 So there you have it..

We're moving forward and will continue to do so till these are all shipped.

We need some more whiteboard material and some other odds and ends but we're on the case and moving forward.

We're going to try to get these out for the holidays and will keep you up to date as we proceed forward.

End of August Quick Update
over 1 year ago – Tue, Aug 29, 2017 at 05:01:37 PM

The shortest version is that we're behind schedule.

The longer version is that we're in the process of bringing a second CNC online (we had two but one was not up to the task so we've added a 2nd that is... and retired our original)

We've installed a new Drill-press and industrial sander that will allow us to make these screens like you expect, clean, professional and awesome. 

Bit of backtracking on our part but the delay will be worth it.

Sorry for the lapse, we're on it and will push on.

More info once we've made some progress... 1 +- weeks.

Thanks so much for you patience.

 The order of the schedule has not changed but as of right now we have not started on #1... hopefully this week.

I'll be in touch when thats done with pictures and a revised schedule.

2nd week in August..
over 1 year ago – Fri, Jul 21, 2017 at 09:03:28 PM

Is when the first of these should start shipping out. 

There's been a bit of a delay as my 2nd CNC decided to loose its mind and has been in the shop all this time... its fully fixed and I've been assured it'll be on its way back to me in the next couple of weeks... Not much I can do beyond wait for it to arrive.

That being said I've planned in a 2nd schedule in case my 2nd cnc does not arrive in good order and time. I'll switch projects and devote all my machining time to this project until complete if all is not rolling by August 15th.

So first, sorry for the delay.

Second, things are in hand, just moving slower than expected.

Third. Thanks so much for your support and patience.
