I would prefer to have it stamped, even if it takes extra time/cost. But will be happy with whatever. All good things take time.

Bill, thanks for the update. Not stamped is OK with me too as it will go in a particular place in the tool box, so no problem.
Family takes precedence.

Thanks for all the support guys, but it obviously sounds like stamped is the preference.

I will make this happen.

Update,

All of the sockets are now broached(most critical part). I am in the process of drilling the inside for clearance on the gav housing tube as well as turning and stamping the end of the barrel.

Hopefully things will proceed without any hitches!!

Ok Guys,

All of the sockets have been turned and bored for the gav housing. Obviously as stated last update they are all broached for the 13/32 fit.

We are now in the process of stamping them which is very time consuming as you can probably imagine since we don't have a fancy fixture to just crank them out.

The good part is we have the next 5 weeks off from motorcycle flat track racing, so my youngest son and I should be able to make a lot of progress with the stamping and last step oil quench and temper.

This process has proven to be very time consuming. Well beyond what I originally thought. And I doubt I will make another run of these for that reason.

In any event I am hoping we can finish these things up and start shipping within the next 5 weeks.

Hope all is well with everyone, and I will continue to update over the next couple of weeks.

Bill

Everyone is still on the list. And only those who are on the list will receive the sockets in the quantity they expressed interest in. I will see to it that everyone gets what they have requested throughout this entire painstaking venture, lol.

I have a complete list of everyone committed for the sockets. You have all been notified via pm or email that you have been placed on the list, so do not worry, you will in fact receive a socket.

I was just teasing Bill. I know they will be done when they are done.

Hi guys,

Still working on these things every chance we get. Guess I underestimated how much time doing 150 of these things would actually take with everything that is involved.

We do have some completed and are currently polishing and stamping the rest in order to do the final heat treat and temper.

We have found we will need to rebroach a number of the sockets for proper fit due to minor inconsistencies with the reproduction gav housings.

In any event, we are still working diligently on this project, so please bear with me.

Bill
