Well, here's one to chew over as you all stuff yourselves with puonds of turkey over Thanksgiving. Yeah, a huge bird indeed here, and you're surely not going to see many of these again anywhere in the flesh. This massive and very cool machine was recently sold in Germany. Thanks to @ankerhemmung who brought it to my attention, we can now enjoy this rare jig borer and milling machine. According to what Tony Griffiths has on his Lathes.co.uk site (and pix of a really nice one!) these machines were made from the late 30s and 40s, so during the terrible years of WWII. This bull of a miller has an integrated rotary table with indexing plates already provided, and as you can see has one bottom X table travel of 200mm with an upper cross-rotary table combo fixing another 140x120mm travel on x-y. The quill having 50mm travel, could be moved up and down as a unit another ca. 50mm. The motor was attached to the back of the quill and moves with it if you reposition the milling head on its two rails. The cross table setup (copying the xy 'stack' we see on many Hauser jig borers) allows you to quickly set up the workpiece to drill different sized arcs & diameter rececess (i.e., think of successive ops on a mainplate). This particular machine, from its tags, seems to have been in the Theisen gas valve Co in Germany, so very different but precision work as well. Enjoy this grungy heavy hitter over lunch today, and thanks again to @ankerhemmung for sending me this info!!! Do go check Adrian's IG out, he's super knowledgeable about watch and clockmakers tools and machines and his account is always brimming with IG stories of amazing tools that come his way! #horologicaltools #Boley #boleymillingmachine #gboley #boleydrehbank #boleyuhrmacherwekzeug #uhrmacherfraesmachine #uhrmacherwekzeug #outilhorloger #horlogerie #relojero #toolporn #workbench #manualmachinist #bikemaker #knifemaking #gunmakers #watchmakerworkshop #millingmaschine #jigboringmachine #jigborer

Because it's the middle of the week, and something classic is always nice too see. Like this beautiful 8mm collet, 45mm center height, German made G.Boley lathe. This beautiful precision lathe is in the clock making workshop of Tyler Davies of @upto_thetime . The fun thing about this lathe is that Tyler is always pushing it to its limits. Just go see his IG! Which shows just how versatile these lathes can be. We don't often think of 8mm 'watch makers' lathes as getting too much action in a clock workshop, but this shows you that with some thought, these pups can be many times just as useful as a larger 102 center height lathe ;) another nice thing is the East German made VEB drive base this lathe has, giving him tons of rigidity on any thing he'll work on. If you haven't started following Tyler's IG @upto_thetime you should! He's received some really important awards for his excellent work, and appeared in quite a few major publications, so his future work, and IG feed feed are sure to keep on delivering some awesome stuff!! Go check him out! And his presence in Birmingham, along with the other amazing watch and clockmakers there seems to be pointing to a new fulcrum of horology there ;) #horologicaltools #tylerdavies #clockrepair #clockmaker #birmingham #uhrmacherdrehbank #uhrmacherwekzeug #Boleylathe #Boley #boleydrehbank #tourhorloger #outilhorloger #workbench #workshop #toolporn #watchmaker #watchrepair #wots #hodinkee #bikemaker #knifemaking #penmaker

Here's some cool tools for thought for the coming weekend. These four amazing machines were shared by @francois_lauer a few weeks ago, and they're sitting inside the IWC workshop in Schaffhausen. Some are behind a vitrine, and others are used regularly. This first jig borer/milling machine is a Dixi brand, and has what looks to be a very special attachment: the milling table has another on it with a handle, and on the right you see a plate with a shape, and above it, a tracer with a micrometric stop. On tbe right a lever to secure the piece to be worked on, and in the center s movement plate. I might be mistaken, but it looks like a very cool milling/drilling tracing attachment for series production, very cool! Then a beautiful and lovely Henri Hauser M1 jig borer that is always a treat to see. The third pic is a very cool lapping macchine, with individually drived spindles (which look like Aciera spindles!), with each on their own support and guideway to adjust for different sized lapping plates. The final pic is of a hand cranked mandrel, made of brass and probably dating to the 1860s or so. If you haven't seen @francois_lauer IG account please take a look, he's got a cool mix or beautiful watchmaking machines, and his other passion, cycles. So really a fun and not your regular standard gallery, check him out!!! #Repost @francois_lauer • • • • • Maschinen bei IWC Schaffhausen #horologicaltools #dixidrill #dixilelocle #dixidrehbank #dixijigborer #henrishausermillingmachine #henrihauser #hauserpointeuse #hauserjigborer #hauserh1 #hausermilling #hauserm1 #lappingmachine #lapping #iwc #iwcworkshop #toolporn #manualmachinist #bikemaker #knifemaker #jewellery #uhrmacherwekzeug #outilhorloger #relojero #orologiaio #watchmaker #watchmakertools

Here's a cool post to get us started on the right foot this week. Check out the pix that Carlos Sancho of @watchmakers.es recently posted. It's a cool look at the beautiful machines that students at Henrik Korpela's @khwcc_official school get to use and learn on. Really super setup! The first pic is of a totally refurbed Henri Hauser 2A3 jig borer. It's got a fantastic DRO on it and looks better than when it left the factory. Then we have similarly revised Aciera F1, and if you look closely at the vertical milling attachment, it's got the possibility to swivel the quill, like on a bigger milling machine, and thus saving time from having to pivot the base at an angle. Then a cool Schaublin 102 with reduction geared head - just love the condition it's in (yes and the 'humpback' milling attachment!)! The cool idea of adding the white countertop to it, keeps things very clean. And the last pix are of a piece of equipment oft used, which is the Lienhard pantograph. I see this machine pop up all the time in students' posts, fun to see it used so much!!! If you haven't followed @khwcc_official do so now! I've reposted this Hauser before and it's a rather new, and super cool independent warchmaking school by a very talented @henrikkorpela. And of course do take the time to look up @watchmakers.es Carlos is working out or Madrid and has a really cool blog where he details out some really interesting work that has passed his bench. Worth taking a look!!! #Repost @watchmakers.es • • • • • Hemos aprovechado a hacer una visita a @henrikkorpela.

Here's a really cool sequel to a post from a while ago: Yes, if you remember Max of @mgrossm had gotten his hands in a spectacular Hjorth lathe. This is the Boston-made lathe with a 4 3/8" (111mm) center height and ca. 18" (450mm) between centers. Well it's been a while since he sent these pix to me, but finally I got the time this week to repost. And how cool is this?! He's was able to get a back-geared Hjorth head for his lathe!!! What you see in these pix are how he received it (painted green) and then in the other pix, how he's suped it up a bit to match the color of his lathe. An extremely handy feature to be able to run all the larger diameter things!! Also, and really cool to see is the vid of the overhead drive that he's installed in his workshop - of course OSHA approved :P but very useful none the less ;) (and try not to look too long at that drill in the back, it's a beau!) If you haven't seen Max's IG page @mgrossm you need to check it out. Besides the really interesting tools he has, he's an artist in every respect - usually choosing glass and his medium of choice. Really amazing stuff!!!! Thanks again to Max for taking the time to share this really special lathe be uses in his workshop. Go check him out!!!

Three years back around this time we were busy scouting locations for filming the opening riding shots of 'The Bicycle Maker'. Finally we picked the mountainous road en route to Lavasa. After the filming we revisited the same location later that week with an intent to capture some decorated stills. Here you can see Shailesh Krishna (the bicycle maker) executing the 3..2..1 or Release & Catch method. It is a way to suspend the bike for a split second so that it can photographed in upright position without the side stand. There are other simpler ways to do it which involves using props and then photoshopping them. We took the risky way and had great fun doing it. Don't worry the bike never made it to the ground. ✌️😀 Watch the film on our website.

Yeah, yeah, and it's Halloween and we're going to let this day go by without a spectacular lathe? I've been waiting all too patiently to repost this extraordinary video made by Thomas Kuntz @haxanthrobo that fits the bill perfectly. If you manage to keep your eyes off it's grim and menacing operator, you can spy an amazing Derbyshire lathe with an equally spectacular turret tailstock... And don't look what's in the background as it's also superb! But for today, forget about the lathe, just enjoy this film for how cool it is!! Yet for tomorrow, when your recovering from the sugar coma of Halloween, go check out @haxanthrobo IG page... Besides being the amazing multifaceted artist he is, he's an amazing machinist with a collection of tools that will make anyone's eyes pop out of their sockets... He's recently been posting some very rare lathes that I'll repost in the future - so just to check out his work!

Yes indeed, look at this beautiful and extremely rare "Favorite" brand lathe... At a 50mm center height and 8mm collets it's an amazing piece of equipment. It's a Swiss made lathe that I believe was manufactured by Schaublin but in yet a smaller size. For all intents and purposes it is a miniature Schaublin 70 - the quality of these lathes is spectacular, and as you see here in @watchmaniac_ron workshop, it's set up with a milling attachment to make some gears. I'm very glad to have run into @watchmaniac_ron IG account because I won't give it away, but he's a very selective watchmaker with exceptional tools in his workshop - you should look closely at his feed to find some real treasure!!! In the meantime enjoy this dreamy picture!! #Repost @watchmaniac_ron • • • • • Favorite watchmakers lathe #watchmaking #watchmakerslathes #favoritelathe #schaublin #schaublin70 #favoriteswiss #horologicatools #manualmachinist #toolporn #tourhorloger #Horloger #uhrmacherdrehbank #uhrmacherwekzeug #swissmade #swissmachining #precisionmachines #watchmakerslathe #watchmakerstools #watchmakertools #toolsofthetrade #atelier #atelierhorloger #bikemaker #penmaker #modelmaker

What a spread! Just when you thought German lathes might have been forgotten, how's this really cool bench for a refresher? This amazing setup belongs to the very talented watch and clock maker Vincent Gouverneur of @watchclockpassion. I'd take more than a few reposts to give all the details of what's in these pix, but here we have a Wolf Jahn 10mm lathe, two Lorch lathes (looks like 6 and 8mm) and a super complete Bergeon 8mm lathe (made by Dixi of Switzerland).... And yeah, try not to peek behind these beaus as there is a gear cutting machine, an ultra rare Seiko Auto Cleaner 101 (amazing!!!!), and the Elma and Greiner heavy hitters. And more of course! But you should take a moment to check out Vincent's IG page at @watchclockpassion. He works primarily on Breitling pieces but there are plenty of other beautiful clocks, watches and amazing tools on his page. Really worth checking out and connecting with him!! #Repost @watchclockpassion • • • • • #watchmaking #watchmaker #tour #lathe #uhrmacherfraesmachine #uhrmacher #uhrmacherdrehbank #bergeon #lorch #wolfjahn #fraiseuse #tools #clockmaking #etabli #horloger #luxurywatch #flume #uhrmacherwekzeug #horologicaltools #manualmachinist #toolporn #watchrestoration #breitling #clockrepair #clockmaker #bikemaker #knifemaking #workshop #workbench

While many watch collectors seek out vintage watches made on their year of birth, watchmakers of course at times do the same, and just like with vintage watches providing unparalleled quality - vintage tools provide something that we can't just find today. Here's a newly added jewel to the amazing independent watchmaker Hajime Asaoka @hajime_asaoka . Anybody who's familiar with his work knows that he has an exceptional eye for style and design. And the addition of this machine to his workshop just continues this trend in his work. Look at the beautiful curves and lines of the Schaublin 102VM that just landed in his shop!! As the two pix show, the lathe is in excellent condition and after some attention, looks crisp and new. These pictures of course are beautiful and show Hajime's unique vision with everything that works with. Can't wait to see what he does with this beau. If you don't know @hajime_asaoka you need to check his work out now! He combines traditional watchmaking techniques and tools along with CNC ops to make some super outstanding watches - they're just amazing!! I'll be reposting some of his other machines in the future... so in the meantime check him out!! #Repost @hajime_asaoka • • • • • Lathe installed today.

Here's two more recent versions of the Habegger TDLE lathe. This first one is actually a 'TDLG W20' marked lathe and seems to be a very recent example, probably from the last batches of they made before going into making CNC machines only. The interesting aspect is the more modern spindle head design, with the the under drive layout for cabinet setup. Also the levers are to carry out all the different speed velocities (via pulleys) that can be seen are available on the left hand chart. No backgear, but speed reduction via pulley combo. The serial number of 3197 gives us an indication of how many were made, as the other machines from the 1960s had serials in the 1000 range. This pup is currently up for sale by the seller Phil97 (images are their property). The second TDLE, like this one was previously up for sale by the user Kiyomasa (images are their property), and shows yet a third spindle head, with roller bearings. It also has a very rare tailstock, with screws to fine adjustment of counter center. I figured that the more recent version is from the early 1980s while the second one is from the 1970s. These machines a very rare, but if you look now on the web there's a few of them for sale, which doesn't happen often!!! (See Ricardo.ch or Anibis etc sites). I'd like to thank @old_swiss_machines_tools for pointing out some of these machines to me!! Really helpful!!! Habegger has some super amazing machines they made and I'll be coming back to them in a while as there are some IG users who have some super cool models in their workshop! #habeggerlathe #schaublinlathes #watchmakerturning #horologicaltools #habeggertdle #habeggerdrehbank #tourhabegger #habeggerswiss #habeggerjh102 #drehbank #uhrmacherdrehbank #habeggertdle500 #uhrmacherwekzeug #tourhorloger #Horloger #watchmaker #manualmachinist #toolporn #schaublin #modelmaker #toolmaking #knifemaking #gunmakers #jewelrymaking #benchlathe #workbench #moped #bikemaker #HabeggerTDLG #HABEGGERTDLGW20

What's the scoop here? Yup, another Habegger TDLE 500, this time in the workshop of @ankerhemmung. As you see this one is in a loved condition, giving tons of years of service. And as anyone who's been following @ankerhemmung knows, this machine still performs to great specs, the spindle in excellent condition. The great thing of these particular images, which were taken specially for this post- is that we get to see some different and interesting angles on this pup. Love to top view and, of course the way the bed and cross slide is seen. The carriage rests on the outside portions of the bed, and only the tailstock sits on the center portion. Another point of interest is that this machine seems to be of tbe earlier run, with a hammered gray finish paint as the one that is owned by @old_swiss_machines_tools which I posted a few days back. I have one more of these to repost so stay tuned! Enjoy the weekend!!! And please take a moment to visit @ankerhemmung IG page, although he's not posting like crazy, if you follow his stories you'll get to see tons of interesting machines that cross his path - really crazy cool stuff!!!

As we continue looking at the Habegger TDLE 500 lathe, here's what's probably the best picture out there of this super benchtop lathe. This beautiful example, from 1964 - also a Swiss service truck example, is posted Michael Graf's 'antike-mopeds.ch' site (all pix r his property). What's cool about these pictures, is that besides showing what a 'full set' would have looked like (look at the collet/gear rack!) is that it shows how overengineered the auto feed and screw cutting gearbox and apron gears are. Nothing of cheaper options here, straight out crazy engineering to provide overload control and smooth cutting/single point threading here. Really fun to see these pix. Some more pix of this rare Habegger are in store! #habeggerlathe #schaublinlathes #watchmakerturning #horologicaltools #habeggertdle #habeggerdrehbank #tourhabegger #habeggerswiss #habeggerjh102 #drehbank #uhrmacherdrehbank #habeggertdle500 #uhrmacherwekzeug #tourhorloger #Horloger #watchmaker #manualmachinist #toolporn #schaublin #modelmaker #toolmaking #knifemaking #gunmakers #jewelrymaking #benchlathe #workbench #moped #bikemaker #orologiaio #toolsofthetrade

Ok, ok, I left some of you hanging on Friday, but this is worth the wait. Yeah, you say, what's the big deal about just another small sensitive drill? Nope, not at all something ordinary... Look closely at this amazing machine that is used by Jacob Curtis @jrolandc at the Once Upon A Time clock and watch shop. Have you noticed anything odd? Look at the column below the spindle - yes it's got a dovetail! What the heck?! It looks much like a Cowell's sensitive drill, but low and behold it's a Dixi of Le Locle drill. This is an amazing piece of equipment that allows the table holding the workpiece to come up to the spindle knowing that it is still precisely at 90° to the drill. Really a thing of beauty! I had seen many many sensitive drills that all in one way or the other copy Aciera or Dixi designs, but this Dixi I hand never run into before. Please let me know if you have one you'd like to share also! ;) What else is nice on this setup?! Well the precision and very small Albrecht chuck, that's one, and then of course the way that the motor is mounted on the spindle. It's a great and clean solution to have to having the drive belt be 10 miles long going through various pulleys and whatnot. I'm very grateful for Jacob of @jrolandc sharing this very special machine with us here. But stay tuned, there is a super super rare surprise in store in the following days! ;) Please take a moment to check @jrolandc 's account, really great posts and content that is full of cool repairs, and glimpses of rare machines in use :) #OUAT #clockshop #precision #micromachinst #watchmaker #horologicaltools #clockrepair #clockmaker #clockgeek #watchrepair #watchrestoration #manualmachinist #wotd #hodinkee #machinistporn #modelmaker #bikemaker #knifemaking #toolporn #dixidrill #dixilelocle #diximillingmachine #uhrmacherdrehbank #uhrmacher #uhrmacherwekzeug #tourhorloger #tourametaux #perseuse #watchmakerdrill #sensitivedrill

Yup, after some macro machines for more larger clockwork, we move in the different direction here. This is Jacob Curtis' @jrolandc cool Schaublin 70 setup. This machine is a slightly more recently version, from the 1970s, and again had some cool features. Look at the cross slide again ;) yup, zoom, you'll see a digital micrometer to help ensure dead-on diameter cuts. Then we have a cool sensitive drilling tailstock that is not that often encountered on this size Schaublin. What else? (Don't don't look at that height gauge! ;) Fixed belt VFD driven speed control, and again, what I love of this workshop, is the layout of the collets! Super convenient for jumping back and forth from different tasks... And who doesn't envy all the step collets down below the lathe?! With the step collets on the Hardinge 59, they can hold on to any darn mainspring barrel without distorting it in a giff! You should jump over to Jacob's IG account @jrolandc he's started to post some cool machine pix from a trip he's recently done in Germany- really cool lathes he's posted!!! #OUAT #clockshop #precision #micromachinst #watchmaker #horologicaltools #clockrepair #clockmaker #clockgeek #watchrepair #watchrestoration #manualmachinist #wotd #hodinkee #machinistporn #modelmaker #bikemaker #knifemaking #engineering #toolporn #schaublin #schaublin70 #uhrmacherdrehbank #uhrmacher #uhrmacherwekzeug #tourhorloger #tourametaux #lathe #watchmakerlathe
