GYC Gloves – Product of the month

A few months ago we got a shipment of GYC gloves at work, I was very impressed with the quality and another benefit is the grip texture actually works with tough screens (DMG Siemens 840 D) and smart phones.

They have a good longevity best I can tell so far compared to the rubber gripped HFT gloves.

I ended up getting a set from Amazon

They have multiple size and color options

Beyond the machine shop work, at work I’ve also used them for Gardening work & moving.

Double Ender Bush Plane – Aircraft of the month


The Double Ender bush plane looks like something I would have doodled up in a sketch book as a teenager.

Alec Wild brought this vision of a ground breaking aircraft into reality.
