shop pixels


It occurred to me we haven’t put up any shots of the new shop since we’ve cozied up in there. We had some pics on Mary’s camera… check ’em out.



  1. yer bridgeport is crooked. hi dave!

  2. uh oh. How did that happen?
    hey, that utube video… um?

  3. Great pics! Love the color of the frames hanging from the wall.

  4. That is one calm shop pooch ya got there! I don’t think he moved posistion in any of those pics! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like a great place to put down some good lyrics for your future “songs”! Heh heh heh! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sorry, I couldn’t restrain myself from that one.

  5. GT- I’m always a sucker for hokey puns!

    That’s Dave, the dog. He just turned 10 (we share birthdays) but still plenty frisky for a bike ride now & then. He can grab a frisbee out of the air like nobody’s business!

  6. Cool looking shop amigo. Impressive work you have done thus far. I like the windex bottle with cutting oil…can you buy that at the supermarket? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Lookin’ good! – Dave that is!

  8. Matt, you have no idea how much I’ve obsessed about those Windex bottles.

    Twice in the last week I’ve been in hardware stores & held bona-fine spray bottles in my hand. Even compared different models; they range from $2.99 to $4.99 for top shelf. …Then I put them down.

    There’s something in midwestern DNA that keeps me from buying the new bottles– I don’t REALLY need it… the old windex bottles work fine. Somehow I’d feel guilty if I bought them.

    Incidentally, this same DNA also has a certain anal-retentive gene that sets off alarm bells about only one bottle being properly labeled…

    Pretty weird, eh?
    Something tells me we’ll have new bottles soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I am still mighty jealous of the new bridgeport. Those headtubes look fantastic. The custom jiggage is sweet too.

  10. Your blog is starting to feel like an engaging reality show about a small business owner. Keep it up…it’s a good thing.

  11. Jruss, the Bridgeport really is a thing of beauty,instant MVP in my book. The head tubes are CNC’d, with approximately a 15″ radius in there for the hourglass shape. My hope is to get my hands on a toolbar for the lathe, which allows you to put a cutting tool on a long radius- that will be nice. The one in the picture is Lynda Wallenfels’ tube, which I turned & bored down to 3.5″ for a lower position…

    Matt- not sure I appreciate the comparo to a reality show ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I see what you’re getting at. Thanks!

  12. Hahaha. I just mean it’s cool to watch behind the scenes of cool upstart company. It’s all compliment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. hey, brendan steve from coconino cycles here. nice shop! mine is all dark and cold and busy right now. keep throwin’ chips! thanks for the hollidaze card, too! ciao for naio, steve.

  14. I love the shop! Dave, the shop dog, makes it complete. Sharpie markers are great for bottle labeling. Then you can stick with the recycled bottles. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Ok…..pull out the spray nozzle from the windex bottle. Pour the cutting oil in the Hemp Beer bottle. Cut down siphon tube on windex sprayer, and then put in Hemp Beer Bottle. Contraption must include duct tape – but just enough as to not obscure the beer label.

    Problem solved.

  16. Hey Steve, good seeing you around these parts. Dark, cold, and busy pretty much sums up my shop too these days. Good though!

    I think Dave dog is having fun in there, though he occasionally gets roosted by flying shavings. Jeff from Intense used to tell me about his dog, who would sometimes eat, digest, and pass aluminum shavings. Ouch!

    We might have to come up with a new bottle idea. Good side project.

  17. Where dreams come true…

  18. good lookin jig! me likey, got some material and am going to start laying out a new improved jig.
    Could you send me some other pics? and I’ll have some more questions for you! Thanks man,
