2017.9.1 UPDATE: A NEW BEGINNING

Folks,

I want to try to keep this one short and sweet, but I want more to make sure I let you know what’s going on here.  So, without any further delays, here we go.

OLD ORDERS

I managed to ship all the outstanding orders this week except a few that need molds replaced and a couple that just came in late in the week.  If you are still waiting for an order from before I re-opened, you should have received an email explaining the delay.  If not, please email me ASAP!  Something is wrong and I need to hear from you!

If you ordered in the last 7-10 days and have not received shipping notification, then your order has been cast and will ship as soon as the Labor Day holiday is over.

NEW ORDERS

You can start ordering again!  I am back to full operations!  Now spread the word.  Tell your buddies TMD is back and better than ever.

THE NEW SHOP

The shop is now put together.  It is still a mess from the scramble to get all the outstanding orders shipped, but, otherwise, I can operate as usual.  There is a LOT more room in the shop now, and it is easier to work than it was in the old shop.  I even have room for expansion.  I’ll post pictures next week — after I’ve cleaned up a bit.  Anyway, the point is: the new shop should serve us both well in the future.  It will make me more efficient, which means faster service for you.

THE NEW MASTER BENCH

I am putting the finishing touches on my new master and paint benches this weekend.  I’ll post pictures of those, too.  But I hesitate to do that because — honestly — I feel bad about showing off my new modeling space.  It is the best I have ever had and I feel a little guilty about it.  But I can say this: I can’t wait to get back to mastering, and that will be good for everyone who likes the TMD line.

ME, PERSONALLY

Finally, I have had it.  My body is giving up on me.  I have simply pushed this old, out of shape tub of lard I call my body too hard for too long.  Every joint I have aches.  I wake up hurting.  So, General BB has commanded that I shall not work from now until Tuesday morning.  I can build, but only for me.  Otherwise, I am under an involuntary 72-hour ban on all TMD operations (sorry).

THAT IS ALL

OK, that’s all I have for now.  More next week.  Until then, stay safe and try to build something (preferably something using TMD resin).

  1. Joe, on the knees, if you have problems there, I heartily recommend a full replacement on each to give you a new lease on life. I have two myself. A hip is good I am told, and much easier to get over than knees, but knees are better than rotator cuffs, but those help tremendously, too. I am 62 now, going on 3 years with the final of the knee surgeries and I am doing stuff I had to quit doing when I was about 36.
    Hope this is some help. God’s common grace to all of his creation includes medicine from the minds God gave men, even unbelievers. So I thank God every single day that I remember what it was like before.
