Hello everyone 👋
Please find the twenty-second instalment of our weekly update below.
Week Ending 16/07/2021 (Friday)
No Logo Mills - I've assembled all the mills I can with the components I have around me. We have an order in for more parts, I touched on last week, but there are extended wait times to buy the material in that we need.
I shipped a few sets this week, unfortunately one set arrived damaged, I am waiting on a delivery of exterior mailer boxes that will provide additional protection. They were due on Friday, but didn't turn up, as soon as they're here I will start shipping orders.
Logo Trials - The engraving trials went really well - I think the results look great and this method will eliminate all of the issues I was concerned about (images below).
I have requested that we do one more test before machining the castings we have waiting at the machine shop (no time added). I want to be sure the engraved logo shows through in black still, just in case I need to adjust the engraving thickness.
I've updated the Gantt chart but I expect the second trial to finish early this week, as soon as we have the green light the machine shop have given me a 2 week turn around, followed by two weeks at paint and one to two weeks of assembly / packing (Estimated 20-28th August).
Other News - I've been asked by a several customers to publish a video of me using the mills. I have tried to shoot something that looks good, but I'm no videographer as you'll probably see. But hopefully the video below will give you a flavour of what to expect. I will enlist the help of a professional soon! I've added some images of the Coral Red & Purple Mills below too. 😃
Thanks for reading again.
