Do you have a parallel version of you? Maybe it's time to give them a shout and review the first half of the year with them, you may be surprised. 

John and John have more than just their names in common; they also are in about the same place business wise, and have about the same number of employees. Now all Grimsmo needs is that new shop!

Saunders and Grimsmo discuss the balancing act that is being both a technician and a manager. It comes down to hierarchies, and making employees feel respected and listened to.

Coming soon to a podcast near you: Torque Wrenches, the continuing battle!

Saunders struggles with his Haas and tries to make 5 axis machining simple

“The beauty of 5-axis is that you should have the ability to just do that” - Grimsmo

Locking down the lock bar insert!

We all know Grimsmo strives to make his knives perfect, and now it’s time to improve the reliability of the process. So far everything is going swimmingly, the insert just needs to pass the “spine whacking” test. Which is exactly what it sounds like.  

Lathes, lathes, lathes!!! ...Saunders? Are you still there?

The smallest part that Grimsmo has ever made is going to come out of his lathe, and be put into the lock bar insert.

FOMO does not apply to Grimsmo...he wants things to happen without him! AND THEY ARE! The team tried out the new Arbor press the other day, video to come out soon on Grimsmo’s channel.

Saunders dream job? High level R&D! Dream vacation? Coming to see the Grimsmo shop! And dreams are coming true next week for both Saunders and Grimsmo, as he'll come by the shop and hang out with the whole crew. Keep an eye out for that video! Who knows what’s going to happen when the two John’s are in the same room!
