Your Clock and Watchmaking Tip Could Go Here

If you have any examples of things you have done to make your projects go easier, send them to us and we will add them to this section for all to share. Just send a sample part, a photo, a simple sketch or a written description. Our graphics department will do an illustration or digital photo like the ones shown in the tips below if necessary.

It can be a simple suggestion or special part, but if it makes your life easier, why not share it with others? We look forward to expanding this section of the site with your suggestions. We can’t offer fortune, but we can at least offer some measure of fame. Thousands of other machinists might see and benefit from your suggestion. You may send your suggestions to us by mail, fax or email as follows:
