Status

A great many people have been asking for a status update over the last couple of months. The project to revive the PnP machine quite literary fell asleep and nothing much happened for a year. However, motivation returned and the machine is now almost ready to use. All mechanical parts underwent maintenance and are in perfect working order. We're still looking for a suitable supply of pressured air for first trials and calibration is also still an open point.

Here's a quick overview of what's going to happen over the next couple of weeks:
