I am combining the days as there was not a lot done.
Friday morning had a client pick up a drunken chess board from the workshop and order 3 cheese boards for Christmas.
Then drove 45 minutes up to the factory in Yandina to help deliver my first order of the Torque Work Cente.
This was also a way to combine it with a LJ visit, David AKA Wyeth lives just down the road in Nambour so rather than boxing the machine up and sending it we thought we would fully assemble it and throw it on the back of the ute and drive it over,,
His workshop is on the side of a small mountain.. ok hill,.. in the middle of 17 acres of very private and secluded land.. very peaceful. Had a very enjoyable visit and then it was back the factory for a few beers.
As an aside. Keith [manufacturer of the wee beastie and other machines..] saw the comment about CNC machines… he would like me to mention that he also designs and manufactures CNC machines for metal and wood. In fact the largest was 50’ by 12’ and he would like to know if the person making the comments about Aussies and MNCs would like to order one of these buggers. He reckons there is more demand for the Torque Work Centres and a larger market than for the CNC that cost many times more than the TWC and are not as versatile or user friendly,
Ended up staying at Aarons for a barbeque and a few more beers and then went home the next morning, day 8 and thats about it for day 8
Sorry If I was cause for concern when I didn’t post yesterday.
I am in the workshop today and have a whole heap of new ideas to tackle.
