May 2013

Production of the new blocks commences.


As a result of minor modifications to the tooling it was necessary to forego the production slot for the casting run. Rescheduling the manufacturing date meant that nothing could happen during March and April.  This minor frustration was more than compensated for when the casting started at the end of May.

As these photographs show, the quality of the raw articles is incredibly good.

No machining work has been undertaken: this is the casting after removal of the sprues and flashing.
