      Re: Shop Clock/Timer

      I just have a cheap battery operated clock on the wall. I take a mental note of time when I finish a task that requires timing and that's about it. None of the tasks you mentioned require split-second timing. When I want to know the time I just look at, no need for any type of commands to get the data.

          As I am not the music officianado that some are on this forum, I just have a digital clock radio that has an alarm clock on it that I can set if I need to.

That got me thinking that the ideal shop clock/timer would be one that is voice activated so you can ask for the time to be announced or set a timer. I might try an old cell phone plugged in permanently but wondering if anyone has another solution?
            I have an old phone that is plugged into an old stereo for shop music. I'll have to try using it for a timer. Thanks for the idea.

              I have a "Mastercraft sawblade clock" I received some time in the curtained off lathe area. I put batteries in it when they no longer work in remotes, etc, as there's always some power left.
              I have a clock radio I sometimes use, when I'm in the 10x10 shop.
              I have an old bbq thermometer timer clock I use when I'm putting in my earplugs. I think they're the original batteries
