How The ‘CandyCan™’ Is Made (Video)

​First up today ...a video!

It's been a long time since I did any kind of video - so over the weekend I thought I'd do a "How It's Made" for the new CandyCan™.

The video is just machining (with some music thrown in for good measure) - none of me talking this time! 😀

Oh, and I don't show the tumbling/finishing process in this video - just the cnc-machining part.

​Also, the CandyCan™​ can be found for sale here (it will likely be sold out - but please do enter your name and email on the page to be notified before everyone else when I next have some available).

Titanium "Twist" Pen

​Very soon (as early as 24 hours from right now as I type this) the NEW Titanium Twist Pen will be launching on Kickstarter.

​Die-hard fans have already been emailing me trying to find out exactly when the launch is - so, hopefully, this should be a somewhat popular project. ​If you're on my email list, then you will received an email when it goes live.

​The thing about workshops is ...air is almost as important as electricity.

Not just any old air. But air that is ...clean ...dry ...and, of course, ​plentiful!

For the last year we've been struggling along with a very small air compressor that we were sure was going to give up any day. And, today, it finally gave up and died a semi-peaceful death (although it did make a weird metal clanging sound as as it passed away and started making it's journey to air compressor heaven).

​Anyway, as a mind-boggling coincidence...

We were offered a good deal on a used compressor last Friday and we agreed to pick it up this morning ...and that was before our current compressor died. How amazing was that timing!

​Here's the beast:

Never thought I'd be this excited about air! 😀

​This compressor produces a LOT more volume that our previous one AND it's quieter to boot (oh, and it didn't cost near the $10k I thought we were going to have to spend initially). So, yeah, it's been a good day.

And I think that's all I have for you today. Thank you for reading. 🙂

    There is something so cool about your “how it’s made” videos. A certain 𝘫𝘦 𝘯𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘪𝘴 𝘲𝘶𝘰𝘪. It’s a neat little personalized touch that makes the things you create that much more appealing, I guess.

    I watched the video on making the candy can. What is the purpose of the fingerprint pattern inside the two halves? Is it just decorative or does it serve a purpose?

    I keep trying to buy one but I miss out. I’ll keep trying. Congrats on this project.
