Production continues and Escalates.

Well it has been a real busy month so far for me. My day job has ramped up the needed work several fold. This has caused my free evenings to be eliminated. However I am taking one evening a week and the weekends to work on my joystick cases.

On that front things are escalating. We are nearing completing the finishing stage of the Maple cases. Once that is done we will be installing the top and bottom panels. I wait until this stage in the process because the finish can build up enough to alter the fit of these panels.  My nephew is becoming a welcome assistant in the shop.  As we work through these cases he is learning the ropes.

I am also getting requests for joysticks and some of my electronics. The LED flashing circuits are seeing an increase in demand and I am looking into getting the boards printed professionally. This will save me quite a bit of time in the long run. Look for more information on this in the future.

Finally I have also inked a deal with a company called blenderbox.  This represents the first multiple case order I have received.  They have asked for seven of my cases with only two buttons and a two way joystick.  These will be mounted in kiosks to run a Space Invaders type game they are developing.  These kiosks will be in an upcoming trade show.   Thankfully I have worked out the steps for a production run of my cases so this should be quick and easy to accomplish.

Game On!!
