"I could use a nap"

How's this for production?
Yup there's 120 Whistles setting there, go ahead count them.
Late Wednesday the Boss said it would be a few more days until I got the next job for the one of Machining Centers from the Lathe guys.
I jumped at the opportunity, and asked if I could run my Whistles since it was open.
The downside, was I had to redo all my programs since I had written them for the other CNC. That was a late evening.
So, these bodies are all machined.
I still need to make the caps, deburr everything, tie lanyards, and bag & tag.
While they aren't quite ready this is much better than mid November I was planning on.
By the way I believe my Wife thinks I have moved to the shop.

Gary,
You kidding? She has 1st. dibs;)
She said she needs one during recess when she substitutes. The school provides em, but she'd like her own germ free one.

John,
I figured since I had been talking them up for so long I had better get some going.

As always I appreciate the comments,
Kenn

What a GREAT! Pic Kenny. Now that is an awesome first run. Hmmm I was trying to look real hard to distinguish which were the few Ti ones hehehe :P

very very cool - does your shop do small custom orders - I'm a custom knifemaker and I want to start getting parts CNC out?

Wes,
Haha keep looking, no Ti ones yet;)

dcaston,
You can shoot me an Email.
We are a job shop, but it's ultimately up to the boss as to what work we accept.
