Hi Kev,

Think we'll go with the latter one that we've been too busy to find time to add an update as we've been concentrating on trying to get the bits made.

Since the beginning of December we have had almost every day had 2 of the team off for one reason or another.

At one point last week we were 3 down on numbers in production (& in theory only 5 guys make bits!!) & the week before that we were 2 short for the whole week! Today we were 2 staff members short & when you only have a team of 9 it hurts. All hands are on deck currently & as soon as we get a breather an update will be added.

Additional to this Steve last Monday dismissed our CNC Turner. This was done for reasons inappropriate to put on the forum, however it was a decision not taken lightly & you can imagine the short pain it is causing us. As the only other person with a lot of experience on the lathes was me so we had no option but to throw Mark (who's normally a skilled miller) in at the deep end & get him to switch intensively to the lathes so he could pick them up quickly. Initially everything he set was taking longer than normal however fortunately he's doing a splendid job now. It still leaves us struggling until a replacement is found.

I hope this helps you understand the reason the forum has taken a back seat recently.

All the best

Dean
