    New Life For a Broken Watch

    What do you do with a low cost watch that just broke off of your wrist? Maybe toss it into the trash or, even worse, toss it into a drawer where it is still trash but now occupies space.

    Instead, why not modify it for use in your workshop? Then, as you remove your new watch before operating your lathe or mill, you can still know the time.
