More toys ?

Progress with the new workshop is slow, but it is progress! To keep up with the demand we’re adding yet more equipment. Now it’s probably a boy thing, but don’t ya just love big toys that arrive in big boxes?!

And how much fun is our new forklift that we share with one of our neighbouring business pals! Yes it definitely is a boy thing!

Lurking under these cardboard boxes we have a new mitre saw and a new computerised mount cutter. They don’t come any better than these bits of kit, so all being well we’ll be able to keep our quality as high as we possibly can. We just need to get them installed now - and that’s no small job.

Incidentally, it’s interesting that the Cassese 969 mitre saw arrived on time from the French manufacturer, the Valiani mount cutter arrived on time from the Italian manufacturer, and the dust extraction system that was ordered from a UK manufacturer is now due to be 3 to 4 weeks later than their promised 3 to 4 week delivery - so about 6 or 7 weeks - and we all wonder why UK manufacturing is in the doldrums?!
