manufacturing update #1
I know you are curious about the progress of the project, so here's what's been going on up to this point.
Directly after the Kickstarter ended, Amazon collected payments from all the backers. They held onto those funds for 14 days (as is their policy) before transferring them to me.
That waiting period was spent finalizing our orders for the 16 separate components and accessories that we need from 7 separate suppliers. Those orders have been placed and production is underway!
We have our first look at some of the new components that were only in the prototype phase when the project was shown to you. Since the project reached our first modified goal, the rail clamp is being manufactured through injection molding. Below are some pictures of the mold being machined, as well as the first plastic parts out of the mold. We added stainless steel screw inserts for added strength. Looks great!
We are still shooting for a June shipment, but a few things have added time to the process. The first of which is the fact that we added new accessories and features as the project progressed. With those additions comes more designing, sourcing, sampling, and manufacturing. We know that the changes were good, so the extra time is more than worth it, and we know you will agree when you receive your Revolve.
I will continue to keep you updated as we move forward. Thanks!
