Ok I know this is strange and most likely not posted in the correct spot but here goes. I am looking for wind up clock repair tools. I may not be able to do much woodworking any more and looking for a hobby the I can handel with a bad shoulder. I’ve tried the internet but not fining much in used tools and new ones s little pricey for just starting out. Hey if you have any old wind up clocks sitting around that don’t work you might want to part with let me know. I need the practice and the wife won’t let tear apart our mantel clock

Oakdust GET A SCROLL SAW! It does not hurt and your artistry in wood can continue and if you want, put a clock inside your woodwork…

Thanks John I never thought about looking for Jewler’s tools. I have a bid on book on ebay now and bought a clock from there. I never thought about the Scroll Saw thing either, but sounds like a good idea. I have some old patterns I can dig out and give it a try.

I agree with Kindlingmaker. A scroll saw would be easy enough to use. I have hurt numerous parts of my body over the years and could use my scroll saw as long as my hands were okay. If you get tired of your old patterns, just Google scroll saw patterns and you can find free ones and ones to buy. Hope the shoulder gets better and Good Luck with the new hobby.
