    I only count 98.

    It's impressive to see them all together like that. Looks like you've got the production process all dialed in.

    That is some serious outlay displayed there. Hope they are selling well, you have a very nice production line created. I am envious.

    We should start calling you "Rambo"

    Nice work, and when you do a production run like that is sure cuts down the time per unit don't it

    Yes, you sure do have your production method dialed in.
    Would love to see how you prepare the real bullet tips/nibs for use.
    Assume you have ready markets for selling those. Congrats.
