EDC > Safe Queen
During a hiking/shooting trip with a friend, Saunders notices a spectacularly crafted GK SAGA pen sticking out of his friend's shirt pocket. After spending some time outdoors, Saunders realizes he's lost his OWN SAGA...let's just say this pen has a SAGA of its own.

Grimsmo shares how the clips are uniquely and perfectly tensioned.

Internal Threading Problems
Sub-spindle threading cycle = Butt Clench 100
Find out why Saunders uses masking tape on the lathe.
Grimsmo switches to making knife thumb studs on the Tornos instead of the Nak. A very tiny threaded hole causes 5-6 tools worth of headache. He searches for the problem, only to kick himself later.

Grimsmo explains GO, NO-GO
Listen to the one and only Go, No-Go explanation that actually makes sense!

SMW Fixture Plate Tops
Now that all Pierson Workholding Mini Pallets are compatible with SMW Fixture plates, Saunders turns his attention to diamond dowel pins that require tight tolerances. When it comes to QC, keep it simple!

IN THE STUDIO
Fraser has fashioned a sweet sound-proof audio/visual room for GK videos and products!

NEON VESTS
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing---if it's not in use.
