Fancy R37 Rulers!

Hi Folks,

Hope you're winding up a good week and getting ready for a super weekend ahead! We're still having very mild weather here and despite the drab foliage a few bright leaves have popped out here and there. Very disappointing foliage season though, so hopefully we will have a better one next year...

Well, it's been a very eventful week here. Had some moments of panic after a big equipment breakdown but that is thankfully fixed now. So I can head into the winter months without worry, now that things are up to date and better organized as well. I also managed to get some grinding in and quite a bit of finish work too, so it was an extremely productive week all around....the steel Wrunts are finishing up in the tumbler today and will finally be heading out to heat treat over the weekend. I also got going on the next big batch of ti rulers and will try to get them prepped out for milling next week.

Today I have the next wave of R37 Ti Rulers done. This is a medium sized batch and the bright ano lovers are going to be very pleased I think...I had a lot of fun making these super bright with two tone contrast anodizing. The textured titanium is just shy of 1/4" thick so they are very hefty, and the center holes are reamed for a press fit if you want to install a 3/8 spinner button from Scott McCoskery. The texturing was light and much of it tumbled away but that left very cool mint green colored flecks on these. When contrast anodized to dark colors it makes a sort of Van Gogh Starry Night effect. Very fun stuff and I wish my feeble pics below did a better job capturing just how bright these are.

None of these tools are stamped, but I do plan to stamp the next wave of regular 5/32 thickness titanium R37s that I am just starting to work on now.

I do have some lefties today though... and, for those folks who just can't stand color, I did save out a dozen plain rulers. So if you want a plain one of these super thick R37s just give me a holler (via email please, not in the comments here, as I do not always know who all the folks are who leave messages) and I will do my best to hook you up. ;) lottagear2000-pp@yahoo dot com

The fancy ti R37s will run $85 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for stopping by everyone, and have a fabulous weekend ahead!

This might be cool in copper or bronze. What do you think?

Peter Atwood said...

It would be nice in bronze perhaps, but the bottle opener will not hold up.
