It's taken me a while to get to them but I just pulled the third aluminum block out of the machine. I have more aluminum castings ordered and things look good with the machining. After the next 8 blocks it will be time to start on the next batch of customers.

I really appreciate the patience of the current depositors who have stuck with it through all the delays. "Thankyou" just doesn't seem like enough to say.

I have no doubt that the iron will take off soon too.

I have told dozens of people to keep their deposit money in hand until I get things going smoothly. That being said, would it be possible to get an idea of how many more people here plan to order a block? I would like to take such info to the bank as I try to get another machine just dedicated to blocks.
