Default Don't kick me!

The MSPNP middle connectors hit a slight snag... but it won't be long.

I had 4000 of the pins crimped by a manufacturer who claimed to have the correct tooling to do the job. But it turns out they were improvising and they didn't have the proper tool. The pins won't fit in the connectors right.

So

A) I'm fighting with them trying to get them to make good with me on this, as right now I'm out a bunch of money as they still want to charge me for the work, and I've lost materials. But that's not your problem...

and

B) I'm sending out 5000 more pins today to be crimped by a shop with the proper tooling. It's a shop that does these all the time so it won't be a problem this time. It's costing me 8.5x what I was quoted by the first shop, but they'll work this time.

Give us the address to the guys who messed up. We could go do a little negotiating for you. Im sure if a bunch of miata guys show up they will get us our connectors. If not they might get scared that a gay hairdresser convention is in town and make good.
