Welcome to the Website of Tom Brierton
This website details a bit about my background, interests (particularly armature machining), hobbies, CV, and future plans.
Stop-motion armature machining is an art form in its own right, and often requires the following skills:
- Knowledge of working a milling machine and a metal lathe.
- Use of precision measuring tools, the most common of which include a dial caliper and micrometers.
- An understanding of anatomy and how joints move.
- Knowledge of various aluminum-based and steel-based metals.
- Brazing techniques.
