Remove broken threaded inserts (Lots of solutions!)

Our threaded inserts are stripped out, and stuck in our pallets! Who knew there were so many different solutions to get them out? You could drill them out, mill them out, or even make your own tool. What do you think John chose to do?

Redesigning before the Relaunch

Welcome back to Saga Saturday! Things got a little busy after Blade Show, but we are happy to say we’re back in the pen making game! We will have pens available for purchase on our website soon. In this episode of Saga Saturday we…design the pen we made. We didn’t have any official engineer drawings for the pen before, but John and Angelo took a few hours to sit down, redesign the pen with schematics, and make some changes that will improve the function of the pen, and make it easier to produce.

Stick around for the end of the video when John talks about the main change they decided on

IMTS 2018 DAY 3

John takes advantage of the final day of IMTS to roam around the tooling building and ask questions about inserts, end mills, and things like that. There was lots of knowledge gained, and amazing people met along the way.

Enjoy!

IMTS 2018 DAY 2

This whole video is John jumping from booth to booth learning new things. Get ready to strap in and come along for the ride, you might learn something too. Examples of the booths that he visits include ProShop (the new ERP software at the Grimsmo Shop), air bearings booths, and booths marketing quiet(er) air guns.

IMTS 2018 DAY 1

This is the first of the probably 3 videos on John’s trip to Chicago for IMTS 2018. Day 1 is all about diving deep into Swiss Lathes, learning about new technology, and reconnecting with the machining community. It’s awesome to get back out there, meet new people, and see people you haven’t seen since the last IMTS!
