I'm a hobby watch assembler currently... and I'm wanting to tackle watchmaking as a hobby (expensive hobby i know) and I am looking for some advice on what kind of machines I should be budgeting for. My requirements are pretty straight forward I need a mill and some way to turn work either on that mill or on a dedicated machine(I think I could get away with turning the work in a rotary table around an end-mill instead of CNC of the 3 axis on the mill); I'm also strongly wanting a way to rotate the work in the mill perpendicular to the axis of the spindle on a, index-able tilt, index-able rotary table, to access more than one side of the work. That rotary can be manual as it is only for quick precision indexing of the work. Unfortunately i have not been able to find such a table, so perhaps someone's googlefu is more powerful than mine? I've thought about the possibility of purchasing a 3 axis mill and then making a rotary table on it, for it. It does not seem incredibly difficult, if incredibly time consuming. but hey it's a hobby. I don't necessarily need 5 axis(and would probably not be able to afford anything resembling a full CNC 5 axis machine), but i need access to all 5 sides of the work and not having to re-clamp the work for machining on each side would save an incredible amount of time making cases. As for what I need out of the machine I don't really know how to better explain it than to explain the kind of parts I would be making. I'd be making predominantly: Gears, with a module of 0.2 - 1 mm (tiny). Plates, for those gears to set inside of with press fit pockets for jewel bearings. Cases, requiring significantly more power, and less accuracy from the machine and also being the only part that would really benefit from that rotary table. Screws of many different kinds and many different sizes including screws with a hole down it's axis. Pushers and crowns, having pockets at the base of a long shaft. Any help on locating equipment sufficient to my needs will be rewarded with a digital chocolate chip cookie. Thanks in advance. The written word isn't my strongest suit, I did my best to make my disorganized and disjointed thoughts understandable but if clarification is needed somewhere please let me know.
