Quiet Times

First of all I'd like to say hi to any new readers now following me after the Derby Mini Maker Faire at the weekend. I had a great time talking to everyone, I always forget to take photos of my stall so hopefully some will surface soon (and so they did, a friend just sent me the above pic).

I realise it's been just over a week since my last post and my productivity is down in general. Most of last week I was building up stock for the maker faire but I suffered quite a blow when my laser tube burned out, I'm now waiting on a replacement to arrive. The one small advantage to not selling much at the weekend is that I now have enough stock to tide me over. Once it's functional again I have a small backlog to clear as well as some commission work to do so it's going to stay quiet round here for a wee bit longer.

In more exciting news though I have been making the most of the downtime. I have 2 new large projects (not laser cut) that I've been working on for quite some time and both of those are nearly ready to be announced. I would hope to be sharing some of this exciting news with you by the end of next week which, perhaps not coincidently, will match up with my appearance at the Model Engineers Show (my last exhibition of the year).
