Chris Hinton shuttles

Well, I have been trying to locate Chris Hinton to let him know that I am going to start engraving designs on my shuttles like he used to do. I just wanted to let him know out of respect for his work.

No one seems to know how to reach him. I tried emailing him and even went to his web site. The site is down and the email bounced back to me.

Shawn wants to try and make a similar shuttle like his but out of a single piece of wood and we want to engrave them. Since I can't reach him, I am going to move forward with my ideas and start making those types of shuttles in the very near future.

The engraving machine will be purchased tomorrow. I will have a brief period where I will have to learn how to use it, but I will be up and running SOON. I can't wait to get my hands on that machine. I already have ideas on shuttle designs and engraving ideas.

If you have something you would like to see on a shuttle, please let me know. I will do my best to get it done.

As Phil Robertson says " HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY "


  1. If you reach him let me know. However if you are making shuttles I am interested.

  2. I haven't been able to reach him. And neither has anyone else. I am still waiting for my engraving machine to come in. I will need a little while to learn the machine and then I will be making some like the Hinton Shuttles. My Etsy store is NAGStudio. I will be selling them there. I will also post on this blog when I get everything up and running.
