Steve,last April , 2022 I ordered a new P-W to replace my 30 yr old machine. I was told one year wait. Talked to them yesterday and was told they are still working on orders from Dec of 2021, so my order might be ready in another 4 or 5 months. So the year wait has turned into year and a quarter to perhaps year and a half.
By then, when they call, I might be ready to hang it up with component prices esp powder still going up-we'll see.
If I don't take it, it will go to the next name on their wait list.
Keep making repairs to the old one and it keeps making good shells.
