    Trying to make a watch from movement to case on a small budget isn't easy, lol.

    I'm sharing space in a shop with my little CNC and have to be careful which power plugs I use. One, which killed the laptop, the plugs don't fit tight in the outlet and slip out (slow, unnoticed laptop power death). If I plug the CNC to a different plug it ends up being on the same circuit at the shop compressor and when that thing kicks on it sucks up enough current to kill my CNC spindle power leading to broken cutters.

    But must, slowly, keep going with what I have.

    They managed it in the 1800s before electricity, I'm sure you'll pull through.
