From the workshop: bespoke ratchet wheels progres

In two words: all good. Thanks to all rebelde owners who took up the offer - you guys are keeping us busy!

Here is a photo of yet another in-house made fixture. Purpose: to hold the batch of ratchet wheels during milling and engraving procedure.

And below: a few wheels ready for installation. Your part comes with it's own drawing, signed by Josh and Andrew. Kind of 'a thank you' note that you can add to your rebelde set.

One thing we have underestimated is the amount of admin work involved in the ratchet wheel project - it takes dozen of emails to sort out initials, invoicing, payment processing and shipping for each wheel. Good news is that we now have a real time 'spreadsheet interaction' between the city office and our Brookvale workshop so either side can see where we are up to. Learning heaps about efficient internal communication.
