Another small company we’d like to tell you about is Made.in.Garforth, run by Nick and Annie.
Here’s a sample of their work;
They’ve been supplying us with various practical and novelty parts for the business, practical as in many of the ‘magazines’ you’ll find in more recent machines are from themselves (as the machines we buy in are often unsuitable as-is for current, modern products) and novelty as in some light-up perspex branding. Nick states that “we appear to be keeping Made.In.Garforth a secret as we have no idea how to make people aware of us.” – so we thought we would try and help!
Nick describes the business like this;
Nick adds that in his previous lives, he built big, important machines and critical systems that made real differences in people’s lives – it was during this time he met and later married Annie who until then was working all over the world. Now, he hopes that he has left that responsibility & stress behind and just makes interesting stuff ‘that is of little or no importance’… and loves it!
And we can completely agree with that (apart from the ‘something missed’ bit!) – the attention to detail, and time or money saving suggestions that have been made are invaluable, and although we’ve obviously given the basic designs as a commission it’s the alterations and tweaks made that make the items we’ve received back way above average.
If you have a requirement for any of the above, visit the eBay shop, or website – described by Nick as “barely a work in progress” but showcasing some of their work. They just seem to enjoy making interesting stuff! You can also send them a message to nick @ madeingarforth.com – remembering to remove the ‘anti-spam’ spaces.
