Hmmm, yes, this HAS been a problem in the past with some of the US-made
castings (I believe it was particularly bad when Simtac were doing the
casting before GeoHex changed supplier, and some old stock of that
may still be on sale). This certainly isn't a "GZG thing", we pride
ourselves on the quality of our castings (at least the ones we do here
the UK, which are the only ones I get to see or have direct control
and I am not happy with the apparent problems with some of the US
in the past. Rest assured that whatever happens to the US license in the
long run, we shall be tightening up on this considerably and I shall be
trying to monitor the quality as closely as I can (given the big pond in
between us!).
