    That's quite interesting. But geez, only a dozen pins cast at a time? Assuming a ten minute cycle (which might be generous), that's nearly 14 hours of constant work just to produce 1000 blank pins. Casting really is the bottleneck here.

    What type of lapel pin are Pinny Arcade pins anyway? Mike said he wanted a high quality product back when they first revealed them, so I assumed they went with cloisonne, which aren't painted...

    I believe the Pinny Arcade pins are made of a higher quality and are made at a faster pace. This is interesting - but I don't believe the process is the same. It seems far more labour intensive than it needs to be, and I could see dozens of steps where it could have been machine manufactured.

    I'd really like to know more about how they are made, and Brian was supposed to be getting the metallurgy report so we know how to clean them (looking at the Gold Pins, but not too hard because even looks tarnish them)

    UG I feel you there. Bless you Brian, where ever you are.
