Newsletter 75

This newsletter replaces No.72 on the web site. The list is being developed and the gaps are being filled in. Some new product ideas are being developed (slowly!), but it all takes time. The tidying and sorting of the range continues. My idea now is still to deepen the range rather than expand into new areas. I will also take any opportunities that come my way to improve the range of items.

FUTURE PRODUCTS
There are various ideas in the pipeline that are being developed: -

The state of play the progress (if any!) is noted! Very little in fact has happened the effort of keeping the ship as it exists on the road takes all the time that is available.

New Polish timers have been specified and prototypes are awaited. My producer is getting down to the new ideas and more prototypes are due very soon. Currently he has problems keeping up with demands for the existing range. A new design for a three function flat scroll timer is being developed. A new lighter weight Tomy timer is also being tested.  Now I have the combined engine squeeze off and D/T I'm also looking at a valve shut off operating on the same basis

More data charts. When I get around to writing them up.

The How To Do It Publications other ideas based upon my experiences and your questions are being written up.

I'm continuing to concentrate on getting the pipeline sorted and rationalisation rather than searching out new items unless the obvious appears! However as you will see from the above the list just keeps growing!
