Repurposing objects has been a common theme as of late. In this recent installment of “Reclaim & Recycle” we have acquired some stainless sheeting and have taken to the water jet machine. This monster of a machine can cut through the densest of metals over 3″ thick with only water and sand! After weeks of layout and design the implementation has been the pinnacle to this process. Whomever thought brewing was just yeast, barley, hops and aqua surely left out the convalescent wheel, dual action & belt sanders, and of course the willful water jet. All said and done we have an exclusive sneak peek of the making of our tap handles.
A wise machinist once said, “Once cut, apply the polish, countersink your holes and screw it!”
