Coolant Proof Camera Case

We got a new camera case! But it’s not just any camera case, this one is literally made for machinists! The case is called the CRACE, and it’s made by a buddy of ours in the industry. We are SO excited to get clearer shots of the machining from inside the machine, stay tuned.

Machining a Non-Machinable w/ Clara!

My daughter, Clara, came into the shop for the day and we got a mysterious letter in the mail that said it was “non-machinable”. Obviously we had to disagree.

How to 3D print a small part

A small part on our Zoom F1 recorder broke! But we can fix it, Grimsmo style! In other words, with a 3D printer. In this video John gives a tutorial on what programs to use to draw up a design for the 3D printer, and how to use them (along with a measuring tool), in order to print a solution to your problems.

Enjoy!

Making Zirconium Screws!

What’s the main difference between making screws out of zirconium versus making them out of titanium? Zirconium is MUCH scarier. And we haven’t worked with it since…it does look super cool on fire though.

Enjoy!

Grimsmo & Saunders

Saunders from NYC CNC and The Business of Machining podcast came to visit his GrimsBRO a couple weeks ago, and it could not have been more awesome (unless he stayed longer). They visited a couple workshops, and CAMplete was one of them. CAMplete is “a universal post processing and verification platform dedicated to specific machine tools”, meaning they leverage the best of every CAM system.

Enjoy the tour!

Thank you to CAMplete for an AWESOME shop tour! https://camplete.com/

IMTS 2016 (Just in time for the next one!)

Kudos to all of you for waiting 2 years for the video chronicling John’s first trip to IMTS! Grimsmo’s trip to Chicago was sponsored by Elliott Matsuura and Auto Desk, and all he had to do was interview as many people as he could. A lot of these happen to be first timers…just like him! It was an inspiring trip for John, and so much has changed for Grimsmo Knives since going to IMTS 2016. Subscribe to get notified when IMTS 2018 comes out!

Enjoy!
