    The Good Ol' Work Bench,

    I wanted to share a link to our most recent blog post about getting started in Watch Repair and Maintenance. We go over places to acquire tools, supplies, and even the best places to set up your Watchmakers Bench (pun intended on the board location).

    Love to hear more from the TKF forum here on what you would add to our list of things needed to get started repairing your own watches.

    Check out the Blog Here.

    We officially have a starter tool kit from Esslinger, cleaning solution from OttoFrie, and a link back to the "Work Bench" here people can use to ask questions on tasks they are trying to complete at home.

    Cheers!

    We came across a possible supply for watch technician tools: greenstarstools.com. Has anyone done any business with these guys yet?
