Working w/ Mother of Pearl Inlays

Welcome back to another Shop Life! It seems we can’t make these things fast enough, as there’s always so much stuff happening around the shop. Even though we’re somewhere around knife #1120, we’re also still working on knife #1000. We can’t wait to show it off at Blade Show 2018 in June!

Also in this episode, Erik’s tumbler stops working, more 3D printer improvements, a coolant coalescer update, Clara learns how to use slo-mo, and we get new sinks in the workshop!

Enjoy!

Why every shop needs a coolant skimmer

The coolant in our lathe was getting dirtier and dirtier, and we just couldn’t let that happen. We’ve been looking at this coolant skimmer for a while and are so happy that we finally got it! It’s just one way we’re making sure that we’re taking the best possible care of our machines so we can keep making “Full-Grimsmo” knives (and pens!)

Are we the Hollywood type?

Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for…the official LA vlog!

When we took this trip about a month and a half ago, we got to meet with some Hollywood producers, eat some awesome food, and visit Jay Pierson’s Lean Machine Shop.

33 Tips in a BLAZING 24 Minutes!

We compiled a bunch of the tricks that we use around the shop into one video! It may a little longer, but it was so worth it to fit 33 tips in 24 minutes. These are just some of the things we do to keep our shop working efficiently, and safely. There’s a ton more tricks up our sleeve, so we’re just going to have to make a part 2! Stay tuned!

What are some tips and tricks from around your shop or workspace? We’d love to hear from you! And we might even mention them in the next video (and give you credit of course).
