    All I know is that the people with deposts down on the heads will get the first ones. I would be very surprised if they were not released by spring.

    I called TA today and they are saying my heads will be ready in December so that's not too long away! Not sure how many sets are in this first run.

    You read it, they said December.

    I know, you thought because they said that in Sept. of 2016 you thought it would be December of 2016. LOL But in all actuality they only said in December, they didn't say which year that December would be.


    Maybe it will be this year in December?

    I asked them to come on here and give an update... Like I said in the other thread they lost two employees recently, but hired back a good guy so things will come together here.

    I guess it's easy to poke fun when one does not know the entire story of what's really going on behind the scenes. This sort of thing takes time, and setbacks are a reality.

    It'll get here.

    The new machinist started this week. We hope he can hit the ground running but there's always an adjustment period to get the hang of things. I believe he is going to be running other parts to fill backorders, then he will transition to completing the fixture and program for the heads.
