OTM Inc started this week cleaning up after M4. What a great show.
More fitting parts
We’re also still working on fitting parts on the Timber Heritage Association fuel injectors. I actually got an email from the machinist we use to have Washington tips made. He said:
“I’ve been working on the numbers pretty hard, I didn’t think you’d like a $300 price for tips. Our biggest hurdle has been fixturing, keeping the concentricity of the sac within .0015″ at that depth isn’t easy. The best I can do is $150.00 each in 12 pc lots with six drilled & six not, 6 drilled comes in at $214. If you have the fixture to hold these while drilling the spray holes (that we can use) knock off $50.00 each.”
Seattle Tug Boat Races
This year’s Seattle Tugboat Races were this Saturday, and although the race results were anticlimactic for the heavy duties, the Maris Pearl won the Tugboat Annie Award. Yay! The Chief finished the race under its own power. Another yay!
