Sometimes it seems like it takes us until Wednesday to catch our breath here. Guess who is here visiting for a while? Jason's nephew Zander (helping out above) from Billings, MT. He's getting in the groove here at Harrelson Trumpets and helping us stay on task.
Joe finished up VMTs on the lathe this morning and switched tooling back over to Mouthpiece Bodies. The tomorrow the lathe will be set back up for custom mouthpiece bodies. Then a run of Pollard Water Keys. The lathe has been in almost constant motion... which is how we like it.
Christine has been doing finishing work on custom trumpet builds. Once those are hand finished... I will be doing final assembly.
Jason is building said horns... and I have been handling residual emails and random tasks that were lagging behind in my absence. Tomorrow I will be finishing horns and designing the CAD programming for a number of custom engraving projects that have been waiting for me. What else have I been forgetting? We had two visitors yesterday... and it was quite the full house. In a good way. John Reid was in town trying out mouthpieces. John tours with KC and the Sunshine Band and has a lot of note not in the staff... if you know what I mean!
Joe's pretty happy he switched the tooling and set up the machine to cut bodies this morning without having to ask a single question... and without breaking any tools. And... below... you can see both Oscar... and John Reid's daughter were pretty happy to play with Zander yesterday. Full house!
