Two Dozen Ti Rulers

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! Wherever you might be I hope you're going to get some gorgeous weather and some much needed rest and relaxation. :)

OK, I have two dozen of the plain blasted ti rulers available and then that's about it for the batch. Although I had much better results than the last batch of rulers I still had a slightly higher loss rate than I had hoped for. I think I have all the kinks figured out now though. Next time I do these I'll shoot for a bigger batch and I will make some anodized ones as well.

Sold Out! **I made it to the PO this afternoon so they are already on the way. **

Can we expect any pry babies in the near future?

Woohoo, scored me one

These went quick! I almost snagged one, but since I got one of the first batch, I held off. If any ano's show up, though, I hope I'm around!

Peter Atwood said...

Dang, those went in less than five minutes! Thanks folks.

Little A, yes, I do have some started but I need to get a couple of days to do the grinding and milling work on them before they can go through the finishing stages. So it's going to take a few more weeks. Figure mid June or so.

Whew, I finally got one!

Whoa! Less than five minutes, that is nuts!

Peter, are the Prybabies going to be XL or flat?

Hi Peter I see I missed out again
:(

I hope to get an Atwood ruler someday we shall see.....

Great job as always

Peter Atwood said...

The G3 Prybabies will be flat. It is possible that I could change them up a bit, eliminate the thumbgrooves and the offset at the bottle opener area. I could do a bend then but the tradeoff is that they won't look as cool. The problem is that when there are those little features that break up the lines I get some tiny stress cracks showing up in the corners which has caused some loss of the batch in the past. This is the main reason why I gave up on the XL stuff.

So the rules no longer have metric?

They look great. Hopefully I'll get in on one of these upcoming prybabies!

Oh Sweetness!
Stonewashed Ti Ruler was in my mailbox today. This little piece is neat! Off to a good start for the weekend :)
You will not be dissapointed when your arrives...

Peter Atwood said...

Oh, that was an old picture of the first sample piece... my mistake! Yes, they do have metric.

Peter - sorry for the late reply but my RSS tools let me down again! If you happen to find a Ti Ruler lost in the shuffle of the shop please let me know.

Thanks again for your great productions.

If you ever make another with metric and inches - I want one really bad. Maybe make it THICK with tons of cut-outs that double as wrenches, both metric and standard - you know what I'm saying.
