Getting behind on the posts

Days 3 & 4 of the 6 day shift cycle. Shift midday till 8:00 pm
Press - P35
Tiles made: Rives a Rabat Gauche & Droite
Dry Tiles unstacked: Lots

Aargh time zooms by.
These tiles are easy to make. But we had a bit of trouble regulating the chassis to take the tiles. When you start there is a chassis waiting. You place the tile, kick the pedal, the chassis advance, you place the tile, kick the pedal etc.
After 8 tiles the claie of 8 chassis scoots off to the ascenseur.
But after about 10 minutes it shoots off one chassis too early! So you have to load 1 tile in advance and hold off kicking the pedal. No big deal, until 10 minutes later it shoots off two xhassis too early. So you load 2 tiles in advance, hold off kicking the pedal and then play catch-up because the next claie is now 2 chassis too far back. And then 10 minutes later . . .

there was a new interim youngster joined us for a day. Shame. he was completely lost. You forget what it's like your first day, the tiles all look the same.
