Our book keepers are seriously great and their business model works for us really well.
After ordering the most gorgeous AA maple ply that we have ever seen from The Treehouse in South Burlington we were getting really close to the deadline. So close inf act that we actually spent 3 long sleep deprived days pushing as hard as we could.
Our new page on Roughy is finally up on our website here. We have been designing diligently in order to publish up for a spot on Wevolver. We're really excited about this community and the possibility of giving back to the open hardware movement. Pretty soon we will release this design along with a BOM. You'll finally be able to build your own and if you like, help us refine this design into a real production machine that is accessible to people who don't have 10k or more to spare.
As another year comes to an end we would like to stand back and admire the accomplishments of this past year. As creative types we constantly feel the need to push. Late nights, early mornings, burning metal, wood shavings and glue dried on our hands, ink on paper, fingers punching keys, we utilize all the possible tools at our disposal for one goal- creation.
Walt Seigl is so cool that Bike Exif publishes just about everything that he does. Coupled by some of the best bike photography anyone has seen in a long time. These pictures were taken at our friend Anthony Mission's pad. It just happens to be the most photogenic home in all of Brooklyn.
One of the things I enjoy most is discovering new businesses that are growing inside old New England mill buildings. So when I heard about a guy named Walt Siegl who was building custom motorcycles in Harrisville, New Hampshire, I made a point to stop by.
Here at M//E we believe in getting our blood moving on lunch break, and throwing the frisbee is a great way to just that!
This is a nice rendering showing all of the mitering that we were able to do.
During the process of developing 3d laser cutting profiles we were posed with an interesting challenge. How to predict the laser cut profile of a fish mouth joint, on a tube that would undergo swaging after it was cut. We were able to tweak some features in solidworks in order to predict this kind of geometry to work out perfectly, which in turn eliminated a bunch of grinding and fitting during the manufacturing process. So stoked!
