One of them had a shop in a local mall where he could work and have people watch. Sometimes if business was slow he would put in a piece of metal and start turning a mans ring in Brass or whatever he had laying around. He said by the time he was done two or three people would be in the store looking at jewelry or watches. The other watchmaker liked to keep to himself and had a workshop at home. Both had top quality tools and parts and both took very good care of them. Item: 5 inch by 12 inch High precision lathe. Condition/Notes: I have tested this Lathe and it works great.
