First samples from production tooling received!

Hi everyone,

We received the first samples made from the production tooling.  Overall they turned out very good.  The colors and finish look good.

 The fit and function are good but there are a few minor improvements that need to be made. I am waiting to hear back from the tool shop so that I know how it will affect the shipping schedule. Since they need to make the tooling improvements, run new samples and then run production parts it will probably push back the shipping schedule somewhat. Once I have a better handle on the schedule I will send another update but I suspect that shipping the rewards will be delayed until April :( I think it is well worth spending the extra time up front and making sure product meets everyone's expectations.

Hope everyone is staying warm this winter!

Best regards,

Jerry

      They'll be worth the wait. Chin up...feet forward. All part of the manufacturing process.

      Thanks Jerry for the honest update. I agree with you that quality is key and if it pushes the project back a bit then so be it.
