    Default Changes @ Lummi

    Just a heads up really, & somethings that should have been addressed a while back.
    I have a rather large amount of back orders which I must get fulfilled very soon.
    A plan is in the works to get the majority of back orders dispatched within the next three weeks.
    All back orders should be dispatched before the end of May.

    Unfortunatly there has not been enough business from Lummi recently.
    I am an Electrician by trade & fortunately for my finances an electrician friend is providing me some paid work, literally as of today.
    Still itching from the fibre glass loft insulation.
    I plan to do about 3 days a week electrical work to subsidise the torch business.
    This will be beneficial right now. It will mean I may not be quite so quick in my online responses.
    There is no plan what so ever to wind Lummi down. I simply have to do something other to earn a living at this time.
    I hope you guys here on cpf will continue to support me. All for now.

    Looking forward to purchasing some of the tritium beads from you. I think communicating honestly to your customer like you did in this post is a good thing. Thanks for the awesome lights/creations and best of luck with the electrician work!

    The economy is a bitch Rob.

    It's great that you have a second string to your bow and that Lummi will survive

    Keep on working for your dream mate.

    Thumbs up Re: Changes @ Lummi

    Best of luck with it all Rob.

    Love my RAW AL and will place an order for a Wee NS for the wifey as soon as I can afford to - in the next month. Am also saving up for a RAW SS to replace the AL, and then there's the MiL...

    Hi Rob.

    Good to here this news and hope you're back on track real soon.

    Can I ask one favour please?. When the back-order has been filled, can you let us know on the forum. I am sure when the green flag is shown, myself, along with all your supporters, will be ready to pull the trigger on orders again. Your lights are truly fantastic.

    Three cheers for a brighter Lummi future.

    Regards and good luck with it all Rob.

    You gotta do what you gotta do. If you have any spare time the new CR2 sure would be nice. Also a list of what you could fulfill now would be nice.

    Best of luck to you Rob with getting this all sorted out. Your business is a somewhat unique one (custom lights, but sold as if they were retail lights) and I don't want you to close down Lummi.

    Soon this will all be sorted and things will be back to normal, I am sure of it

    You're doing the right thing!

    Once all backorders are shipped, it'll go upwards again. Keep us posted and make a new beginning in june, letting people know that there will be a new Lummi!

    All the best!!!

    Running attic wiring sucks. Making money is good though.

    Good for you, Rob. The times are hard ATM and I think we are all downsizing and struggling to make ends meet.

    But the thought of no more Orbs doesn't bear thinking about! Good luck with your back orders. I will wait patiently for any of your new works to emerge when they can.

    All the best.

    Good on ya Rob. I'm glad that Lummi lives and like others can wait for any new products you may come up with.

    I'm sure once things start to pick up you'll be back in the Lummi Lab full time again.

    In the mean time in your new roll as a sparks, would you be so kind as to help preserve my job? How? By always buying a well known brand of electrical products [switches/sockets etc] made by the sea side in Essex.

    Think of it as an investment, I'm sure you'll get the money back in the coming months when I buy a light from you!

    All the best....

    .

    +1. I too truly believe that once customers know that they are able to receive product in a timely fashion, you will see orders spike. I know I would love to order something from you.

    All the best Rob!

    Thanks for sharing and good luck, Rob. Everyone has nothing but the highest praise for your lights, which is why I ordered one a while back. Can't wait to receive it.

    Isn't the fiberglass packed into batts that you can lift out of the way? They don't still use the loose stuff in the UK, do they? I would've thought that would be considered a health hazard.
