This week on Maker Skills our guest is the one and only Tim Sway. Okay, okay, there may be other Tim Sways but Tom and Tanda did the research and if anything else popped up when they googled Tim Sway they were probably distracted and off down a rabbit hole. Enjoy the show!
Reproductionizing: The act of making reproductions. Yeah, we kind of make our own definitions a lot on this podcast. This week we're talking about making reproductions and the skills and tools that go along with reproductionification and reproductionizing. So if you're looking to reproduce... umm well, by the way, we are now in season 2 of Maker Skills! That means the "after the credits" segment will be available on Patreon and we would love your input on what we have to say over there.
This week JD (you may know him as apexish on Instagram) joins the Makerskills bunch to talk fabrication and many of the related skills that go into building big things out of metal. PJ gets great deals on another boat load of tools... where is he putting all of this! Oh, yeah he has a interdimensional storage system. Tom stops wrangling kids and joins in this week and Tanda.. well yeah she's there too.
This week our guest is the wonderfully talented tool maker and machinist Tony Rouleau. I'm not sure we need to say more! PJ, Tony and Tanda had a great chat. Tom didn't do his research so heended up in the principal's office and had to sit out this show, or maybe he had to tend to a kiddo that wasn't feeling well. We're still not clear on all of the details.
This week we celebrate episode 50 by talking about Product Developizing. PJ got some great deals, or at least some parts to make some deals, or maybe just some stuff to sell as scrap... we're not really sure but he was happy as always. He didn't even kick Tom and Tanda off the show even when they were entirely researchless and fun factless. Tom is on a tear with product design and Tanda made something once that a few people bought.
You Guest it! We had the wonderful and talent Dre of Crafts With Dre on the podcast this week. We talked resin pours, listeners sent in their amazing deals, special order codes for BRUNT Workwear were given. Tom was distracted and a good time was had by all.
Tom has taken on the challenge of creating 100 things in the next 2 years. So basically that's a product each week for 2 years. We thought this was an interesting exercise and, for at least one of the maker skills crew, it brought to mind the word ideation and we ran with it. PJ managed to break a bit of a dry spell by rounding up some deals including lumber at prices that will make you tear up and enough bubble wrap to entertain a youngster well into college. Tom tried to get rid of a table but another one found him and followed him home.
