Update June 9, 2020 - Next Batch Of Parts To Arrive Late In August
July 3, 2020 - We Are Currently Shipping First Batch Orders
We are currently shipping the first batch orders for BT30, 5C, ISO20 and Low Profile R8. The grinding process is slower than I expected....however, we have to do it right!
On Tuesday June 30th, we looked at a CNC lathe with Y axis and live tool capabilities. If we can get the price where we want it, we'll have a excellent machine to bring more work in-house.
June 9, 2020 Upcoming Products
We're bringing production back in house starting late this year! Right now, we are in the process of acquiring new large commercial milling and turning machines for production. This is the best way for us to ensure control over all aspects manufacturing. Plus, this will lead to a wider variety of crazy good products!
At this moment, our first priority is completing all current orders. After that, here are some of the products we will be working on:
- Grizzly G0704/PM25 BT30 and CAT 40 headstock
- Grizzly G0704/PM25 AC Servo Spindle Motor Upgrades
- 5th Axis Rotary Headstock Adapter for Taig and Sherline Mills
- Super Rigid Mill Column Braces For Taig Mills
- High Speed Pulley Kit For Most GlockCNC Headstocks
Update June 8, 2020 - Current Orders Shipping Starting June 22nd
Exciting news! We received our carbide shaft CBN grinding points. They were pretty pricey (we had to buy 5 as a minimum order for an unusual custom size). If you're familiar with grinding points, you might notice the very thick 10mm shaft (about 3/8"). Most grinding points have a 1/8" or 1/4" shaft. Because we're using one of our ER32 headstocks with an adjustable ER nut as the grinder, we can use a much thicker shaft. This means far less deflection and superior finish.
Anyway, we will be spending this week getting the grinding setup down pat. This means testing the grinder on some old headstocks we have setting around. I'm sure there are a few things that will need adjusting or changing the setup and probably mess a few things up in the process. I don't mind making mistakes on old headstocks. Baring anything crazy happening in the world, I'm thinking we can start grinding customer headstocks next week.
I hope everybody is still being very careful about protecting their health. It's nice to see so many businesses opening up and people getting back to work. I don't know about your area, but traffic here has picked up to it's normal pace before this all happened.
