Repair video - Elgin mainspring

Post by Racer-X » October 2nd 2016, 10:55am

I really enjoy this guy's videos. He's very demure and honest about the fact he's not a watchmaker and doesn't know the terminology but figures his way through. He purposely titles his videos as 'How I fix a mainspring' as opposed to 'How to fix a mainspring' since some viewers have told him he's doing it wrong.

Here's his channel

Like his style. Find his voice soothing and love the occasional "damnit!"

I'm on my tablet, I clicked on your link and apparently touched the cast to TV button. Now I know how to watch youtube from my tablet to TV. I just opened up a whole new world for myself in youtube.
Definitely saved this guy's videos and will enjoy watching them later.
