Automatic Watch Winder DIY

2009-Oct-10
 
Since this is the first time making a watch winder and we try to spend as little money as possible, we can only "try and error" put all parts together.
Watch Winder Installation - 1 The power supply socket was glued on the plate by Super Glue.
Watch Winder Installation - 2 The metal plate is also "rubbish" from an old desk top computer case.
Watch Winder Installation - 3 The motor is mounted vertically on the CD-R container base.
Watch Winder Installation - 4

A metal plate is used to wrap the motor in order to reduce the strength of the magnetism of the motor.

Actually, the magnetic field cannot be blocked or canceled, we can only redirect it to other direction rather than going to the wrist watches.

More information, please search the Internet with the key word: Magnetic Shielding.

Watch Winder Installation - 4a The axle between the universal joint and the motor is made of wires. A steel rod would be much better to be this axle.
Watch Winder Installation - 5 See it on the opposite side.
