I am gradually falling down the rabbit hole I’m picking up a handful of cheap oils, an oiler, and .8mm and .5mm screwdrivers, to breakdown some old trash watches (having already broken my DIY watch, #oops.)
Looking at the longer term, the DIY toolkit feels very solid and I don’t imagine having to replace most of it, EXCEPT:
- Are the tweezers made out of steel? I’m reading silicon or aluminum are ideal. Is this something I should plan to upgrade at a later date?
- How long is the Rodico good for? What tells you it needs to be replaced?
What else should I plan to swap out at a later date? (I don’t have a budget for a cleaner, and my iPhone provides the timegrapher for now, but I know those are both next steps, plus a GMT hand-setter when I get to that build.)
