Trying, but I do not have the cash to do it anymore. The $AUD is like toilet paper.
I am trying something out, that may or may not work and be a new direction. I am making my first buckle on my cnc mill now and will be selling them in a few weeks time.
Once I have mastered 3 or 4 different style of buckles, I am going to make a case in-house.
That is the only way for Aegir Watches to work long term, so now is the time to try it.

I have 6 DLC cases and 7 SS ones, and once they are sold I do not plan to make more until I understand if it will work here or not.
Manufacturing here is costly, so I cant go the route of getting them done locally, but rather I have no choice but to make them myself.
You're an ambitious man. I'm interested in a buckle when available. I hope the cases pan out too. I don't think any small(ish) companies are turning their own cases. What kind of mill did you get?

Its a Wabeco 1410. A smaller German mill for smaller work like prototyping.

I got it from the USA actually and it is certainly up to the job, just not as fast as some.

If I can make a case on this and prove to myself I can, then I will straight away add a Haas V3
That's a hell of an investment! Congrats.
I've been thinking of buying a mill for a couple years. After I move into a more permanent house next yr, I might take the leap.

Damn that is a lot of cash :think:
It cost double when you add tooling, enclosure , shipping
I am sure bro. Let me know if there is anything I can help out with.

I have to say this SW300 has mimicked my the same results as my previous experiences with SW200's. I really like, also the reserve is great on it. If anything I would consider it a upgrade, so it is good move Todd imo.
