Indeed and as to the borax they seem just about as responsive to the complaints as SPectrum was over the sys96. I'm sure the crucibles will be blamed pretty soon.

It takes railhead, ports hopefully, cheap labor, inexpensive fuel, excellent material prices, a decent chemist, lots of capital. The dollar has dropped almost 15% against the Euro since Trump took Office. That will make Cristalica a good deal more expensive as well.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
