Hello from North Carolina

Hello Cody,

I was remiss in not welcoming you here before now but like yourself I am a fellow learner and tinkerer.  The hobby can take over if you don't watch out, in fact it can take over even if you do watch out. 

You have already started on some projects and will have had trials and tribulations (starting to sound like a horoscope) but generally get the tools you need only for what you want to work on, but I think you may have found that screwdrivers and tweezers have to be a decent quality.

Cheers,

Vic

I didn't intend it that way, I misspoke. I literally do that though, I will go all out on a project spending a fortune and then realize I could have saved a lot of money by making it myself or improvising. And I definitely agree, you want the right tool for the job but I think a beginner can get by OK without high end tools to start with. I have like a $20 "watch repair kit" from amazon thats got a lot of useful things in it. That being said I have already went through and upgraded most of those tools so...lol

I know what you mean ...there are a lot of things that you don't need to spend a lot on and can even make yourself. Items like Douglas1701 made.

Hi Cody, I'm in Northern California too. Welcome! Feel free to come by our San Francisco watch repair shop to say hi if you ever get the chance. BTW, I love those woodworking watch repair tools.

lol! I totally read that wrong! Speaking of long hikes, what type of watch do you like to wear in the outdoors?
