Hi everyone

today we had the first rough mock up of the Lykamobile seat arrive, a couple of modifications need doing, and the actual armrest have been made in less pieces than the mock up, but I think looking at the pictures below you will all agree that it looks very good.

I think Craig has been busy with getting the new CNC mill up to 100% production. So guessing he does not have much time for picture taking.

yes sorry. been too busy really. the new machine only cost us a day in production time as we couldnt work as they brought it into the factory, although we were busy helping them.

the main problem is the machine loader has been on holiday for 3 weeks, this means i have to set and load the machines at the same time. with things to get on with something has to give and the first place to save time is taking and posting photos. thats as simple as it gets really.

anyway, some current photos...

Need to check which kit you are due next, but we have been through the lists of what people need this month, and what they can have. at this stage we can get a kit out to everyone before Christmas if you haven't already had a kit this month.

Thanks

please remember... personal kit enquiries are best done with a phone call. we dont all have the time to monitor the forum on a regular basis and those that do choose to ignore most of the questions they see. Rolling Eyes

ok, a little review of the last year...

the production up-dates may be thin on the ground at the moment but i can assure you that that is not a reflecton of the effort going on behind the scenes. this year has seen some changes at STW that will go on to have a long lasting effect... hopefully.

there have been sone staff changes, some very successfull and some an out right disaster... but it takes a certain kind of person to fit in at STW and thats not always easy to find. being a VERY small company, anyone who has a background of large companies can find it a struggle.

new machines have arrived. a massive help in getting the work done quickly and accurately. Dean has even been looking into a third new machine !!! it will all come down to the price Laughing

and finaly Dean, after the loss of steve he has found it hard at times. without blowing his trumpet too much i have to say he has now found a new enthusiasm for the business and is always improving in every way when it comes to being the "Boss" (singular). the sale of STW is now firmly OFF and hopefully some more improvements will happen next year. Cool

So glad you guys have chosen to go for the leather/fake leather and frame design rather than the solid wood! Top effort fair play.
