Well I had a disaster this afternoon while working on my 5513.
I had a 5513 Cartel watch from Perfect Clones.
I was planning on modding it fully.
I was drilling the lugs out to accept the gen size bars, when I was having real difficulty with one of the lugs in particular.
The drill bit snapped off inside the lug and I feared the worst, but after some banging about I managed to get it out. While there was a small "hole" after this, going all the way the lug, it was way too thin. So I put in a fresh drill bit and re-drilled the hole. The drill was literally red hot and when I took it out, it seems to have fused with the case (lug).
Anyway, I used a dremmel with 1.3mm tungsten bits, I ending up going through about 9 bits, all of which were destroyed while trying to drill this lug. The result is a complete mess and a totally destroyed and useless case.
I am totally gutted to say the least! Just don't understand what I did wrong! I used a little oil as I thought this would stop any sticking, could it be this has heated up too much? Would I have been better using nothing. What drills should I use?
Anyway, I feel like a complete idiot now, and really sick at the money I have now lost with this project.
Here is the nasty result of my butchered case....
So my question is guys, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a suitable case I could buy? I would like to try and salvage something out of this.
Mine had the 21j 2813 movement, and I have Yuki insert and Athaya crown and tube, etc.
I just need to find a replacement case.
