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.

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

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.

Sulli11: Something I want to ask about the Atlatl dart and the Atlatl its self is if instead of a drilled end what will happen with a fork end. I already have one I made from a small sapling and it is somewhat accurate. But the weird thing is that it spins, I have no fletching, Just this fork. So, Could I consider this a benefit or a defect?

A Kid From Africa: A guy dies and is sent to hell. Satan meets him, shows him doors to three rooms, and says he must choose one to spend eternity in. In the first room, people are standing in dirt up to their necks. The guy says, ‘No, let me see the next room.’ In the second room, people are standing in dirt up to their noses. Guy says no again. Finally Satan opens the third room. People are standing with dirt up to their knees, drinking coffee and eating pastries. The guy says, ‘I pick this room.’ Satan says Ok and starts to leave, and the guy wades in and starts pouring some coffee. On the way out Satan yells, ‘OK, coffee break’s over. Everyone back on your heads!’
