Hello everyone 👋
Please find the twenty-first instalment of our weekly update below.
Week Ending 09/07/2021 (Friday)
No Logo Mills - I've made good progress assembling the first batch this week. I'll start shipping mills this coming week!
Logo Trials - We've received engraved samples, ready for paint trials (image & video below). We might have to play around with the depth but I think this option looks great. We're still waiting to receive trial pieces with cast lettering, but they are due back to us on Tuesday. The engraved mills will be coated by the middle of this week. I'm hoping to share images of both trial sets by the end of the week ahead (est. 18/07).
Logo Mills - If the first round of trials yields good results, 🤞 my estimate is to start delivering mills with logos by mid-August.
A Slightly Deeper Dive
I've started sending emails to double-check colour preference and to confirm shipping addresses. If you haven't received an email yet, I'm working my way through the list and will be in touch very soon. Feel free to drop me an email with your preference if you'd prefer.
While good progress was made assembling no logo mills this week, I'm now nearly stopped waiting to receive spindles - material stock shortages have caused extended wait times. I'm hoping for more parts to be delivered in the next 1-2 weeks.
If I've sent you an email already, you won't be affected by this. If I'm yet to send you an email, it likely won't affect you unless you ordered in the last month. It largely depends on whether the earliest customers would prefer to receive their orders with/without a logo.
Unfortunately, we received the EDPM (rubber) parts for the mill rests' on Saturday, and they've not been made correctly at all. I'll be in touch with the company that made them on Monday morning to find out when they can dispatch conforming parts. Sadly this means the mill rests' won't be assembled up until I've received them at the correct size.
Lastly, upon closer inspection, we discovered that the pigeon blue mills had been coated in the wrong type of powder coating. These have been returned for re-paint and should be back with us next week.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me via: firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you'll all be cheering on England this evening in the final?! 😁
