A bit of good news...actually two! (Timascus Project)
Firstly, over the weekend a photo of Timascus NH2 J14 received over 500 likes on our Instagram page (as of 11th May 2020). This is a huge compliment, especially so because the majority of our Instagram followers are machinists, watchmakers, and makers in general - those who make things with their hands. The Timascus project is generating interest for a number of reasons, but clearly the irresistible colours of the three-component alloy have real pulling power.
The second bit of good news: after a rather long wait we received our delivery of a diamond flycutter - a special, one-off tool made for our Kern mill. After installation, we recorded a video of the laser calibration of the tool and sent it to the German manufacturers. To our surprise, they posted our video to their Instagram page - a massive tick of approval.
