we are also working on Kit2 of the new batch of showmans and kit one of the new single crank compound model.

hubs, covers rivets etc are all done...

general production update: november 2013 Work1113013_zps7d49d344

wheels rims are rolled...

general production update: november 2013 Work1113014_zpsd37cd077

and are now being welded up...

general production update: november 2013 Work1113016_zpsd5d3a9d7

and we just have the spokes to do on this and then its ready.

also been working on the showmans flywheels...

general production update: november 2013 Work1113023_zps3daa3549

also probably worth a mention is the small change to the way production is manged. general organization, material ordering and preparation used to be shared by about four different people. all this will now be done by Ian, through direct contact with Dean and Steve, allowing the rest of us to get on getting the bits made Cool 

more updates soon, but if i do forget. just shout Wink

Burrell 4" Agric.

It is a long time since we had Kit 19. When is Kit 20 due. I see no mention of it in your forecast of production.

It is very cold in the workshop with nothing to do!

Peter.
