish with Mr Sheen.
  11. Vinyl cutting a logo with fine detail can be a right PIA, you sometimes lose some of the small details when weeding the material

    TL key blank

    I always use genuine blanks from Citysafe for these, and always put them in the clamp using the bottom groove, never have a problem anymore.

    Diamonds are forever?

    I don't paint either. I only infill with paint on engravers brass ( memorial plaques) when cut with a carbide cutter. A rotating diamond won't cut deep enough to fill. I use drag diamond on aluminium trophy plaques and a rotating diamond usually on pet discs or nickel plated plinth bands on cups.

    I know nothing about cut to code but if the blank is 83p can you not put 83 in front of the code i.e. 83723? Like L&F codes???

    Regent used to be HD 19C but sometimes HD 136H (Henderson) will do it.

    I've started using a diamond rotated but cut the feed rate down to 0.2 or 0.3. Seems to dig a little deeper.
