    Hey!

    Hey! I am new here so thought i would just say hello and tell you a bit about myself.
    I am 25, live on the North Coast of Ireland, my family have had a jewellery store here for 125 years & i have been doing the DLC course for the BHI, as well as an apprenticeship with an old clockmaker. I love working on Clocks, mainly restoration, but i am trying to do more work and get into pocket watch restoration, as well as watch repair. My main problem though is that i have bad self confidence, so until i get my level up to a standard i am happy with, i am too afraid to take on big projects for people. But i am getting over this :)

    Anyway, i have been a lurker on here for a while, and just thought it was time that i started posting and get more involved on here, since we all share a common passion :)

    As for watches, i am very into the vintage style wristwatches, i am working on an old Hebdomas pocket watch at the minute, (minus the dial :'().

    I look forward to becoming part of this great online community :D

    Cheers :)

    Re: Hey!

    Welcome to WUS!!!

    I look forward to hearing about some of your projects and hope you enjoy the great atmosphere here!

    Also, no 'welcome' post would be complete without the time-honoured tradition of:

    "Sorry about your wallet!!!"

    Kind Regards
    James

    Re: Hey!

    Haha, thanks guys :)

    Definitely true about the bank balance, mines is already hurting..

    I was very lucky when i started though, i found an add on a local freecycle for a guy giving away all his grandfathers old tools and stuff so that helped me out a lot.
    Its expensive upgrading though.. But, its an investment :)
