Welcome to the forum ibigler. In the U.S. we call them benches (don't ask why).I was wondering if any of you have built your own watchmaking desks? Or if you know where I would be able to find plans to make one? Also, if you have any pictures of your current setup (i.e. work station) that would be very helpful. Thanks guys -Ian
Hey Pithy,Welcome to the forum ibigler. In the U.S. we call them benches (don't ask why).
Most questions have been asked before - some of them many times. Some of the previous answers were OK, maybe some of them could be improved on. Nothing in the forum rules prohibits posters from asking the same question over and over again. In fact, after a while this repetition of previously posed questions become fairly entertaining for those of us that don't have lives and spend way to much time here. [Are some of the posters maybe shopping for a different answer?]
One of my personal favorites is: What size crystal does my "Razor" by "Thermonuclear" require. Did I get that right MP? This type of query pre-supposes that the watchmaking forum participants actually know what is currently going on in the popular wristwatch market and have memorized the complete catalogues of every obscure dive/pilot watch brand sold for the last 10 years. News Flash to the outside world: Many of us consider anything after WW II as a fairly new watch and are for the most part more interested in what is under the hood than . . . . . .
Another oft repeated question (and a personal favorite that for some reason makes me chuckle every time I hear it): Where can I buy unique watch cases? I'm not satisified with what Xxxxxxxx or Yyyyyyyy sells. Or the grand variation on it: I have decided to start my own watch company and manufacture a unique line of exclusive watches and by the way, how do you . . . . . . . . . .
Anyway - thanks for the chuckle. And what ever you do, please don't tell anyone that we have a search function and that if you go the advanced feature and limit the query to this forum and in your case use the keyword - bench - that we will be deprived of more entertainment.
