For our WestonBoxes.com customers who may not be aware, S.B.Weston Ltd. are a plastic injection moulding company. We have our own product range – WestonBoxes, but also undertake ‘trade’ moulding jobs for numerous clients.
People come to us with an idea for a plastic product, and we take the idea, evolve the design so that all the features required to successfully injection mould are included, we then create a mould tool and manufacture from that mould at our plant in Sunbury-on-Thames.
In 2009 we did exactly this for Queen guitarist Brian May with his OWL stereoscope. We worked with Brian to evolve his design into a fully functioning, flat-packing, injection mouldable stereoscopic viewer. The product was a great success, as was the book in which the stereo viewer was included – ‘A Village Lost & Found‘ – which is available from the London Stereoscopic Society website.
We are delighted to announce that Brian has recently returned to S.B.Weston looking to work on a new plastic injection moulding project. A presentation box to accompany the OWL viewer and a new range of stereo cards which will soon be available, from the London stereoscopic company website. I can’t reveal much more than that about what this product is at this stage, but as the details of this new venture become more public, you will be the first to read up on our progress with Brian right here.
If you are not familiar with the technique of stereoscopic photography, then I recommend you invest in the book ‘A Village Lost & Found’ It has great examples of the very effective 3D stereocards as available in the 1850’s but also clearly and easily explains the process so that you can create your own stereoscopic photos!
