AO received the first shipment of PP-FP0172 from Weiser on the on the 24th of May in accordance with the Rev IR instructions which I am told did not have the masking callouts which are derived from the Quiver Chassis design. From what I've seen, none of the interior masking (3 areas) were done, nor was the two 8mm diameter masking locations on the back PEM nuts where the power connection goes. Given that these instructions may not have been communicated prior to their production run, and that I was told that these units were "Identical to Taz 6 but with different silkscreen" at the time I received them, this issue was not immediately noticed. Some units were released for Alpha builds on May 24th and no feedback was given concerning this issue. We currently have 221 on hand according to Odoo(I can only confirm the 143 currently in QC however). 94 have been inspected and are at the Rockies location, I am unsure if any adjustments have been made for early builds. If they require the masking callouts that the new drawings have(PP-FP0172, PP-FP0163), then these units will need to be recalled back to Aleph Mountain. Given that this is a production quantity of units(221), if it is necessary for them to be reworked I would advise using either Epocs, PMM, or Weiser to sand off the powder coat in the specified areas.
PMM has already done reworks like this before, so they would probably be the quickest option.
- Is rework necessary?
- Moving to get the reworks done.
