Day of Reckoning

***Fun, fun fun!

After 9 months of waiting, our CNC lathe has finally arrived. 

Two massive crates loaded with machinery, tools and raw material are being slowly unpacked. Not without difficulties - moving large and heavy pieces around such a tight place is a true challenge.  The rebelde workshop is now a busy place:  we have a compressor technician, a door installer and a painter working simultaneously, starting at 6am and working until 9pm. We are slowly running out of time - the German engineer is arriving tomorrow night.

Marc is here to setup the lathe, connect the bar feeder, do test runs and then spend another week with Josh and Tyler providing hands-on training. We are all very tired but the knowledge that in just a few days we will be manufacturing our first watch parts, here, in Sydney, keeps the spirit high. 

Happy collecting,
