Local Tool Show at EM Precise

We’re always improving, but we’re also always learning. This local tool show was a great way for us to take the afternoon and ask some great tool vendors some of the questions we have about their products. We had a blast! And got some free cake while we were at it.

Enjoy!

How to Make a Hero Sword w/ Kenny Palkow!

Ever wonder how Hollywood props are made? Or how much detail goes into them? If you’re working with the Prop Fabricator Kenny Palkow, it’s a lot. He’s designed and manufactured props for everything from “Altered Carbon” to “Deadpool”, and he was nice enough to let us into his shop to see how he gets his work done!

With us being all about our Full-Grimsmo mindset, Palkow was definitely someone we could respect and relate to.

Enjoy!

Adding a Lock Bar Insert Pt. 2

I hope you liked the carbidizing video, because that’s the last time you’re ever going to see us do it! …probably. Adding this lock bar insert will make carbidizing redundant for us, and will also make our knife making process more consistent. Here’s how we’re going to do it! Stay tuned for the rest of the project.

Enjoy!

Lapping Shiny Parts Pt. 2

As we continue our journey with the new lapping machine, John nerds out with Todd from Engis about how to use it, and why diamond conditioning rings are better. Then Erik talks about how much he loves the new machine, and what he didn’t expect about it.

Enjoy!

How to Add a Lock Bar Insert Pt. 1

Wondering what that teaser was in our last Saga Saturday video? The secret’s out! It was a lock bar insert. This little guy will make our knife making process more consistent, and make carbidizing redundant for us.

Enjoy!

Shiny parts, Level Grimsmo Pt. 1

We weren’t satisfied with how our parts were coming back to us after being lapped, so we went full Grimsmo and bought a lapping machine. Engis told us there would be a wait time to get the machine we ordered (because it’s custom, obviously), so they sent us a temporary lapping machine to hold us over until then. Thanks Engis! You know how to treat your customers.

3D Machining a Pen

One (or two) more weeks before we get back into pen production! For now, let’s break down the slider mechanism on fusion, and talk a little bit about 3D machining. Also my son came to help out around the shop for the day!
