Welcome Make Readers

by Jordan Ficklin


Some of you reading this may be joining us from Make Magazine. An article in this month’s series on Lost Knowledge features some photos of my shop. Those of you who don’t subscribe to the magazine may still enjoy a photo montage on their webpage.

For those of you reading this blog for the first time here are some posts you might enjoy:

  • Tuesday Tools is a semi-regular column describing some of the peculiar tools used in the world of watchmaking.
  • Tick Talk is the post that started it all and it gives a brief run down of how I got involved in this fantastic profession.
  • Lititz Watch Technicum describes some of my experiences while in school and includes a link to a continuation of the story as I learned micromechanical skills as well as watch repair skills.
  • Posts by J. Edwards give the perspective of a Canadian watchmaker who graduated from the Canada School of Horology.
  • In A balance Staff I document the manufacture of a custom balance staff for an antique swiss pocket watch.
  • And of course the Archives you’ll find a list of all the posts.

    Nice photo montage, J.Peter. Did you take most of the shots yourself? Or did Make bring in a professional photographer?
