Today, the Johns are 1000 miles away--literally! Well, 15130 km or 9400 miles to be more exact.

Saunders Soup for the Soul
While in Sydney, Austrailia for the Next Generation Manufacturing event with Autodesk, he allows himself to detach, de-stress, and be in the moment. Woosah, for sure!

The GK team is on track to smash their best-month-ever record yet again! Spending a day cutting foam means enough for the month but still leaves something to be desired.

FOG 'N' BOG
Grimsmo installs 2 mist collectors BUT how will he choose to operate it?  Light Switch or Arduino + Powertail, that is the question. Stay tuned for the installation video!

Over the ocean and through parking lots to Nicholas Hacko, we go.

Meet Angelo in the GK NEW People and LEAN Improvements Video!

Check out this ENORMOUS space in the New Possible GK Home Video!

Grimsmo gears up to sort through it while Saunders plays with CERA BLOCKS.

There's another machine up for consideration at GK--find out what it is!
