It’s Thanksgiving season, and I thought it would be an appropriate time to reflect on the last couple months here at Handibot. As with most work places, there’s a lot of things that go on behind the scenes out of public view that never get acknowledged.
This year, Handibot moved into a new facility. This building has been a boon for us because it has given us a space to spread out and really make our own. In particular, I am thankful for the support of the ShopBot production staff who gave us a tremendous amount of assistance as we transitioned out of our old space. Quite frankly, we needed all the help we could get! From the physical move, to cutting parts for us while we got our tools up and running, to lending equipment, they went above and beyond. If you ever visit ShopBot headquarters for a tour or training, talk to the guys on the production floor and you’ll immediately realize what a great crew they are.
This might sound a little trite, but I am also very thankful for our customers. We are excited about the potential of Handibot, and it’s awesome to see other people get excited about it with us. It’s really amazing to see the things that the Handibot community is coming up with. Just the other day I was looking at a large material jig someone had designed for himself. Or have you seen Michael Fogleman’s map? That thing is impressive. It’s easy to get lost in the details of the day-to-day grind, but hearing from our customers helps us keep the big picture in mind.
