Ayasa Makers Newsletter August 2020
In this email you will read about why batch#12 (DC04) is back in stock again. Furthermore you will read about our closing dates and finally a list of our available stock and special stock.
Batch#12 is a batch that was loved by many but sold out all to quickly! This is because we only received half of the roll that we ordered whilst our supplier would hold on to the rest of the roll for when we needed it. However, they lost it and thought they sold it to someone else. Until two months ago when they informed us that they found the rest of the coil! We have raw and nitrided tops and bottoms available as of now.
Notice that the flange size is our new size of 11mm (so that is 1mm wider than the first half of batch#12 and thus the shells that you may already have. See the video below of batch#12 !
HÄNGAUT gathering Austria
Tomorrow we will drive with the whole crew to Austria. This will mean that we will be closed from tomorrow until Monday next week. We will be shipping again on Tuesday. Any orders you place in the coming days will be processed and shipped if possible on Tuesday. Any order placed today before 16:00 hrs (GMT+2) can be packed and shipped today.
We hope to meet you in Austria!!!
Available batches and special stock
Stainless AISI 430 tops and bottoms
Batch#13 raw and nitrided, both tops and bottoms
Batch#12 raw and nitrided, both tops and bottoms
Batch#11 raw and nitrided, both tops and bottoms
Batch#10 double nitrided tops (these shells went through the nitriding process twice, we have tested them and they are well workable, they feel a bit harder and still have more than enough sustain when finished. These are great shells if you are looking for a bit harder material)
Batch#8 nitrided tops and nitrided bottoms
Scrap shells these shells are €20 each, mostly they are nitrided but we also have some raw - price is the same. The batch number of each shell is unknown, mostly they are scrap shells because they have a bad nitriding layer, have scratches or are dent somewhere. Great for making molds or making your shaping mold from them. They are also great for all kinds of testing purposes. Do not use these shells for making instruments or try to tune them! Because of their often bad nitriding layer, the tuning is very difficult or impossible, that is why they are scrap shells! Please let us know for which purpose you intend to use them and we will find the best fitting scrap shells for you!
If you have any questions or wish to make an order, you can reply to this email directly and let us know.
As always… happy hammering!!
