John, that is some sad "state of the economy" information. Those guys have been around for a very long time and everything I've ever used - made by them - was good equipment. I guess their remaining production will go to China, where it seems many other manufacturers have "gravitated". Some Chinese-made things are great - others, not-so-great. My company setup manufacturing in China (Shanghai) several years ago. Although I had personally written the specs for material recipe, (injection) molding temps, cooling times, densities, etc. - the company we were using would not stick to my specifications, and therefore we had to return much of the product. No amount of preplanning can compensate for delays like this, and another problem was that it takes so stinkin' long to wait on those ships to travel - everything works in slow motion. We quit having stuff made where we couldn't keep a constant eye on it. For us (not all), it was like "Cracker Jacks" - there was always a hidden surprise in every delivery; but unfortunately none of the surprises were ever good! We shut it down.
OPG3 Tweak everything!
