"Bic Buddy Rev #1"

Well folks,
I was at the shop the entire day Saturday, and was only able to produce one piece.
I'm not to happy about it, but you'll have those days.
Any way as you can see the new ones now have a screwdriver tip on one side.
I added a nice "ear" for the split ring, and decided to do away with the lock bar feature.
So I think I'll try again tomorrow to get a few more machined up.
Thanks for looking,

"Remember The Proto Bic Buddies?"

Well then,
While you all are BBQing, and relaxing this long weekend I'll be at the shop whipping up a batch.
The production ones will be a bit different so you'll have to check back to see what's new:)
Be safe kids,

"I Don't Do Custom Work, But"

How could I say no when requested to make a custom Titanium engagement ring box?
Honestly, I was honored to be asked.
The machining is all done, other than a slot for a Self Lighting Gas Vial.
After that, it's on to the final polishing.
Enjoy the photos,

"Ti Lights"

It's May already I suppose I should break out the lawn tractor, and other seasonal implements.
Anyway I've run another batch of "Ti Lights" that are all set to go.
These are made from .540 diameter 6AL4V Titanium, and are 1.270 in length. There are four viewing portals featuring five .093 diameter holes with a 45 degree counter sunk slot. These have a nice satin Scotch Brite finish on them. Inside is a 3mm x 23mm Self Lighting Gas Vial. Once again the Vial is captivated by the para cord lanyard.
I think I'll attach one to my John Deere key ring...:)
Here's what's available:
0 Pieces in Plain Satin finish, and a Green vial.
0 Piece in Plain Satin finish, and a Ice Blue vial.
CONUS Price on these is $95.00 each.

As always thanks for looking,
