Who am I?

Theodor Bastberget

I have worked as a computer/network technician for 16 years, been a developer, technical manager, operations technician and trainer. Has a degree in mechanics and electronics, has a certificate as a service electrician and has worked as a radio tv repairman.

I am authorized on Bernina (incl. the new 800 series), Brother, BabyLock, Janome, elna, JUKI, Husqvarna and PFAFF. Good expertise in overlock and cover machines.

At I have made the courses on basic operation and use of overlock and sewing machine.

My motto:
"Anything is possible, the impossible only takes a little longer."

Why 3D Printing?

For as long as I can remember I fixed, repaired and made various mechanical, data and electronic things. All the time my motto has been that everything can be repaired. When I have issues where I can not buy new spare parts, I have had to think outside the box to solve the problem.

I constantly came across issues I thought could be solved with a 3D Printer, so a PRUSA I3 MK3 (now upgraded to MK4) was purchased. This opened up a whole new world and I was constantly making new spare parts that were no longer produced. In addition, I made upgrades so that you can, for example, use a new type of power cord instead of a standard that no longer exists.

This was the start of this online store that I hope will be able to help me continue with this work that I likes so well and thinks is very important in a use-and-throw world that we live in now.
