Good News (hopefully)

I spoke with the shop this morning and they have gotten their BigShot tooling straightened out and dialed in. They are estimating that they could have most of my total order filled by a week from Monday. If so that would be absolutely awesome as I was fearing this could drag on for many weeks with a lot of starts and stops. It still has that potential of course but right now it's looking good that most folks on the list will be seeing a BigShot in their hand within two-three weeks or so. :)

I had a meeting today that took up my afternoon so was out of the shop... I'll be messing around with ti rulers over the weekend and hopefully knock out the finish work so I can have a sale. Maybe tomorrow afternoon or Sunday...supposed to be rainy anyway so nothing to do but stay in and work. :)

Sweet! I'm off this weekend. So is the wife, though, so we'll see if I can snag one...

Peter, the BigShots are better than hoped for. My two arrived safe and sound and they are truly amazing. They look fantastic, they have incredible heft and "feel" and they hold single malt in spectacular fashion. They are really cool! Thanks!

Oh that's great, thank you Richard, I'm very glad to hear it. Enjoy. :)

So the rulers might be out tomorrow? I work Sunday night so I wouldn't be able to get one, been looking forward to the most covenant Atwood tool I have seen yet!

Thanks

Did the BigShots end up getting that acid bath treatment (forget what it was called)?

QVolve said...

Those rulers are nuts. I want one so bad. As for the bigshot - I just hope I am far enough up the list to cop one. . . (fingers crossed)

FYI, The weather in Calif. is excellent!! The forecast calls for more Atwood Tools coming soon!!

Matt said...

To Paul! The bigshots did get the acid bath!! I'm sure they will be great. Can't remember where I heard that at but I believe it was in the last bigshot update.

Peter Atwood said...

Yes indeed, all will be passivated in nitric acid and then neutralized. They are very bright when they come back and it gets rid of most of the metallic odors. Obviously they should be washed out before using though.

Folks let me tell ya. If you haven't received your Big Shot yet. PLEASE be patient. It is well worth the wait. IF you are deciding against, do yourself a favor and get one. This friends is a magnificent piece here. I am not trying to brag or anything like that. What I am trying to say is Peter sure nipped this one in the bud with this one. Just WOW. You folks are just gonna love this thing.

Fantastic work Peter. You never fail to impress!!!

Thank you!!!
