Drumsticks...Currently, one of my projects is resurrecting an old mid 1970's Goodspeed back knife lathe that was near demise. It turns out to be in fairly good working order, requiring mild overhaul maintenance and acquiring the necessary components. This lathe will be used to make drumsticks... lots of them. It is proving to be quite challenging and requiring patience while learning the specs and all the functioning that will make this machine come to life. The manual covers only part of it and the rest I try to figure out... then I call Goodspeed. That is a story in itself. It turns out this machine has history with some very interesting people.
Myself and my new found friend, Jeff Rich, aim to bring quality crafted drumsticks to drummers around the world at an affordable price.
Projected release is January 2014.
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out. I'll be adding more content throughout the coming days, weeks and years... so come back again. I'm going to call it a day and take off my hat. Tomorrow is another beautiful day on the way.
