We have a 2 week maintenance shutdown over Christmas. First day back is tomorrow, Thursday.
The three anchors which had paint on them were soaking in Caustic Soda on Monday. The chains have all been wire tagged to differentiate them, and processing will start this week, and into next. We'll do a chain or two a day, to spread them out. The anchors will be easy and fast, the chains are the slower bit, slows down the line so spreading them out makes it seem easier!
I'll keep you informed.

Getting there... first chains out, looking good. But we're really busy and this isn't the highest priority (and hence the lowered price).

I'll post some payment methods later this or early next week.

We've become extremely busy (about 100 tonnes in the queue), and so no further progress on chains and anchors this week. There are three anchors and three chains done satisfactorily.
If anyone is desperate for timing, please say so, (can put in order of priority) otherwise hoping for all done before month end.
Quote a challenge to maintain correct identification through all processes without going to the extent of measuring each length. So far so good. :shock:
