"I made a jig and named her Charlotte"

Jig named Charlotte

The EZ Miser launch has been quite an experience for us, very different from our original launch of the Avian Aqua Miser.  In December 2008, we barely had a web presence, and we sold one or two waterers per week for the first little while.  That gave Mark plenty of time to work the kinks out of mass production.

Testing the EZ Miser

In contrast, this time around, I spent all day Monday at the computer, just fielding emails, and Mark's working as fast as he can building EZ Misers.  That's why I'm posting instead of Mark this afternoon --- his brain power is just about used up from days of tweaking and figuring things out.  (Plus, he's at the post office mailing two ATV-loads of EZ Misers.)

Loading up the ATV

I suspect Mark will have all of his jigs (Charlotte and sisters) up and running in a week or so, at which point he'll be able to stop testing each waterer and start delegating more of the workload.  We appreciate all the business since it will allow us to keep Kayla employed all winter!
