Jeff is the creative mastermind behind Backhand Bikes. Using AutoDesk Fusion360 and the practical knowledge he has gained in working a career in manufacturing, Jeff creates designs that are almost organic, but are CNC machined from metal. We talk about CAD/CAM, climb milling versus conventional milling, IMTS, ToolingU, and the perceptions versus the misconceptions of a college education.
