I called today and I guess they are waiting for the barrels to come back from being chromed. They said they shipped so hopefully the barrels will arrive in the next couple of days and then Robinson has to do some more work to them. So hopefully a week and a half to 2 weeks before they start to ship. Though I have known Robinson to give misleading information to try to keep its costumers from running away.
The operation is bigger than us. We get parts and materials from vendors, and if they let US down, we have to let you guys down. When we tell you two weeks or a month, that's an honest estimate and not something we yank from our tails.
Things go wrong with machines. We only have a few machines and they run 24 hours a day. When one small thing is off on a week's worth of parts, that kills us. We have to start all over or do corrective machining on every single piece. It's not easy, and we work as hard as we can. Big issues like this don't help us with business booming the way it is. We just can't get stuff out the door fast enough.
I get told two weeks by the machine shop guys and the big boss man just as much as you guys do. Me and allie do our best to give accurate dates, but it just doesn't always work out that way. :banghead:
