This past week informed us of a change in our schedule. One of our vendors wrote to tell us our burnout kiln, which was originally noted as “in stock”, will require assembly at the factory; lead time, three to four weeks. Add to that a suggested shipping estimate of seven to ten business days leaves us somewhere at the end of November to finalize our equipment deliveries. It now pushes our production schedule back a month. This means we won’t see our product stock completed until after the holiday season.
In the meantime, our shop is being organized with the new equipment, tools and supplies that have been received and now awaits only the final deliveries of the kiln and 3D printer.
This Friday will include a visit to the Redd School to lend our expertise to the robotics class in the use of 3D modeling software. We hope that once again, the class will be able to attend the national robotics challenge at the end of the semester, at which they will compete with other schools of all levels, from across the country.
Quote of the week:
“The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.”
