  1. so,  did you get my post about Brasso?

  2. good show ! I should mention, Brasso is an abracive. with 2 different formulas. one for US and another for UK. try "silver polish". vin
  3. welcme to the forum. Omega, "top of the line", vin
  4. yes --- i used to take ibroprofin after hard work. it has reduced taking that about 90% with the same hard work. Dr. vin by the way, i havent tried it with Takila or Scotch or beer.
  5. very good show! Bad Backs; in my younger years, i did some building and remodeling. caring 50 pound sacks of concret mix, roof shingles or dog food.. the key to "retired guy building" is excercize !! i also take 500 miligams ot Turmic every morning. vin
  6. i wounder if your "fruit knife" is the same as mine? used by grochers to trim fruit, it has a 6 inch blade, sharp as a razor. ? vin
  7. vinn


    the shot gun never worked.nor any hand gun. before they changed the formula of petral, you could run the vaccum hose to the mole hole from car exhost. Now, in the US, you can buy a "mole gas bom". baned in UK. try kerocene. vin
  8. i recoment the best one via burgen type. a fruit knife might be good if you grind it to the proper shape and harden it. there are a lot of "pop off cases" the best shape woun't open ! its a learning thing. i use a saftey razor blade and watchmaker hammer to "open the crack" and then a "chisel shaped screw driver.". be careful, good luck. vin
  9. it is too easy to make one rather than use a poor (and dangerous) chinezium tool. vin
  10. why not use brass for dial feet? a jewlers' torch works good for soldering, vin
  11. welcome to the forum. look up pocket watches and view the new and vintage. you might find one that belonged to Lord Nelson.
  12. Offers will do that.
  13. for lenses i use isopropinal. it should work on battery watches to. for leaking battery deposits "baking soda in warm water" (opisit of acid ). might not be good for quarts . movments.. vin
  14. I am not good with spelling
  15. welcome to the forum. my first "good watch" is exactly that model,years ago, still have it and it still runs. cheers, vin
