Mike Hill Modular Wheel Units Order aborted after 30 of 200 parts due to plasma cutter issue - Cutmaster 52 is burning a tip every 10 parts even though air dryer is in place. We need an air dryer as our plasma cutter exploded after water trap filled up and spilled inside machine. Rest of Mike Hill order - we will be cutting by hand and reducing 6-way to 4-way blade on the bulldozer unless I can pull some magic. Cloverdale Manufacturing 6 in 60 Metal Order expected today - will be finished Tuesday because it is taking them longer than expected to do 4-sided tubing. Got all flats and 16 10 foot tubes, 1/4", so far.
