Building My New Watch Repair Workshop.

Recommended Posts

I forgot to ask Mark, what Radio station do you find more relaxing whilst working?  I have tried Radio one, but its like listening to a loop, they always play the same songs lol

Nice job, Mark - definitely droolworthy! And you sure do have a nice, extensive collection of tools and equipment.

 

I always remember something that my Dad told me a LONG time ago, about buying cheap tools:

 

"The quality is remembered long after the cost is forgotten".

 

Good advice, I reckon. :)

Thought I would give it a test run today. The height of the bench is perfect for me - no more bent back, this is really good.

 

Unfortunately it feels very strange not working on a bergeon work mat, in fact it feels like i'm doing something naughty! New one on order :)

 

Here's a couple more pics:

 

I could prolly increase the light in the room by another 20% when I clean all the dust off the windows :D

 

Hi I just watched (no pun intendeed) your new work place - superb! I am sure that many of us will like you less from now on because of that bright and cool place. I am getting ready to arrange my better work place so I am sure to still some of your ideas.

 

Regards

ps. DO not worry about the dust on the windows - it just adds necessary patina to the workshop. :-)

 

Ciao

Micky,

 

I managed to find this company which specialise in retail shop outfitting:

 

http://www.morland-uk.com/shop/shop-fit-out/laminate-sheets/egger-hpl-laminate-u628st15.html

 

It's expensive stuff but I think it's worth it.

 

There are many Youtube videos showing how to apply it using contact adhesive.

Well I have finally got the date for when we can move back into our much larger premises, and thought it time to order a roll of this covering so I can start my refurb of workspace. Sadly however, the company doesn't ship outside of the UK :(  The only option when I filled out the order forum, was UK.

I have emailed them, and also found another UK supplier who offers the same sized roll, I emailed them too, so now just need to wait.  If they don't ship here, I may ask one of you good UK guys to tranship to me if possible.  Of course I will cover shipping, plus some beer tokens :)

If I can help out just let me know. :)

Thanks G, will let you know, as I have now also emailed another company in the Nordic region, Denmark who also sell this covering, I will give them a few days, and if they don't get back to me, I will call on your assistance :)
