Maybe you'd be willing to talk about your bluing tray. I, for one, would find it interesting.
What function does the tray perform? Is it as it appears, made of a copper alloy? If so, Why? What purpose do the chips serve?
Beautiful job of machining, polishing and bluing. I'm not the least bit surprised!
This video answers part of what you're asking. starting at about the 8:00 minute mark.
While we are here I have a few more things completed.
The wheel train and wheels in place....
Pivots for the wheel train
Balance staff bearing bezel
I'm now finally ready to produce the balance wheel. Since there are no documents to indicate how much weight is required to run the hairspring I have chosen it will have to be a game of trail and error.
