    Blondfellow,
    Good choice! Those tools will provide a lot more satisfaction than the memory of getting plastered on an ocean cruise and stumbling around the deck in a Toga line.

    Thanks Tom and David. I was told I would need to take a weeks annual leave before the end of the financial year. Too many projects to manage in that time so it was a good opportunity to get a few things I have been hanging out to get for a long time. The timing machine is terrific. I do a lot of battery changes as well as renew crystals so the 200 odd batteries to restock and the UV lamp and glue helps heaps. Just the same $1100 dose not go far even though the timing machine was $400.

    Blondfellow,
    I bought a similar timer from ACE TIMER and automatic watch winding machine from SINCERE CLOCKS. Where did you get yours?

    I got this lot from a local interstate suppler in Queensland, Labanda they sell a good variety of watch supplies and tools. I use them a lot for crystals and batteries etc also some tools as seen here. Not very happy with the winder it does not seem to wind the watches, just goes around but not wind http://www.labanda.com.au

    Blondfellow,
    The winder needs to be mounted in a vertical position in order to work properly. Most people mount them on the wall.
