During my many years of writing in the field of clockmaking and modelmaking, when there was an unusual shop technique under way or a different tool in use, I switched from a B & W camera to a color slide camera. As a result, I ended up with an extremely large number of color slides. A few of these were used for lectures at National and Regional conventions.
For a long time, I puzzled as to how I could get this valuable information to those who needed it. Finally, I discovered a way to add the slides to the digital tape in my camcorder, along with audio and a pointer and without the need to project them on a screen. This was done and a DVD made from the tape. By limiting the length of the discussion of each, it was possible to put on a 2-hour DVD the equivalent of many lecture room lectures. This DVD covers an extreme range of workshop tooling and can help the viewer select the direction in which he would like his workshop tooling to go without the purchase of expensive and the wrong type equipment. This DVD contains information learned over 70 years of workshop practice in the fields of watchmaking, clockmaking, general mechanics and mechanical engineering.
