Situated in Mortdale about 14 km South of Sydney CBD in Australia. Currently I am a one man engineering team that loves to make stuff. Lucky for me, there is some demand for my passion.
My day job is a Prototype Engineer where I build custom prototype machines for clients with great ideas for products but have not much experience in building them into usable item. To do this I accumulated my own CNC machines (mill and lathe), Laser cutter, Vinyl cutter, Heat press, 3D printer etc etc..
My weekend hobby of knife making made me realize that there are a need for locally made custom marking equipment for knifemakers, and thus with my engineering background I started to provide to this demand.
Queries from clients broaden my product range to cover Etching stencils, Jewelers stamps and Branding Irons.
I have been supplying marking products to Australian and overseas customers since 2011.
I started out making leather stamps for Australian Blades Forum members in 2011, expanding quickly to cover Steel stamps (touchmarks) due to the demands.
In 2013 request to make jewelers stamps compelled me to re-build my CNC machine to cope with demand of higher precision movement to able to machine tiny stamps.
Currently I am starting to build of my own design a new solid (100+ kg ) DESKTOP !! CNC machine out of solid metal to attain even higher precision.
