Hey guys, In this video I demonstrate how use the watchmakers lathe. I demonstrate taking five basic cuts that every watchmaker should know, using the gravers I sharpened in the previous video. When first using the watchmakers lathe, it is best to practice turning brass and then move onto carbon steel. This is essential knowledge for practical watchmaking, and also for the watchmaker who wishes to manufacture parts for the repair of watches and clocks. Please like, share, comment and subscribe and I will make more watchmakers lathe videos.

An introduction to the exciting world of watchmaking. Relationships are made of special moments. When the time is right, memorable gifts are given and sometimes they become family heirlooms. When these gifts are maintained they can be passed down to the next generation creating tangible memories. That is where we come in... The Watchmakers.
