    The recent Tasks: … I made a jig for precise alignment of the tube sections and additionally threaded the dial and inserted the shafts for the static deco gear parts..
    An idea.. Create some Unexpected lumed parts (pipes) inside the mechanism... That will give some awesome effects and sinds the open look enough I light to keep parts lumed for the night...

    Thats why I put the oil glas in.. hope to get some luminescent PMMA material to build a lumed core from .. some radioactive green or light red should help.

    Also thought to build a LED into the glas tube but the necessary current would significantly decrease the battery life of that small thing...

    @FubarCle Most fun is to be totally free to follow your ideas and bring things together. With much less friction and discussions as in the regular job. Thats a work life balance which I like to live!

    Mechanic.. in case of a led a pendulum switch and a single shot mimic. But for the glowing effect just chemistry.. we will see first I would have to do some experiments to find out how long and how bright this could work.. radium laquer would be the best when it comes fo functionallity but not for me.. no isotopes for me..

    Sry missed your question on the gaskets. Originally there will be a small rubber form gasket one in a groove below the crystal and one on the bottom part those should be 0.3mm diametre - not very strong. But strong enough that my modelling board would not compress them.. and as I do not have a vulcanzation press here
    I integrated the shape into the frame . Not really visible.

    Today I installed the movement holder pins, I turned yesterday.
    I routed the deco gears and pinions as a acrylic glass compartment for the movement.
