I spent half an hour at Ted James‘ Truman Brewery based workshop yesterday afternoon.

All the machines he uses are from the early to mid 1900’s and watching him at work is like spending time at the helm of a steam train. At any second you expect a huge plume of smoke and a great big TOOOOOOOOOOT before a recognisable part pops out before your very eyes.

In these photos you can see him setting up the tooling to produce some small parts for a top secret bike to be unveiled at Bespoked Bristol in a week or so.

To see the complete set of 15 photographs head over to the Facebook album.
