    Here’s my “shop”. One of the great things about this hobby is how little space it takes up. I’ve since added a lathe, Watchmaster cleaning machine, and a few other odds and ends, but it still fits nicely in the spare room.

    Hey ACHiPo , very nice set up ;) , is that the Bergeon automatic oiler stand I see?? cant wait to see the lathe..looks like your set to go and now that you have caught the disease pretty soon you will be adding a addition to your place for all the future tooling and things, haha :D Have fun, William

    William,
    Thanks. I have one of the Bergeon auto oilers that I got with a bunch of eBay stuff, but it needs cleaning and I’m not terribly sure how to use it, so I stick with my manual set.

    The lathe is pretty sweet. It is a full Leinen-Boley Reform kit, with collets, saw, jacot, drilling attachment, and a bunch more stuff I haven’t figured out yet. I got a great deal largely because it was missing a tail stock, but I located one thanks to Keith WIlliamson of Watch Tools Online, so now I’ve got a fully functioning kit.

    Hi Evan, a fantastic start!
    Just be wary of the tool buying bug, I think just about everyone on the forum has it now :)

    Paul,
    Way too late for that! The tools are still expensive, but they sure take up a lot less room!

    When the “disease” gets very bad you will find yourself buying tools on e-bay that you dont need but “they might come in handy one day”
    😯
