Saunders is in Connecticut for a Yamazen/Matsuura event. A new technical center was opened; there’s going to be lots of learning to do!

Getting info is great--but info for the sake of info isn’t always a good use of time. You’ve got to know when to get your head out of that Rabbit hole! At the end of the day, you’re making parts, and only need to know so much before getting started.

GRIMSMO PEN PROJECT IS A GO #writeyoursaga
What’s the hardest part about designing a pen? Cutting it on a lathe. Grimsmo works out the final bugs in producing a pen (the Saga), and debates new methods of machining it.

“That should not go on a lathe, but I can do it.” - Grimsmo

Keep an eye out on Grimsmo’s channel for the first “Saga Saturday” video!

Also, is there a replacement for general ER collets? Saunders talks about what he learned from a presentation last week.

Busy doesn’t have to mean stressed, and it doesn’t equal success.

“Make sure you own your business, it doesn’t own you” - Saunders

It's definitely...something! Maybe even a milestone?

Grimsmo can focus without interruption now! It may not seem like a big deal but this is actually a milestone for his business. 

Question of the Day:

How do you market your first product?
