It's Twins

It's here!! It took 3 days to clear the workshop to make space, 5 weeks on a boat from the US, and 4 months from ordering to delivery. But now we have a shiny new Haas ST15, sitting in the workshop next to its baby brother the ST10.

It's bigger!!
The '15 has a higher capacity compared to our original ST10, so we can now make it bigger, better and make more of them.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we make 98% of our items here in the UK, as this means we can maintain the quality of our products without compromising on their usability.

Arrival - not sure if the truck was big enough!!

At least it was well packed.

Tried not to upset the neighbours, but we did take over the Car Park - and the road outside.

Removal of the old machine, this was made in 1995 and still worked on most days.

Things are easier with a big forklift.

Not sure if it's going to go through the fire exit!! Getting the '15 into the building with only 7cm clearance in the corridor was a bit fun, wi…

Any plans this week?

Any plans this week?

Today (Tuesday) will see us at the southern engineering show in Farnborough looking at even more new and shiny engineering toys.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) we have to clear out a big chunk of our engineering workshop and dispatch area, to clear some space, while on Thursday our new toy arrives - if you can call our 3rd £60k 3 ton new CNC machine a toy!

We then have to move out a CNC mill (hope its not raining), move out the old old CNC lathe, shift the new one in with only 3cm to spare in the corridors, and then put it all back together before bringing in the electrician to wire in all up. It's a big heavy and expensive jigsaw puzzle.

Friday sees the installation engineer in with a day of resetting the old machines and installing the new machine, which normally involves lots of gentle tapping with hammers to get everything aligned to within .001mm and then we just have to wait until Monday for the commissioning engineer to arrive for the next machine.

We could do what o…

Are we spying on you?

You may or many not be aware that Standard Innovation, the makers of an internet connected vibrator called the We-Vibe have recently settled a massive $3.75 million dollar lawsuit in the US for breach of privacy over data their app controlled vibrator was sending back to them when in use.

Firstly I would point out that Standard Innovation have reportedly settled the case early to avoid the prolonged litigation and ever spiralling costs that defending such a case entails in the US, so whether they are guilty or not is notwithstanding.

Panic panic it's creepy
Now you will read many option pieces on how creepy this all is and 'why would a company want to monitor my orgasms?', but I think the truth is a little more basic. The data was sent back not because there was some pervert in a back room who got off on how many times you played with a vibrator, but simply because the hardware had the capacity to do so, and someone probably though it was 'a good idea'.

No secret bunk…

Website moves and changes

Well it has taken over a week, but both our UK store and our Worldwide web store have now been upgraded and now run under https:// for increased security. We have also moved the worldwide store a little to rather than the older, but if you are still using the old links not to worry as they will redirect automatically.

Mobile Friendly
Both of our stores are now mobile and tablet friendly so it is even easier to order, and we are in the process of reviewing every product and ensuring you have the most up to date images and product data, If there is something you would like us to add about a product, then please drop us a line.

No change to your details
Unlike other websites we have retained all the login details so you will not have to retype all your details when placing an order. We know how annoying it is when you hit a new site and get the message - we have upgraded the store but could not be bothered to migrate your details over -…

New Satin finish electrodes

We have spent time and effort to ensure our range of estim electrodes is just right, but then we still manage to find ways to improve them!!

If you have enjoyed the slightly 'industrial' look of our original brushed finish, then you are going to love the look and feel of our new exclusive luxurious satin finish.

Satin FinishUnlike cheaper electrodes, our new Satin finish is NOT a coating, as coatings can chip flake and rub off, but an engineered surface finish applied directly to the metal parts of the electrode after they have passed though our CNC machining process. 

How do we do it?Once machined each electrode is inspected and then locked into a sealed protective cabinet and hand blasted by a high speed stream of ultra fine glass beads, giving a, consistent, smooth and clean finish which sparkles in the right light. 

The electrode is then cleaned, inspected again, before being assembled, tested, hygiene sealed and packed, ready to be shipped off to its new owner, together wit…
