    Hey snake,

    If your really interested I believe I still have to tested sheet displaying the voltage on the output voltages of my transformer. This way when you get a new transformer rewound to take the input voltage of euro and step it down. It will be easier to talk to someone who re does vintage or transformer rewinding in your area.



    You can see they re used the core of the old transformer so it will fit back into the machine. The insulated wrapping and new wire wound along with it dipped in lacquer. So nice looking. Let me add by saying that if you do that have them lacquer the coils of the transducers. Or if you have the stuff your self you can dip it in lacquer and bake it in a oven.

    No problem snake always my pleasure, if you have more questions later on you know where to find me. It took me almost a year to slowly fund the refurbish part of the wt model.

    So today I'm started disassembling the units to get them prepped for new wiring and eventually new other stuff like paint and electronics.

    I'll take some time completing, gotta slowly fund money into the project. Hopefully I'll have it all complete before I need to relocated in October/November.

    Re: Help with info on watchmaster ultrasonic cleaner WT

    So, for the one you finished recently, does it work well and clean movements effectively?
    I have a 1950's 3 bath plus heater watch cleaner. It works pretty well but I did fancy the ultrasonic machine you have.

    There was one on the bay and that went for £150. Didn't really have the funds at that time.
    Anyway, will keep my eye open for one.

    I cleaned up this Hamilton 918 movement with my watchmaster wt. I remove the set jewels and put them in separate baskets. The plates in another holder then the wheels and everything else in the thimble baskets. I'm really satisfied and I'll post a better photo of the movement later when I get a chance.

    Don't laugh at my plastic holder my wooden one was being used for another watch. I love my machine and can't wait to get the wt markII completed.

    Also it's hard to get good photos on my iPhone at the desk. Some reason the fluorescent lighting creates red base lines at different angles.

    Certainly looks clean. I guess it should be a lot more effective than my old cleaner.
