$20,000 Of Titanium… Wasted!
Honestly, it’s not quite as dramatic as it sounds (but it is still very real).
Take a look at this photo:
Now, truthfully, I really don’t know if it’s $20,000 of titanium …it could be $10,000 …or it could be $30,000.
The above photo is my “scrap box” of questionable prototypes, quality-control failures, mis-cuts, bad-finishes, forehead-slapping silly mistakes, … and pretty well damn near everything that can’t be offered for sale.
I’m making less and less of these mistakes – but I doubt they will even completely disappear. I have no real reason for showing you thing …just thought you might be interested in pointing-and-laughing at me and my screw-ups a little bit. 😛
A cool new project I think is worthy of your attention:
It’s just launching as I write this. One of the reasons for telling you about this project is that I’m doing the surface finishing for the titanium beads.
Over the last few weeks — with dozens upon dozens of hours testing and tweaking — I’ve managed to get a mirror-finish polish on these beads. Check them out:
So, yeah, you can check out the project by clicking here.
I’ve been very quiet recently and so I’m going to do my damn best to get more prototypes and such out to show you. 🙂
P.S. Oh, and just to anticipate someone asking me if they can have some of the “rejects” …please understand that I don’t let anything out of the workshop that isn’t 100% passed quality control. If it’s not perfect then it’s into the trash!
