Volume 5 of J.M. Huckabee's Random Clock Talks produced in 1990 in conjunction with AWCI. In this volume Mr. Huckabee provides a demonstration and discussion about drilling the arbor using Huck's "turning in a box" method and making a pivot. RE-pivoting, assembly of clock movements, and the watchmaker's lathe and accessories
I saw NYCCNC and Jimmydiresta (both awesome channels) made cannons recently. Apparently I'm easily influenced. This video shows how I went about making a small 24 pdr naval gun. Plans (and CAD) are available on my Patreon if you're interested in making one as a gift or desk-visiting deterrent, otherwise, enjoy a video of brass cutting and me not talking :) Instagram: www.instagram.com/hlaps1990 Patreon: www.patreon.com/hlaps1990 Music by Ross Bugden: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKGLOK2FqmVgVwYferltKQ
Swiss made extreme quality. This smaller version of the Schaublin 65 and 70 was produced to more stringent requirements of accuracy than its bigger brothers.

How did clockmakers and watchmakers arrive at the divisions in their gear wheel teeth before the invention of sophisticated tools? We can create very accurate divisions using only simple methods. In this part 1, I show how this is done, as also demonstrated at a horological exhibition last year. In part 2, I show how the teeth are actually cut and filed, by hand. This process has been used for at least a few thousand years. I first learned of it by watching Michael Wright, of the London Science museum demonstrate this on the BBC. The method has also been published in German and English horological reference books.
