I've been shuffling projects around in the shop and its time to shuffle this one to the top.
The wood is in-house, the tooling is ready the programs are written.
Time to begin making some chips!
There are 64 backers on this campaign and so I'm going to try something a little different.
I'm going to break out each backer into their own scheduled window and post that schedule here...
This will allow me to handle all the custom aspects of each pledge for each backer easily and at one time. It also means that you'll all know when to expect your Master Screens.
I'll be back in a few days with a schedule and timeline on who's going first and the order of completion.
Thanks for being patient with me on this folks. Structure is almost here.
One last thing of note.
If you have engraving as part of your pledge I need you to send me your art again. I had it all stored in e-mail and suffered a computer crash that lost most of it... so... I need it again.
If you miss this, I'll be in touch when I get to your order, but the more I've got in advance the faster I can go.
Send your art to: firstname.lastname@example.org and include notes on placement or if we should talk in person. (I'm using my trusty paper notebook for my notes this time around and backing up my mail off-server... so fool me once... :)

Just a quick look at the new clamping systems on the Axiom CNC and the Romaxx running side by side.

I'm almost done buying wood for this campaign and rounding up all the tooling needed.
I'm converting programs from one CNC system to another and finalizing plans on how to deliver these screens to you...
In the mean time as part of this process I just finished my review and notes on my beta system I used in this campaign...
I've gotten all i need from it and have put it up for sale as an as-is beta product in my etsy.com store here:
This is available to the general public and as its both not 100% complete or the final versions of the included components and as there's only 1 set like this its being made available for anyone who wants to finish off the customization of the system themselves (details in listing) or wants another set for a near and dear Gamemaster or friend who might have missed out.
I'll be listing the older prototype versions in the next few days so other revisions will show up... each less finiished and earlier in the development process than the last.
At any rate, these are pieces I did before and during the campaign, no work has started yet on production pieces and no production pieces will be sold till all of you have yours.
Thanks again everyone!

Was hoisted onto its base and installed yesterday.
Rand some test cuts and am now in full swing making parts.
Initiative markers are cut into rough cubes and are ready to begin drilling and magneting..
A quick video of the new machine in action.
Its faster, more accurate and easier to use than my Romaxx... which is not to knock the Romaxx.. .its made more than 2000 parts without a serious problem...so... here's hoping this new machine is even better.
Thanks for your support everyone.
You've all made this possible.
Welcome to April!

Only four holdouts remain:
One backer has contested their Kickstarter payment after answering their survey and Kickstarter has removed their pledge funds from my account and informed me I no longer have any obligation to this backer.. so... Ok then. No previous contact from either the backer or Kickstarter, but the money has been removed.. so that's that. Backer, you know who you are, you're money is back with you, and you're off the to-do list. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you directly first, but there you go.
For everyone else!
Now that those things are out of the way here's what's going on.
1. The new Axiom CNC arrives next Tuesday. Setup will take place Tuesday - Thursday with all needed adjustments and settings being looked at for production.
2. After the machine is setup I'll began writing the production programs for all your wonderful panels. 1-2 weeks.
3. Towards the end of April production begins.
I'm on the fence as to how to handle production, I can make all the rewards and then ship them all at the same time, or I can make each order completely and ship it out as its finished...
Any thoughts on this?
In the mean time I've installed a new BandSaw and Cyclone Dust collector from Laguna Tools... Both of which were very much needed.
Impossible to re-cut without a bandsaw and there's no price worth bad air quality...
I'll have some more pictures of the new CNC an some live running video as well when we get going.
Thanks to all of you for your patience and support.
