My very first home computer, presented here in beautiful full colour (something the machine itself was incapable of). A lovely piece of art, thank you.

Absolutely fantastic piece of art based on the Speccy's circuit board. Wonderfully presented, beautifully executed. Many thanks!

Love it! The ring was exactly as requested, and fit as specified. Shipping was quite fast to the US once it was sent out.

About

Revealing the beauty in engineering and manufacturing.

I trained as an industrial designer but chose not to move into the formal design world, instead plotting a fruitful journey around the software development landscape. I always worked on design projects through: pieces of furniture and electronic circuits, as well as software.

At some point at the end of the 00's, there was a watershed moment when a couple of small companies opened up, that brought the power of modern industrial prototyping magic to an affordable, and accessible level. People like Shapeways and Ponoko opened so many doors - This was great! I rattled off a couple of projects and had parts for them them laser cut, or 3d printed.

What was initially curiosity turned into a very small enterprise. One person, still just me, but in conjunction with manufacturing partners, able to produce quality products, from a small flat! Now we're talking!

I got a little studio nearby to support my work on the Polargraph drawing machine, and continued with a series of jewellery designs that sold well here on Etsy.

The latest project is Circuit Portraits: A series of hand-pulled screen prints of famous circuit boards.

Shop policies

I am the designer and the copyright holder of everything in this shop. All of it is finished and packaged by hand by me only, one at a time, and I like it all an awful lot, and I'm very full of my own excitement. However, I appreciate that not everybody is as buoyed by my enthusiasm, and if you buy something from me and you don't like it, I'm happy for you to send it back and I'll give you your money back.

Seriously, maybe one day I'll be in this for the mega bucks, but until then, I'm just trying to make neat stuff, for neat people. Hopefully you're one of them.

Shipping
Electronic documents (robot plans etc) will be delivered by email no more than 48 hours after the sale. Physical items will be posted to their destination within couple of the sale if I have stock. Actual delivery times will depend on the item, but can always be hurried if necessary (at cost).

I use first class Royal Mail within the UK and airmail small package for everywhere else. This is normally reckoned to take 3 to 5 days for Europe and 5 to 10 days for further afield.

If an item needs to be made to order there will be a lead time before I can ship it to you. This will depend on lots of things (my suppliers mostly). The individual listings will say whether the delivery will be taken directly from stock, or what the lead time will be otherwise. Roughly, 3D printed stuff takes up to three weeks to make and finish.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you get your parcel from me, and you decide after looking at it that you don't really want it, for any reason, then just package it back up and post it back to me and I'll refund the money you paid me when I receive it.

Electronic downloads are exempt from this - I can't offer refunds for plans you've ordered once I've sent them. If you change your mind before you've received the file, then drop me an email and I'll refund you before I send the files out.

Personalised jewellery is also exempt - things with special text or patterns that won't mean anything to anybody else.
Additional policies and FAQs
Every item I make is an individual piece and often made to order, so I can usually customise designs without much problem but I might need a bit extra time. I'm also really interested in developing the things, so don't be afraid to email with suggestions.
