Welcome to the club.

I play with watches and some light hobby metal working. The two go hand in hand. Always nice to be able to make a tool or part you need.
Are you locate din Calgary?

Hello I am new to this organization. The reason I joined is that I repair antique clocks and I often have to fabricate parts to have the clocks function again. I have purchased a mini lathe and I have two small mini lathes for use in this regard. I am looking to purchase a mini mill as it will also be useful in this function. I am constantly on the hunt for new information and new ways of doing things.
