Did this video help you?

Nate Blubaugh: You are shaking like a leaf! I can literally hear how much your shaking when your putting parts in :)

Michael Mullin: Absolutely fascinating video. Thank you so much for taking the time to post this!

Terraqueous Onkos: Woah...you FOUND a dropped screw? I've tried looking for a tiny screw like that before. Wow. Then again, it was a rugged floor.

Terraqueous Onkos: Thanks for the upload.

bunnspecial: @ElginPocketwatch If the part is steel I got about a 50 percent chance of finding it because I use a magnet. If it is nonmagnetic about 25 percent. I have hard wood floors so the parts must bounce pretty far for me not to find them. I sweep the floor every now and then and look at it with a loupe and go over it with a magnet to see if can find any lost parts. Maybe you can find acrylic at Home Depot or an arts store. You could probably use plexiglass instead.

crohrer1: Seeing you drop those screws reminds me of a question. Where do you find replacements for broken or lost parts on these older watches? Screws? Springs? Gear train?

David Gompper: Hey, I've watched alot of your videos and they're really great. I have a question. I've seen you use a variety of tweezers, different sizes and styles. Can you list the ones you have? ...or at least the ones you think people would use most often? There were some stubby ones I was especially curious about as it looks like you use them often to pick up big parts. Thanks and keep'em coming!

bunnspecial: @ducatiowa I can only tell you what I have. I am not fully satisfied with them but they seem to work. They have numbers on them which I guess refers to the tip style. The one I use the most and is used in this video have HH written on them. The next pair I use is 2. Others in the set are 1, 2A, 3, 4. There must be a chart somewhere that shows all of the styles. I made a video and will post it next week showing most of the tools that I have. Many have supporting roles in my videos.

bunnspecial: Thank you. I have done more videos like this. You should check them out.

Alex B.: "I'll be dipped in crap"

Terraqueous Onkos: Thank you for the pointers. I'll try that!

ElginPocketwatch: Yeah, its a freakin' pain when screws fall onto the floor, its like a black hole. I once met another watch repairer and he said when he works on watches, he has a platform with acrylic walls so when something like a screw bounces halfway to timbukto, it just hits the wall, I dont have a clue where to find acrylic stuff however.

bunnspecial: My floor is hard wood so if I can't see the screw I use a magnet and that usually does the trick. I am surprised at how for those screws can travel once they hit the floor. The way to find things on a rugged floor is to use a vaccum with panty hose over the nozzle to keep the screw from being sucked in. Never tried it but it sounds like it would work.

watcherman65: I'm torn between the kx1 or the k1.. any thoughts? ..thanks for sharing this video your radio looks FB...
Jaesung Kim: YOU SHOULD WARN PEOPLE NOT TO TRY THIS. It is common sense in Korea that using tong ah can injure an archer badly if the one is not experienced enough. Short arrows can slip off from it and hit your hand in any time, leaving permanant disability. Even the ones who mastered tong ah do get hurt if they are not cautious. I'm sincerely warning you to quit using it. It is not a skill you can learn by reading books or watching videos.
Queenbibey: einfach nur geil :D Alex I LOVE YOU =P
Sandi Putra: i'd like too see it draw something...
Gabby Christian: Where did you buy it at?
artsygirlify: WOW she talks - with an accent! im so used to seeing her on her instagram and fb pictures.
