Today went by fast. We had 2 scheduled visitors today. Local guys that were coming to swap out mouthpiece parts on their 5MM orders. We also had a family stop in unexpectedly from Minnesota. That was a lot of fun as well. Zander is still here and he's been helping out a lot and teaching us a lot about things kids know these days. Around the shop here's what's been going on.
This morning I answered emails and did some basic office duty stuff. Then I did the final clean up and assembly on a custom trumpet build that Christine finished off yesterday. Did some photographs of that... and chatted with our MN visitors. Then I spent a couple of hours engraving mouthpiece bodies.
Joe finished up making mouthpiece bodies this morning. Other than that he's been doing shipping and building mouthpieces for clients.
Jason completed a custom horn order this morning and has been working on another today as well. He's moving on to engraving mouthpiece throats with the laser. He will need to put in an order for brass stock before he goes home. We're hoping to get another impromptu trumpet lesson in before we all head home.
Christine completed finishing work on a custom horn today and has been working on another. When she hasn't had her hands in gloves for finishing... she's been helping all of our visitors try out horns and fit them for mouthpieces.
One of our surprise visitors today all the way from Minnesota!
