We are pleased to announce that we are the sole official UK supplier of My Shank products

[I can already vouch for this fantastic product… cleanest sounding lathe cut ever!
—Colin Herrick (Time Released Sound): Elska, Dancing Alone.]

As you will already be aware, My Shank have spent 4+ years, and considerable financial investment, into developing a new type of blank for diamond cutting. Essentially these are pressed blank records with the same shape/profile of a pressed record; where they differ is that the plastics used are bespoke and therefore suitable for diamond cutting. They are not just blank records sourced from a pressing plant.

My Shank have built their own pressing plant, which runs on renewable energy. The plastics used are recycled. The pigments are organic.

This is an exciting new era for the lathe-cutting industry.

Over the next few weeks we will be getting things in order to supply UK lathe-cutters. We will not be taking any pre-orders and will only open shop once we have stock. We encourage you to send an email to to say hello.

Initially the new V2 style blank is only available in 12” format with 7” and 10” to follow in early September. We will be stocking some of the V1 style blanks in other formats.

LONDON: for people based in or around London, we are partnering with our friends at state51 for those of you who wish to save on postage and collect your orders. Please keep in mind that you’ll still need to order through us and wait for it to be ready to collect. You will not be able to go there unannounced and purchase direct from State51.

Stylus: we will also be handling all sales and resharpening of styli. My Shank supply and resharpen styli for some of the biggest disc mastering studio’s in the world and have been making styli for 15 years.

FOR NOW: please continue to order through My Shank directly as they are the only place who supply their products. Once we are operational, then we will be the only point of sales for their blanks & styli.

We look forward to hearing from you
