Feeling Great

Yeah, so it's just amazing what one week or lazing about recovering from surgery will do for you. I'm feeling almost back to normal. I have a followup visit to the doc in a couple of days, but I think I'm ready for some light work this week.

The first batch of tools came back from heat treat a few days ago but they are going back for another round of tumbling. These guys had some shakeups over the winter and a bunch of older workers left. The new guys are just not paying enough attention yet and so they let stuff out the door before it's ready. Not enough cycle time on the tumblers so back they go and I gave them a good chewing out. The second batch was due to ship to me on Friday but after our discussion they agreed to just go ahead and retumble those as well as a preemptive step. I should be getting that second batch by mid week and so end of this week I think the sales will finally be starting back up.

Off to do taxes now. :(

Peter, thanks for the update and I am sure that we are all glad that you feel much better.

I just finished my taxes, and it wasn't good.

Glad to hear you're healing so well! Taxes aren't exactly what I'd call a great recovery tool, but I suppose it has to be done.

Don't push too hard right away, no need to rush!

Glad you escaped from the hospital.Why not invest in some heat treat,tumble equipment? Seems like with all the shipping,quality issues it might be a thought.
Thanks Peter

Please get well soon. I haven't the opportunity to get any of your fine tools and I don't want to pay triple to the ebayers in the case of your untimely demise. May you live to be a hundred.
