Guys:

Because I am so broke from buying tools and machines ;), I’m just using the seven jar method described in the Chicago School fo Watchmaking, lesson #10. I clean everything that way with the exception of the dial, the mainspring (which I replace), the hairspring (I use One Dip), and shellaced-in jewels (I run them through everything but the alcohol).

I found the green soap here:

I like David’s Naptha/Ultrasonic method and plan to eventually go that way unless he finds the L&R machine to be superior. Until then, I’ll just keep slogging along the old fashioned way. :)

Later,
Tom
