I love the pace and detail in your explanation and videos. I have done the teardown of an 6498 clone and was able to follow along and successfully get all the parts into the parts box without losing any.
I now have to order my oils and am practicing some reassembly steps while i wait for the oils to come. I will then clean, oil and rebuild it.
Super fun. I want to start making my own designs and have a proof of concept dial that i have made on a CNC machine I have.
