Last I heard was castings were the issue. I read on another site a person musing why small entities can't seem to do these things. I certainly don't know all the problems, but progress seems very slow. Just curious. Cheers, Jim CCRR:)

Hi Jim and All,

There have been 2 delays. I still need the stack and domes from Kim, and I "think" he's been busy with work since I haven't heard from him in a couple months. The second delay is me. I haven't been able to do anything Z in 2 months due to a radial nerve palsy, a pinched nerve in my arm that has rendered my right hand usless. It's just starting to improve, but I still have a lot of physical therapy to go and no set date that I'll have full use back. No pain, just frustrating. Hopefully after the holidays we can make further progress. All Z best,

Michael Hilliard

Micheal, That's terrible news. I don't know what Kim is up to. Luckly I'm ambidextrous, but still I wouldn't want any nerve palsy. Get well soon and let us know of any progress. Cheers, Jim CCRR:)
