Old Stock Sale and Behind The Scenes

The first thing I'd like to talk about in this blog post is a range of sliders I have available.

These are old stock (not seconds or anything like that). They're just things that have been sort of lying in the back drawer here and there ...one of this one ...two of that one ...that kind of thing.

I've got a little bit of time just with running the machines right now and so I'm able to sort of dig through these and finally take the time to put them up on the website.

Some Things You May Not Know...

Here are a few things you may (or may not) find interesting about how your fidgets are made...

CNC Machines are the core of the business and what makes all the sliders possible.

We start with blanks (like the one on the left) ...and end up with a part such as the ToadX (on the right):
Here's a computer simulation of some of the CNC machining process (you can see on the left-hand side of the video the list of "toolpaths" the machine must run to create this part ...there are 21 in total for this part):
If you've been following me for a while, then you might have noticed the surface finish on our parts has been VERY consistent for the last 8 or 10 months. This is because I designed and built a robotic finishing system.

We used to do a lot of hand-finishing and use "Centrifugal Barrel Tumbler" to provide our finish ...but there were always a lot of parts that had to be re-finished again because of inconsistencies. The robots have removed pretty much all of that.
This last video shows part of the process of the Titanium KingCrab Slider getting it's "Stonewashed" finish:

  • Hello.
    I have been a fan of yours for the past 5 years.
    I have lost my husband’s Tweezer (version 1). I can’t forgive myself and I am very sorry.

    Could you please sell it to me?
    I know it is impossible, but I would really appreciate it if you could help me.

    Thank you so much for everything.. TT
