About Us

We are makers. Creators. Tinkerers. Engineers.

We do things differently, making tools with the mind-set that they must last beyond a single lifetime. We bring old tool patents to back life using materials and machining not seen outside of high-performance engineering.

We love to over-engineer the simple things and bringing large and otherwise unobtainable things into the miniature world, so we can all enjoy them on a new level.

What is MetMo

MetMo is our philosophy. Metal in Motion. The peak of engineering excellence in industrial, aesthetic and functional design. Precision engineering of cutting-edge quality, delivered to your hands.

MetMo is not about producing low grade products for mass market re-selling. Instead, we focus on low volume ideas that can be interesting and more fun for us all to share our love for engineering and fascination with mechanical design.

The Company

The MetMo Cube was our first creation back in 2019, the world's first desk toy produced with wire EDM, that was only made possible by Kickstarter crowdfunding.

A piece of engineering so painstakingly slow to produce, you can see why it's a process reserved for the most specialist tasks. What can be achieved is impressive, but there was no way of ever owning something that these machines produced (unless you're lucky enough to own a nuclear submarine...)

Metmo Cube with metal textures

The MetMo Cube paved the way for 5 more MetMo products, all funded by our community, with the latest being our MetMo Pocket Driver.

Since the making of the MetMo Cube, our team has almost tripled in size to keep up with the love for our products. Over the years we have created desk fidgets and pens but have found the most joy recently in bringing antique hand tools back to life.

Our Mission

To make products that people love, and have fun doing it.

(Simple, Right?)

It's been a huge joy of ours creating new things, bringing them to life and then sharing them with the world and our MetMo Community. We couldn't have got to where we are today without the amazing support shown by all MetMo's supporters, and we hope we can continue to grow together.

The Team

Front row: Serena, Shay, James, Peg was behind the camera

We're a small team of engineers and friends, banded together through a love for cutting-edge design that we are dedicated to delivering. We've made tools and precision instruments of intrigue in the past and deliver them no matter what problems the world has thrown at us, through Covid, wars and recessions, we're passionate about continuing to deliver on what we promise.

Lead by the designers of all things MetMo, James and Sean. Sean designed large-scale complex machinery for manufacturing products at high speed, and James worked in the automotive and aerospace industry tweaking various composite structures. With Peg leading our Kickstarter Journey over the years.
