Here's just a straight-out fun image of this rare carl zeiss dial indicator on a mitutoyo gauge stand. what's this cool measuring instrument doing here in this watchmakers feed? well as any of who have done troubleshooting with watches know, after doing all the routine checks and still getting a poor transmission of power on the gear train, you can use this to check the correct thickness of movement plates - or more specifically to see if any bridges are bent (which of course has a dramatic effect on timekeeping). but a micrometer of this nature, which can measure to the nearest 0.001mm deviation is most useful when replacing broken jewels. measuring the depth before and after changing a jewel guarantees proper end shake and proper specs are kept.
there are tons of other uses for a depth gauge as this in a shop, but i couldn't pass up the opportunity to share this killer image of an oft used tool! makes me want to make a large poster of it ;) very 1940s styling!
if you haven't run into the photographer's who did thia image go check him out idon cair of @feinmechaniker is a photographer and machinist who has cool pix on his feed of various projects and of course, nice photography! check out his feed if you have some time!
Happy birthday to the one who has the most patience with me and encourages me to chase my dreams. i thank you for always putting up with my s**t and helping me understand and view life in difference perspectives. #hatersgonnahate#leicam240#carlzeiss#voigtlander
