About this project
Risks and challenges
Materials: Orion is made entirely of aluminum and a potential issue could be the price of aluminum at the moment of placing the order. The price could be higher. However, the factory that I'm working with has enough aluminum on hand to produce over 2000 units at this time. Therefore, it's unlikely the price will be effected. If the project exceeds 2000 units I've been assured by the manufacturer that the price per unit will not change.
Orion will be manufactured in the USA from a local factory in San Diego. All CNC machining will done at this factory. The turnaround time for 500 units is one week. The parts will then be sent to another local company to be anodized. Once that process is complete each part will have "Orion" laser etched onto it as well as serial numbers on the limited edition versions.

All units will then be shipped to me. Once I receive them I will add the rubber orings, magnets, package them and ship them.
