Kickstarter Project Update #4: Turning Slugs into Pen Blanks
Hope everyone is staying bundled up out there. We're having a cold spell in Phoenix right now, I had to dig out a flannel shirt this morning. It's brutal I tell you.
People have been asking me on IG and FB about how we turn the Zirc slugs into pens. Short version, it starts on the mill. If you want to see why we do that and how that actually works, check out the video below:
In other news, I'm flying out to Dallas later today to visit my buddy Will at Tactile Turn. We're working on a small video project together, it's a documentary on small-company manufacturing. I'll be out of the shop for a day or two but who knows... while I'm out there I might learn something.
Stay warm everyone.
