Do you want to visit Boone, NC and take a two week workshop on CNC machining, and are you interested in learning how to integrate digital fabrication techniques into your existing work? This summer I’ll be offering some short four day workshops at night that cover 3D modeling, vinyl cutting, laser cutting/etching, and 3D printing. Learn how to integrate digital craft techniques into your work and how to maintain the associated equipment. The two week workshop will cover the integration of CNC machining for mold making, lost wax casting, and physical machined metal parts that can be integrated into your work. I’ll cover CNC engraving, 2.5 axis operations as well as 3D milling operations. Come spend two weeks in Boone and explore on the weekend, learn some new skills, and have fun making objects in my personal studio. Boone and the surrounding areas provide the opportunity to hike, bike, fly fish and take in everything that a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains has to offer. Rent a cabin and enjoy a gorgeous stay in a beautiful part of the East Coast. My studio is approximately an hour from Penland so we can take in a few visiting artist public lectures during the summer sessions and check out everything the wonderful Craft community has to offer in this region. Details on course times, materials, and fees will be published this week, but please contact me if you’re interested in reserving a spot or if you just have questions. #digitalcraft#craft#metalsmithing#instamachinist#machining#tormach # #taig#pizzacutter

Throwback to some production fixtures I whipped up in 2013 for some unattended cycle time. Building this was one of the best moves I could have made, giving me some time to breathe and run prototypes during the days while these ran thru the evening.
After the home on the Motown block I set up stock sbc block with the @bhjperformance lifter true fixture stepping up to .875 or Ford size lifters. This block is to replace one the customer left water in and it froze and cracked the sides out.
Had a productive Friday started out by honing this @pbmersonworld motown small block from 4.147" out to 4.150 the cylinders had a good amount of taper to them so I was using the swell on the hone to remove the tight spot at the bottom of the bore.
