TRA Designs




    I'm a Christian, Father, and Veteran. I'm a full time mechanic and machinist. I'm Alaskan born and raised. What started out as learning to acid etch copper in my garage has led me to become passionate about machining and design. Teaching myself to force patina, to work with a lot of materials and to make bottle openers and custom gear has been an amazing process. I began creating my own Every Day Carry (EDC) gear after becoming involved with the EDC community online and on Instagram. I drew up some designs and contacted a great waterjet company out of Pensylvania, and Chugger The Chameleon was born. I've since made Chugger Chameleons in 18 materials (copper, brass, stainless steel, titanium, zirconium, mokuti, timascus, damascus,  superconductor, kevlar, micarta, resin, meteorite, silver, aluminum, carbon fiber, mokume, and bronze) to validate the design, and I will continue to experiment with more. I have ideas for new designs and I am constantly prototyping. Thank you for stopping by to check out my page and to show your support.
