Golden Ratio Calipers : Belated Update

So everything went a bit mad last November, and I’ve been trying to catch up ever since… which is why I’ve only managed to do two blog posts this entire year.


So… I’m not really into the whole employer/employee thing – so have 7 sub-contractors, fellow micro-businesses… two proper industrial-design guys (Glen and Grant) full time, and 5 local artists/musicians doing assembling etc. It’s that type of neighbourhood – everyone’s kindof over-educated, under-employed. The newly precarious middle-class. Everyone is always swapping things for lemons. They’re a way for people to give each other things without having to feel like a charity case. Everyone has lemons, everyone uses them. They’re like this magical gift/swap-economy debt-canceller.

(Looks out window for a bit)

But anyway – I now have proper professional engineers to tell me what to do

Laser CutterI’ve also acquired another laser-cutter… I thought it was going to be a desktop one, but it’s another free-standing thing that take up about 1.5 cubic metres. I made a wheely stand for it. So far it’s caught fire 3 times.

workshop2There was also a flood two days ago, so we had a huge tidy up, and now it looks like this:

Golden Ratio Microblading CalipersAnd it’s all for these: Golden Ratio Microblading Calipers

It’s taken me completely by surprise… a year ago I didn’t even know what microblading was… now there are loads of videos on youtube using my actual calipers. I’ve been trying to get it together to make a proper video for years now – and now about 20 people have beaten me to it.

Anyway… hopefully I’ll be able to keep things a bit more up to date from now on :)

Until tomorrow…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!"

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make.

Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom.…

Golden Ratio Poster

I've been tinkering with movies etc today, and (while I was waiting for things to render) played about with one of the stills and made a poster. I don't know if I'll ever turn it into an actual poster. If anyone is interested though - let me know how big you want it, and I'll do some costings etc. Alternatively,…
