Well, it was a fairly good week, but I had one major set-back. I’ll explain.
THE GOOD PART
First, I was able to pretty much finish the work I needed to do it the shop. I got the new air compressor set up and finished some other carpentry work I needed to do. Then I got the molds put away and managed a general clean-up. So the shop is good and, if I try harder to keep it clean, it should be good for a long time.
A MAJOR SET-BACK
I did encounter one major issue. I discovered that my vacuum chamber has finally given up the fight. This is our original vacuum, so it has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Still, I lost several pounds of rubber and damaged a very important master before I realized that the vacuum was not working properly anymore. Luckily, I have a back-up vacuum pump/chamber.
Next week, I plan to focus on computer work. I hope to catch up with all emails, and then turn to the web site. If all goes well, it will soon be easier to find things on our page. I also hope to start editing the listings so that I can provide better pictures and cross reference major listings with other products you might want to use with them.
I also hope to figure out and start the implementation of a public relations campaign. I suspect a great many of you do not realize how much we make (or maybe you’ve forgotten???). Anyway, I need to re-new some of our older items, especially since they are still up to current industry standards.
THAT IS ALL
As I hope you can see, while I am not working hard to push out new masters, I am working to catch up on all the stuff I still need to do to support TMD’s operations. I’ll have more news this time next week. Until then, stay safe and try to build something (preferably something using TMD resin).
