Amist chaos and progress, time flies...
But somehow, never seems to move as fast as you thought it did. We've mostly moved into he new shop, and have been plugging away at lots of projects coming in, while working at calibrating the new equipment and getting material samples for engraving and cutting.
Part of what makes that so difficult is that we are working with materials for firearms, and it is not cheap to just start cutting into a S&W M&P frame.
Our patterns and jigs for laser cutting gagues is being worked on at the moment too. Cut by laser is much more efficient for all of our gauges because of the thickness of the materials involved. Knife based cutters do OK for small runs, but because of our insistence on using the best materials for all of our work, it gets tough to do a larger order or run for a club or distributor.
Speaking of which, we are working hard with suppliers to keep material costs down, so our prices do not raise, but there may be an increase coming this summer. We will do what we can to keep things affordable, and think that even at an increased price, ADW gauges are the best in the business, hands down.
Look for more photos on our facebook page as we get going with the laser. Once we are good, we will be taking orders for engraving and for custom cut products, big and small.
