Is HDS still supplying lights to the government?It has always been like that. Except PJ wasn't PJ, he was Glen (another really great guy... haven't seen him for awhile... I need to call him.) A different place (actually an individual guy) with a pick and place machine did the electronics. When his machine broke and he didn't fix it, we moved to the small shop in Tucson for that. The original machine shop used changed owners and management and we switched from them as they suddenly forgot how to machine parts.
HDS fulfilled the government contracts the same way we fill orders now... except now we don't have to boil the lights. That was part of the production process on the first lights. I've seen photos of Henry and Glenn boiling them (it was a temperature sensor thing). Thank goodness we haven't had to boil them for years... though I heard the broth created was good.
What Novatac did after leaving Tucson is in no way part of how business at HDS is or was done.
What’s with the boiling?
