conquering the weld

Screen Shot 2019-05-01 at 12.19.19We moved our tools from China and back to England late in 2014, full of enthusiasm for what was to come. This weld and polish almost stopped the whole operation. Why? It turns out it is incredibly tricky. Welders up and down the country attempted and came to the conclusion it was impossible. We were lucky enough to find an independent welder in Berkshire, who trialed it and succeeded. Our welder now has trained and employs apprentices who can complete this weld. We’re so happy to have found our welder & also that these cafetières have helped grow specialist craftsmanship in England. (The photo to the left is before the polish.)
