Engineering or just Magic?

Monday 26 June marked the twentieth anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter novel. This inspired some of our engineers to try and use a little magic themselves and create the items previously produced by the Peverell Brothers.


That’s right, we created our very own Elder Wand, Resurrection Stone and Cloak of Invisibility. Unfortunately, like the books we’ll have to use our imagination to get our full use out of them!
 Elder Wand:


All these items were rendered by our engineers using Solidworks. We utilised variety of functions to create these mystical items such special surface functions and engraving  features to mark the items so that they appeared as true to their film counterparts as possible.
Resurrection Stone with and without its ring:

Last, but certainly not least, check out our invisibility cloak!
Can’t you see (well you can’t but..) how good a job we’ve done!


Why not give us a challenge and see what other magical items we can conjure up?

White Collar Fight Night


Business men Russ Arrowsmith, Lee Kenney, Kev Heap, John Edmundson and Chris Wood all had been involved with boxing many years ago and stepped back into the ring by setting up a “White Collar” boxing event for un-boxed local business men. These events help raise money for local charities, such as The Salfordian Trust, Francis House Children’s Hospice.

 Fish4Parts is proud to be a sponsor for the White Collar Fight Night in aid of Francis House Hospice in Didsbury.

 Russ Arrowsmith, a Salford amateur boxing stalwart, our MD, and a key figure in Arrow boxing club; also roped in Kev Heap, general manager of Edmundson Electrical, who boxed at the famous Marchant’s gym in Salford, and Chris Wood, sales director of MAP Engineering and who will put his unbeaten four-fight record on the line.

 And when Lee Kenney, the managing director of plumbing parts company Comap Westco got involved, the worthy cause was decided, as Lee’s nephew Paul died at the hospice in 1995.

 Below we show various matches over a number of different Fight Nights.
