What is the pyrite infill? The pyrite came to us as a finished tile and is made in
India, the Pyrite mineral (which is fools gold) is set in resin on a marble backing,
then the top surface is ground and polished, revealing a unique and gorgeous finish
One offs, specials and high quality work from Safire:
A machined brass vice fitting with a Waterjet profiled Pyrite inset.
Brass plate machined from the front
Brass plate machined from the back
Note the sharp internal corners from the milling process
Combined Waterjet and machining:-
This is a good in-site into the quality of our work, we were commissioned to produce
this one off feature part for a display piece of our clients work. As High end furniture
makers they wanted to show off their ability, quality and some fine materials. We
machined the front jaw of this vice out of a solid block of brass, it measures 300mm
x 150mm x 38mm. The brass was machined on all faces, then machine on the front to
a depth of 17mm leaving a thin boarder of 3mm all round, Note the sharp internal
corners on the full internal depth that were very difficult to produce. We then water
jet cut the pyrite slab which is a very awkward and unstable material to cut which
is also a very expensive. This was cut to a very fine tolerance for a perfect fit.
This is a one off specialised high quality job, We offer a wide range of services
and abilities, please have a look at our Safire website for more information on machining.
