Weird Titanium Belt Buckle
I’ve got a couple of things for you today…
Firstly, thank you to everyone who commented on my last post. I showed you two different titanium tweezers designs and asked which one you preferred me to launch first.
Twice as many people wanted the “slide-out” version compared to the simpler, more minimalist version.
But here’s the thing…
I’m always up-front and honest with you. And, in line with that, I think I need to launch the simpler titanium tweezers first on Kickstarter. The reason for this is that the titanium pens and titanium pencils from my last Kickstarter project are becoming ready for the finishing process.
The finishing process in very involved and I want to ensure I’m not over-loaded. The “slide-out” tweezers take a LOT of work to produce …and so, when I think about it, I think I need to do them when I’m not already in the middle of fulfilling 1000+ titanium pens and pencils.
Right, onto more fun stuff…
I thought you might like to see a prototype titanium belt buckle I made a couple of years ago:
I had the main parts water-jet cut …and then finished the rest of it by hand (including the mirror-like finish on some of the “layers”).
Truthfully, this belt buckle is a little on the large side. But, honestly, it works so well it’s crazy.
There are no holes in the belt. It works with just friction alone. And, because of this, it’s infinitely adjustable with no “slip” whatsoever once it’s tight. I used it for many months after I had made it.
And here’s the funny thing…
I made this before I had access to any sort of CNC machining and that’s why I had to make it in 14 separate “layers” like this:
A rough prototype for sure – but you get the idea, right?
Okay, I’m done.
Oh, before I go, here’s a sneaky look at what’s happening at Cogent right now… (fulfilling Rewards for my last Kickstarter project)
Oh, wait, one very last thing… (because I keep getting emails about them)
I’ve finally re-done the Titanium PillPots order page so you can order whatever combination of PillPots you like (before I did this you were limited to how you could order them).
Not only that but I’m now also offer the *NEW* “Bottomless” Extensions.
They look like this:
And you can add as many together as you like to hold whatever you need to hold:
