Conveyor belt pin making, and some news


I needed about a million pins for a few new pieces, so I had to resort to MacGyver tactics. See the photo on the left: I made a tube that measured the same length as the pins I needed, and soldered it to a piece of sheet. Then you just insert the wire into the tube and cut all your pieces the same length and save a lot of time. The only flaw in the design is that the tube was too thin so the pieces got stuck inside and that messed up my flow a bit, but nothing major. All in all, I was pretty happy with my little invention (although I’m sure there’s a tool that does that in some catalog somewhere).

As for the news: there are some pretty amazing posts coming this week. We will be getting an insider look into some artists’ work and studios, so stay on your toes because they are really good. They will be a part of a new section in this blog, so hopefully I will keep them coming. Can’t wait to publish the first post and see what you all think!  **EDIT: it will happen this afternoon!**
