French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Watchmaking
French term or phrase:rodage au fil
This term refers to traditional watchmaking techniques:
"...le rodage au fil, le polissage des ailes à la meule de bois..."
I think this probably means using wire to fill in slight irregularities or, for restoration work, it could be about repairs to enamel. However, watchmaking is a very specialised area that I'm not famiiar with.
