We’re always trying to innovate – even when we’re working with historical design. One of the things that’s most interesting and exciting about this work is finding new ways to incorporate modern technology in an ancient aesthetic.
In this case, it’s about strainer design! Strainers have come a long way since the 18th century, and we felt certain we could find a way to design a better strainer that could be efficiently produced and still look appropriate on a historical style drum. And we have!
We’ve teamed up with a talented local machinist to come up with a great design that would be conceptually the same as strainers used in the 18th and 19th centuries, but work better! We’ve got the preliminary CAD designs and should be prototyping the design in the next months. Stay tuned!
