A Few Pictures From the D|Focus "Factory"

I took a few minutes out of the busy day today to snap some pictures of what we are working on. (It was also an excuse to use my new (used) Canon FD 24mm f/1.4L lens with my GH1.)

6 square feet of Delrin and 8 square feet of white acrylic ready to be transformed into D|Focuses.

Two batches of rail mounts cut. We can fit 24 of them on a 12 x 12 inch sheet of material. It takes about 2 hours to cut one sheet. The parts not need to be de-burred and drilled.

Here is the CNC Mill at work. We use a 3/16" end mill turning at 5000 rpm. It takes several passes to cut each part out.

Watching the green characters scroll on the screen reminds me of The Matrix.

NOT D|Focuses

Quit laughing and get back to work Tony!

Waiting on Drive Gears

Knobs get a brass insert glued in with JB Weld, then they are drilled, drilled again and tapped for the set screw.

We use a lot of acetone when building D|Focuses. Its perfect for removing any residual oils and sticky residue.

Got to have some tunes!

Here is one of the very first D|Focuses I sold (number 14 actually) in for an upgrade to the new V2.
