Revisions and Changes

                                                                         Important!

The date in a drawing's title block will not match the date it is posted to the website. The date on the drawing is the date the change was started. The date posted to the website is the completion date. There are several reasons why some revisions take longer to complete. These include the attachment of more items needing revision, delays for testing, waiting on parts etc.
