$5 grab bag of various tools I picked up at the mart today. Nice Swiss movement holder, good for those cartouche movements. Some pushers and pin vises. Others have no clue what they are used for. ;-)

The figure-8 looking thing is a trueing caliper. Should have a wrench with it but well worth $5. Used mine yesterday with the restaffing job I did. The wood block I think is a case holder. Yellow thing I think is also a movement holder.

So is this the AWCC meetings?

Didn't dawn on me those yellow rings are holders. The wood block is a movement holder, 2 in one, both sides can be used for different sizes.

You let them. I assume torture and threats were involved though.

When the nomination for president came to the table 10 minutes went by without one coming forward, so they went onto vice. How lame...I was sitting by my school instructor, I raised my hand and nominated him for president. He laughed and said I'll only accept if you accept the nomination for vice. Yeah so I was bribed but I started the whole thing, go figure...

That then is a good approach to it.

You called that right ticker! Twisted Evil Now I've been roped into being a red cap for our regional in May. I was lured by folks saying you get to see what comes in first and have first dibs. Fish bait for the biggest fish around!
