Over a period of nearly 40 years I have made use of the services of Warwick Richardson and his colleagues for toolmaking, die-making and precision engineering. In all this time I have never lost my sense of awe at the thoroughness of this team. I started work in a tool-room (before becoming a professional mechanical engineer) and therefore have knowledge of the techniques of machining and so on, but these guys actually think deeply about the job and the “traps” that might be inherent in it even before the first cut. If you have a job that needs precision or quality, or input from experienced people, then I thoroughly recommend that you contact them.
