Yup, works great! I like it better than the one with the screw thingy that pushes the pin out.

Don,

Thanks. I know you adjust your bracelets and have had a few watches. Do you own the name brand that costs $200 or so or the India made one that costs $40 or so? Ofrei says that the India one is fine and when you replace the tips you can use the ones from the $200 model.

The India version is 180-INDIA for $34.50
about half way down the page.

Robert, I don't think I even paid that much but he is right, the tips just screw out and you can replace them. I think mine came with 5 extra tips.

I use a hand held Punch type Pin Pusher. Why the need for a machine type press? Anyone use this type tool to adjust their bracelets? Icon_scratch

I just bought the set of punches, the large block, a few extra tips for each....not the whole contraption.

Seems like a good deal Doc.....

I also own the yellow one thats about 1/2 way down, it's just the block with the slots for the bracelet that came with 2 different sized pin tools that you use with a small mallet. I use that one the most as it is very easy to set up and use. I also have a pair of Bosch & Lomb magnifying goggles that are exactly the same as the set at the top of the link. This is one Hell of a good price, mine did come with 3 different lenses but I paid much more than that. Wearing them while you work on your watches ensures you won't scratch the sides of the links when you go to push out the pins. I also use them to get a good view when I am refinishing my watches, very handy to have.

I use the block and punch method as well. More manueverable IMO, than the device pictured. Mine are from Bergeon and are complete with the must have "Swiss Made" designation. Fairly pricey for what they are, but have worked for years.
