Before I share the itinerary of the 2020 China Field Trip, here are some updates;
Pencil Precision: This project is now in the pre-production phase. What this means is that vendors are being finalized, and prototypes are being built. My work is done. I can’t give you firm dates yet, and will not be able to until after the Chinese New Year. BTW, 2020 is the Year of the Rat.
New Projects: This week I am finishing up a new hand saw design. It is joint cutting back saw that has a maximum depth of cut of 78mm. More on the why of this later.
My Work Retreat: The first two weeks of February I will be redesigning the HP-6v2 body because I no longer like the old design. This is a big deal because the new design will be in metric. Rest assured, ALL existing HP-6 profiles will be backwards compatible. I also have an idea for new product that the industry has never seen, so we will see if the muse takes me there….
Rejected Idea: You will be pleased to note that I rejected my idea to put a dust collector attachment on our scratch awls….
SAVE THE DATES! Continue reading
