September 24, 2012 Thank you to everyone for a very successful NEAT Fair. It was amazing. I spent last week working with a manual cutter to get back some inventory and ship some backorders. I started with the small wings that would be the least waste for errors. I have the manual cutter tuned now and I have Mini Gremlin kits back in stock at this point and will be doing full sized Gremlins in the next few days. Once I have some inventory and breathing room I can do the CORRECT fix to my computerized cutter and get things back to normal. Thank you for your patience - Jim

Please note that I will no longer be doing custom core cutting. I will continue to supply standard products but I don't have the time available to do custom wings. I hope to update all the web pages today to reflect this. I have tried in the past to fit them in but the demand has been too high for the time I have available. I felt the Gremlin and 2 meter replacement wing kits were the best I could hope to maintain in stock.
