When you throw your hands up...
Okay, made a decision today...
If you recall in the last Update - we custom-built a "positive pressure" spray booth for coating the pens.
The booth worked well - but just not quite good enough. We still got little specks of dust here and there on the pens.
After persevering for a while I finally said, "okay, we're throwing in the towel on this one".
The good news from this is:
We're getting a company (down in Wellington around 600 miles from us) to do the coating. They are the company we were going to use originally ...before deciding we would give it a go and take the coating in-house.
These guys are absolutely excellent and I am very confident they will get the remaining pens (around 65 or so) back to us this month ...whereupon we will ship to you right away.
My apologies for there being so many "highs" and "lows" with this project. It's not gone as smoothly as I had hoped - but we are getting there!
If you have any questions or such - then please let me know.
To impossibly high standards,
