About me!


My name is Jonas Nix, owner and operator of Modusworks. I have a long history of messing around with anything mechanical, with a particular attention to detail. Inspired by both Grandfathers and my father( all woodworkers, builders, makers, etc.), I had a knack for fixing (and destroying) toys as a kid. I loved legos, then moved on to cars, welding, woodworking, then finally to machining in recent years. I have worked as a Registered Nurse in Alabama ER’s and ICU’s for the last 10 years.
I started building projects in my basement as soon as I had a place of my own, the first of which I can remember was a 12 foot tall Trebuchet that launched pool balls and chunks of concrete 100 yards or so, that was fun haha! I moved on to knife making as a hobby, then on to a couple duck calls with my brother Brad, and finally bought a Chinese lathe mill combo on which to learn my next venture.
One day, A friend suggested that I make some lanyard beads, to which I replied, “whats a lanyard bead?”. I discovered EDC through this friend and I was in love. I found a niche that I’d already been a part of, but never knew existed! I made a few items and was completely blown away that people actually offered me money for them!! I brought my passion for making and creating with me, and took on increasingly complex and interesting projects as suggested by customers. I have a particular interest in rare and/or interesting materials, with an emphasis on finishing. I have an extremely high standard for quality and surface finishes.
I am currently Modusworksing full time!! The ONLY way I can do that is with support from YOU!!!!! Thank you!!

What does Modusworks mean?

The term modus is Latin, meaning literally “the way” or “ the method”
Referring to my methodical work style and attention to detail, it insinuates that there is only one way to do something, the RIGHT WAY. There are many right ways to do many things, but I guarantee that my projects are carried out in the best way that I know how. I don’t claim to know everything, but I have an insatiable thirst for learning and improving.

I want you to LOVE what you buy from me.

What products do you sell?

Currently focusing on the spinner market, I make the Spinamathing spinner, and spinner grips in various exotic materials and in many sizes.
