    Thank you, Jamie! That means a lot to us.

    We hope you enjoy all of our future videos. We're almost done with our band saw jig. This jig will enable us to cut all of the angles on the side plates much more easily. After this jig is finished, you'll start to see some very cool stuff!

    Hey guys,

    We just completed a new video that shows how we built our latest jig. This is a jig for the Band Saw, and this will allow us to cut the angles for multiple side plates at a time. This is important because it will save us countless hours of work when it comes time for production. Enjoy!

    Hey guys,

    In the last video, we showed you how we built our band saw jig, but we didn't get a chance to show you how it works. In this video, we show you the jig in action. We're also taking this video, and the rest of our videos, in a different direction. We're going to be shooting live from now on. We feel it gives the public a better understanding of what goes on in our shop. It will ultimately be a much better experience. The editing and voice overs were OK, but they were taking an awful long time to produce, and we just feel that this will give you a better experience overall. We hope you enjoy it and we'd love to hear what you think!



    Cheers!

    Hey guys,

    We've been working on some things behind the scenes and wanted to give you a sneak preview of what we've built so far. This video concentrates on the making of the pedal arms, but there's a little something extra in there for you to enjoy. We hope you like it!

    If you're going to be cleaning up the ends of those arms anyway you could use an abrasive wheel to cut the aluminum as well. Of course it should be rated for non ferrous/aluminum.

    Yes, we've found a cutting wheel that should be able to do the job. The wheel we used in the video was completely wrong and should never have been used. Our mistake.

    Hey guys,

    This is the 5th part of our pedal build series. In this video, we're focusing on the radius that we need to put on the end of the pedal arms. This is to allow the arm to move in it's full range of motion. We had some difficulty with this setup, so we will be revisiting this in the future.

    Hey guys,

    In this video, we show you how we built the pedal faces (the part your foot presses against). We're excited to show you this because it's been in the works for quite awhile. The shape of these pedal faces aren't curved in the traditional sense. We decided to be a little different and use different angles to create the curvature. We hope you like the design!

    I would be concerned about increased shoe wear with this design.

    That's a good point and definitely something to consider.

    Just as a reference, though, here's an image we put together showing the angles from the side. The grey area represents the pedal face, and the red line is connected to each edge on the face. Let us know what you think.
