What’s Knew? We Moved!
Oblivious to Changes
Ever noticed how over time your clothes (all of a sudden) no longer fit right?
After four years, and adding more stuff a bit at a time, we ran out of room. First a CNC milling machine (a ten foot cube weighing 13,000 pounds). Next, the CNC lathe (smaller, but still comfortable). Then, just like at the “all you can eat buffet line” small items here and there, until one day we looked up, and realized that the “relaxed fit” wasn’t working any more.
Then it became a modern day version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears to find a new space. Everything was either way too big, way too small, way too expensive, etc.
Finally, my searching led me to a place that was becoming vacant. A really nice building complex with an award winning bakery, a couple of breweries, and several wineries just across the street. At 2100 sq. feet, a bit bigger than actually needed, but room to grow. 20 foot ceiling, lots of 220 volt 3 phase power. The entire East wall is floor to ceiling glass, so the rising sun floods the area during the day.
During the move, Fine Woodworking released their Jan/Feb issue that featured coping saws and the floodgates burst open (see the story and issue below). Trying to move, find stuff, assemble saws, and ship during a blizzard of orders that exceeded anything we had ever encountered before was exhilarating to say the least.
Here’s our new address:
719 Swift Street
Santa Cruz, CA 95060
Thanks for your patience and forgiveness as we worked through the problems.
