Blast from the past. I took the second photo in a moment of nostalgia to the old workshop. The original backyard shed (famously without toilet facilities) 😳 is where I started and grew the business of Vesper Tools since Sept 2003 when I went full time. I did a lot in that place as I grew from literally nothing to the success it is today. I remember vividly being down to my last $5 some time soon after quitting my last paid employment. I cut my teeth within those walls as I learnt product design, development and production and industrial processes and much much more about life too. I taught myself things in there every day on my route to becoming a true professional. At 140m/sq compared to 500sq/m+ in the new place means I truly ran out of room in the old place many years ago. I was back there just before Xmas stripping out the last bits n pieces since I moved. I've even taken most of the 3 phase wiring to the new place. The decorative walls are empty and lots of heavy iron sold. Once near full cable tray is empty. The crane beams are down and gone. Signage is gone. It's now an empty shell of a building I constructed myself from the ground up in 2001. Good memories. Many great visitors there over the years. You know who you are. I've been producing tools in the new cavernously large workshop for 15 months now. It feels like a quick flash yet it's been an age. This is just the beginning of many more years for Vesper Tools and my amazing quality woodworking hand tools. All hand made right here. #atelier#woodshop#workshop#handmade#quality#instamachinist#manualmachinist#thisishowimaketools#precision#jakobsen#surfacegrinder#millingmachine#kondia#screwpress#flypress

Customer wanted this part made with holes .375 off because they think the super precision machine it goes on was off that much. I'm thinking something else is wrong but what do I know? #machinist#cnc#kondia#ezcam#wantedityesterday
