12 years at Rejent. Now moving.

Well, I’ve been here at Rejent on and off for the last 12 years. Now the company is moving to different digs and I figured I’d take some arguably unflattering pictures of the shop. Things are in disarray and thigs are a bit dirty as well.

Right now these things seem mundane but in 20 or 40 years there will be somebody, perhaps even myself who will enjoy looking at photos like these. Our new place will be in the old Precimax building and while it doesn’t have that much more room, it will be a fresh start and we can organize things with a pinch of pride.

Here’s to a good move!

New Linear Gages are ready to go.

We’ve had these things in waiting for quite some time. I’ve designed them to be lighter, more accurate, less snaggy and a bit sleeker. They take the standard heads that I’ve made for the last 4 years and still move linearly so that you can put whatever kind of styli you want on them. The older ones used to snag due to the fact that there were two bearing being forced to cock over in certain circumstances.

As things heat up in the world and the economy either booms or busts, hopefully we’ll be able sell some!

Rejent in 2021

Well, here we are, 2021 is here. Let’s show the shop as it stands in 2021. This is of course only the machining side but in another 10 years the pic will be of interest to people who like this kind of stuff. Also, been here for over 10 years now. wow.

The Gages are complete and ready to ship

After a bit of work and worry, the gages are ready for shipment and are as nice as I could hope for.

I’m quite proud of these, they’re repeatable and feel damned good in the hands.

Some new DNMG boring heads I designed

Well, the new boring heads I designed came out well, especially after nitriding. Man! is that black finish ever nice! I’ve made many heads before but these turned out nicer than usual.

Well, things are getting busy, I’m sure there will be more to post soon, especially as our gages get done!

The new gage!

Well, the prototype gage is here and it seems to work reasonably well. I’ve given it extra travel over the old ones and it seems to have really nice, smooth action.

Here are some pics

Now to make some styluses and start shipping these things around the world!

Three years at Rejent!

Well, It’s been three years at Rejent (plus a week). Since I haven’t updated in a while I figured I’d go through some of my Solidworks files and post a few of the things I’ve worked on during my time here. After looking through the files I am quite amazed at how freakin’ many parts I’ve worked on over the time I’ve been here. Hundreds of different things!

Anyways, here are some pics of a few things I’ve worked on during my time here, albeit a very limited selection of them.

That was just a few of them that I randomly found, nothing too crazy since some of I couldn’t really show. Well, let’s see what the next few years brings.

A look at Rejent Tool in 2013

Well things are proceeding apace in the shop these days. Over the last two years we’ve been pushing ahead and growing the shop in terms of equipment and technology.

I have a couple of photo’s, taken from the same spot over a difference of a little over 2 years.

A look at Rejent in February 2013

A look at Rejent in February 2013. A Bit messy since the machine on the right has just been moved in.

You can see that the shop is much fuller and has much different machines in it. We’ll see what the next couple of years brings, perhaps a new shop?!?
