Having lost our point & shoot camera, you’d think we were working under cloak of darkness… We’ve missed out on some Kodak moments lately!
Phil & I have been tweaking the flex plate & other Song hardware a good bit. The wizardry he performs with Pro Engineer is amazing- things moving on the screen & pretty colors are just the start of it. The parts are getting lighter, swoopy-er, & prettier… be patient, it’s coming.
Mary threw a surprise birthday party last Friday; the big surprise was Matt coming out for it, along with a bunch of Idyllwild friends. It turns out Phil is as much at home mixing up Margaritas as he is analyzing titanium parts.
Matt & I tinkered in the shop. We made a new seat tube fixture that holds the tube for cutting the pinch notch & h20 holes, then rotates for the BB notch… keep with me, there’s no point & shoot… Next, you pull the whole enchilada out of the mill & voila! Now it’s a tacking fixture. The tube is held on center & square to the BB, ready to be tacked. Everything is squared & on center, ready to go. We’ll add shock mounting to this fixture for the Song.
Love for the new machines is deepening-
First it was like “hey Bridgeport, you’ve got some nice ways. We should hook up…”
Now it’s “Bridgeport, you bring out the best in me, you open a new world of possibility.” 😉
Well, sorry we’re thin on images. Take a look here instead. Diane Landry is a Canadian artist showing this weekend in LA, just found the site & like her installations- hopefully we can go down & take a look.
