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 :)

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

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.

Terraqueous: 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: Thanks for the upload.

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

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

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?

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.

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: @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.

Max: 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.

INU311: Im a little confused. Won't the turkey rhubarb cause dependency in the long run since its a laxative?
Proteus Avatár: There's also the exploitation of prison labor due to the loophole in the 13th amendment allowing for the indentured servitude of the incarcerated:
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
Often, they are instead paid a ridiculously low wage because "real slaves" are technically unpaid.  With the advent of the privatization of the incarceration system, I wonder how much money private interests make off of the work of practically indentured inmates.

Dynasty Nicole: Is that edge stick available for purchase?
Belinda Neal: I must be one of the few who wasn't so excited by this. Being a huge fan in my mid 40's I didn't want a musical episode and least of all school girls putting on a production of the show. It felt like I was watching an episode of Glee. If it was a rock musical then maybe, it might have worked. I am still on the fence about it, because not so many adults were in this production, and that Marie was a little on the rude side for my taste.  Becky Rosen was one fan who still annoys me, because the writers feel that us fans are like Becky, I am no where near Becky or Marie. I love the boys and the crew all work so hard, but I felt a bit let down. Sorry to be negative when your review is so upbeat. Jensen did actually talk to Robbie Thompson because he was also concerned about certain stuff, so I get the feeling the boys were not happy either. 
GoldenWolf248: This is so cute! I loved watching! Great job! :)
LadyofLight: Is it just me or is the second round the hardest?!!
