Hey guys, well today was the first day in quite some time my knee has been up to the task of actually going to the shop after work... it's been seriously brutal these last two weeks and this morning it just started "working". It feels pretty good right now and I hope it stays this way so I can get back into some exercise and avratech schedule!
Where I'm at, shop and operations wise: sold the bandsaw today, the mill is still for sale and it needs to go in order to free up important funds... but the main thing is getting the current guns done. What is holding them back is a couple dozen small simple parts that I need to turn on the lathe, but since my lathe has no power, I have no choice but to do it at work... and have not been able to stay late since my knee has literally been toast after the regular hours, to the point where I've almost been unable to walk (and I have been doing everything possible to treat it).
So, assuming the knee continues to work and improve like today, I should have those parts done quickly (sometime in the next 2 weeks), and then we will be able to ship out the guns (funds allowing which they should be). That is all I have immediately planned... the accessories and magslides I will have an exact date for in a few weeks when I have the financial requirements accounted for properly. There is also a dozen more guns to go out around the same time as the accessories (matched sets etc), special order stuff will also be attended to at that time.
Finally, for those few of you waiting for Falcon work, that will get started next week as well, knee and free time allowing. here's where the ten of them are at:
1- reiners (timing repair)
2- sparkys (timing repair)
3- mouses (timing repair)
4- commandomans (timing repair)
5- jacks (not sure?)
6- jims (cursed)
7- troys (ruined)
8- frasers (works)
9- tylers (works flawlessly)
10- mine (works)
