It can be hard to imagine how things are made, so we'd like to start sharing scenes from behind the scenes.

Sometimes a preview, sometimes not. Here's a little something we are working on for Insider 46:

Oveready / TorchLAB - Production Videos

Really nice to see how much work is behind a finished product!

What this part is? It doesn't look like its on your website yet.

This is an all new part, coming soon. When ready, it will get an insider, web page, and thread.

I could watch a CNC machine work all day, it's very hypnotic. Also pretty wild to think that in 1m20s that machine creates a part (to spec) that would take a person much longer on a manual lathe.

It is cool to watch and see some of the masterpieces that it can create.

That was awesome. Amazing how the brass would spin, then the other side would spin. Technology rocks.

By far my favorite C/P/Z series tailcaps. :) Have you ever considered an E-series version?

The new technique does allow for new versions and materials.

What specific features and metal would you prefer?

HA Nat to match my stable of E2's would be awesome. I'm thinking with a McClicky, you'd sell a pile of them. I wasn't expecting the possibility, gotta think about it more. :twothumbs

Slightly off topic, but I just ordered a bored HA Grey 6P body. Have an extra C2 head and tailcap, now I will have a complete HA Nat 6p. :) Thanks!

+10 on ha for e series.

I dont get why more custom guys are not doing e stuff. Every single time someone comes out with something for the e series they sell out. Drop ins, whole heads, Bezels, tail stand caps, everything. no one can keep them in stock. I wish one of the best custom guys in the game (you guys!!) would do some more E stuff...
