Ok I am new here so I am sure This has been asked before.  I am an artist and one of the thing I really enjoy is taking apart stuff and to fine all the interesting parts.  Now recently I have started playing with dead pocket watches and the like.  After reading some of the threads here several times it has come up that a good set of jewelers screwdrivers is a must for working on pocket watches and the like.  My question is this Where do I find /buy a good set and how do I know it is a good set.   Also how much should I expect to pay? 

Thank you

try here -- fair warning though

you can spend a boatload of money there if you want "tiny tools"

I've ordered from them in the past and was very happy with what I recieved

And if you want to go the cheapy way,you could get a set from the dollar store and fine tune them with some sandpaper-that is if you only have 1 or 2 or so watches to take apart.Then again I've used mine for quite some time now with good results.
