Here's my favorite picture - for obvious reasons. I won't be upset if you really don't notice me at all:
One of Windy & me on vacation:
Here's the only picture I have of me, my girlfriend and I had Christmas at my apartment, it was our first tree.
That was my backyard, on the other side of the sea grass is the Hudson River.And Yes the the bench a work from. I'm a watchmaker ,I thought you already knew that, sorry...................Jesse
Wow Jesse, I didn't know.
Would you ever be interested in starting a thread about getting the right tools for watch making? I am EXTREMELY interested in doing this as a hobby and the crummy 8 dollar SE tool sets somehow don't seem to be professional. I just bought some Miha anti static tweezers for a project I'm working on.
Any thoughts or would you ever want to start a thread?
That's not a bad idea, maybe Adam and I could put something together. A GOOD starter set will run you about $250 and another $50 -75 in books.I've spent about 100k on tools and material in the past 20 years . I not cheap to do correctly. For the money I suggested that will get you pulling things apart , hand cleaning them and manually regulating them .Thats how I started 22yrs ago.then 2yrs WM school, 3.5 yrs apprenticing then wostep and speacialty training
I'm very impressed! Do you have any pictures of things you have repaired?
What is your focus? Restoration? Creation? Repair?
I'm very interested to learn! I found a video on youtube last night where someone put together a Valjoux movement. It looked relatively simple and fun!
Yeah take a look in the GD section , I posted my first pics and on my member page check out my albums
