manufacturing update #3

By now I KNOW that you guys are itching to get your hands on Revolve! We are SO CLOSE to getting them out to you! The aluminum machining is complete, and the parts are on their way over! I have a garage full of friction arms, ball heads, rail clamps, carry cases, bearings, bolts, and knobs! Now we are only waiting on the wheels, and the monopods!

The mold for our particular wheels reached the end of it's life during the process of making our order, which lost us a couple weeks while they machined a new mold. Things are back in line now, and the second the wheels come in we will begin assembling the units and sending them them out the door! 

The wheel factory promised to have them shipped out no later than the 23rd, and we should receive them 4-6 days later.

I would like to apologize to all of you backers for the delay. I hope you can understand that I am forced to rely on my manufacturers to produce on time, and unfortunately their part of the process is completely out of my hands. I feel a huge responsibility to provide all of you with an amazing product, and I truly appreciate your continued patience as I work toward that.

Thanks-

Jeremy

      Can we get some kind of update on what's going on. Looks like you should have the wheels in hand by now (Factory to ship on the 23rd with 4-6 days to arrive).
      If things changes, just let us know. Thanks!

      @robbie & zachary- please send me a message with the updated address

      @felipe- I will be shipping the packages out as I assemble them, so rewards will begin shipping the first day that I get the necessary parts in. I'm not sure how many I will be able to assemble and ship each day, but it shouldn't take me more then a week to get all of the rewards shipped out.

      You are doing a good job providing adequate information with these updates, but when facing a delay, you'd do well to update with a little more frequency. Can we have a weekly update instead of one message every 2-3 weeks? Thanks, and keep up the good work! Can't wait to put it to use.

      Excellent, that is the information i was waiting for, we backed your project trusting you and we continue doing, specially when the delay is not your direct responsability, but there is one thing that i miss, when is the new estimated delivery date?

      Supposing that you will have all the parts in the end of the month, how much time will you need to assemble and ship?.

      Best regards

      Looking forward to playing with mine. If you need a pair extra hands for packing the orders let me know. I'm up in Irvine and wouldn't mind spending an afternoon or two helping out.

      I'm in the same boat as Robbie Cervantes, my lease runs out in two weeks and it doesn't sound like you'll be shipping before then.

      I think I speak for many Kickstarter backers when I say thanks for your hard work. As long as you keep us in the loop, update us every so often and are open and honest like above, I think you can find we can be as patient as is necessary. Keep up the good work.

      I will not be at the address that I originally provided because I will be moving. How can I give you my new address that I will be at to make sure I receive my REVOLVE?
