Thank you, all for the friendly welcome. To answer the questions brought up; no, I am not a farrier, I interpret the blacksmith trade at the High Point Museum Historical Park, in High Point, North Carolina, USA. My smithing skills don't help much with tinkering with my watches, rather the other way around. Watchmaking has helped teach me patience. Oldhippy, I am fascinated by the history of the blacksmith/clock maker, and their involvement in early tower clock building and repair.
Hi, I am a new member. My name is James, but I go by Jimmy. I am a blacksmith, with a love of pocket watches, particularly key winds. I do a little tinkering on watches in my collection from time to time. A good friend, and new member, Sterling, knowing of my interest in watches, sent me this link.
