    I've just noticed, are you working in the machine shop? Talk about keeping an eye on product quality!
    Correct, it seems to be a good idea for the moment. Kind of ironic when your running your own job. It Should allow me to keep things moving better at the machine shop.

    compasillo: The Frapper maps no longer seem to work. Its a shame as there was allot of customers who had put themselves on there with comments.
    I have added a new google maps here: http://www.lummi.co.uk/Customers.html
    About to edit my sig line.

    1st Op on the Wee Ns's complete, hope to see the 2nd Op being set up soon.

    Rob, do you have a rough idea when you'll be able to start working on Raws? I have one on-order.

    It's very interesting to see photos of the products during manufacture. You should post more like this

    For some reason, I would LOVE to see some Raw Ti being manufactured...

    Hi Rob.

    Any idea when the Wee NS will be available for shipping again?

    I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel and maybe having a Wee NS is not just a fanciful dream of mine. Things seem to be looking much better at Lummi.

    Give us the word and I'll be ready and willing to take the risk/plunge and place an order, as long as it can be sent out and in my hand within 10-15 days of ordering.

    Keep the feedback going Rob.

    Did you say WEE Stainless Steel ? Here's hoping for a quick back-order catchup so we can see some stock available for sale soon...

    Cool. You need to get one of them getting engraved, that would be cool, I bet you have one engraved with Lummi Rob instead of Wee or Raw

    Heres a question, will you ever introduce custom engraving, how difficult would it be to implement this into the manufacturing.

    Hello all.

    Rob, what are the chances of you fulfilling my order for a torch? 7 months would seem an unacceptable time to wait, especially as you don't seem keen to reply to my emails or have the courtesy to give me a call and discuss?

    I'm a very reasonable guy and am reluctant to resort to a public forum, but enough is enough.

    Not viable at the machine shop at this time.

    Alasdair, I figure you are waiting for the Wee NS.?
    You can most likely see that I am in the later stages of the production process right now.
    I am hopeful to finally have these ready to dispatch in a weeks time.

    3 weeks? It was '3 weeks' back in January.

    I realise how hard it is to manufacture and deliver. It's the business I'm in myself, but surely you can see that after 7 months I might be a little bit annoyed?

    Would you rather give my money back and get rid of me, or are you confident of making a delivery shortly? There are no other options.

    Agreed, this has gone on far to long. I am extremely pleased to say that this is nearly all over for guys waiting for Wee NS's / SS/ & Ti's. As you can see from above posts these are actually almost complete & I would really appreciate it if you could just give me a little longer for your Wee NS to be finished. I have some more pics of the 2nd Op on the Wee Tail cap. I am at the machine shop this afternoon & hope to see the milling Ops begin.

    That's great to hear, if now you say that the Raw Ti's will follow immediately behind, I'll be personnally even more pleased!!!

    Nice machine work!

    It would be great to know what the music was for the dance. However, I don't think it will catch on!
