Graham. I just hope you have got a big chimney so Santa can fit those Brayton castings down it.

Luckily lengths of barstock drop straight down mine ;)

I think the Brayton castings will be a little late for Father Christmas this year Jason but I received an early Christmas delivery yesterday.

I thought your friend already had an X-type or are some of those "top secret" castings that Graham mentioned elsewhere last week destined for you?

I'm afraid I'm totally not up to speed with the situation - is Alyn Foundry a functioning business again, or is this just a few casting sets being made for a few people? I understood that Alyn Foundry had stopped trading. Apologies if I have that completely wrong, I've only observed in a casual manner, just wondered what the situation is. All this talk of more castings coming is just very interesting.

Hi Stuart.

This has been my passion for 30+ years, whilst we effectively ceased trading in 2007/8 Iíve been pottering off and on ever since.

A new and definitely adept foundry has been found so Iíve been busy getting some decent replacement parts for the workshop.

I think the Brayton Ready-Motor might be the last in my series of ď pioneer ď engines but the pottering will definitely continue.

Cheers Graham.

Best wishes, for a fast and good recovery - though I'm aware that these things take time and fustration sometimes are hard to avoid.
