That must be cool to watch 2 machines running at the same time making you money. How's that PR keeping up with the new one?

60 blanks cut, 21 ready for the knife, waiting on 219 to be delivered for cutting...it's awesome watching both machines pumping this stuff out. The shop I'm cutting these for is doing all the finishing and installation. Sure it can get a little stressful at times, especially with the double sided machining...Owner of the other shop walks in to our office and asks if we can handle a production run between 300-400 panels...I told him show me the deposit and we start today!

Gene,

Excellent work.

This such a good target market for where you live. The product is so natural for your location and your quality makes for success. I've always been a target market person. That's the way to go as opposed general contracting work which is more difficult to manage. Pricing for general work keeps a person busy wondering.

Keep up the good work and show us what you're doing.

Gene , I went back again and looked at your pictures. Has it ever occured to you to use 2 spindles? Could cut your time in half ! I see you do a lot of duplicate side by side work.

Impressive. How thick are those? Did you use a special bit of any kind? They look really smooth on the cut.
