manufacturing update #5
I am very happy to report some great news to all of you. After weeks of waiting, customs has finally cleared shipment containing the wheels! The package will leave the UPS warehouse tomorrow, and I will have them in my hands before the week ends. As soon as I get them in assembly will begin, and the first rewards should begin shipping as soon as Tuesday Sept 4th (Monday is a postal holiday).
I will be assembling the kits in phases, meaning I will finish all 400+ units in each step before I move onto the next phase. This will be the most efficient way to get everyone their rewards as soon as possible. This will also ensure good quality control through each step. The production process will go as follows-
phase 1- insert 2 ball bearings into each wheel (~1800)
phase 2- bolt 2 wheels onto each axle (~900)
phase 3- attach 2 axle assemblies onto each base (~900)
phase 4- bag appropriate kits / accessories for each reward (~450)
phase 5- package / weigh (~450)
phase 6- ship you your rewards!
Thank you so much for your patience while we waited to get these parts in! I am very excited to finally be able to move forward with production and assembly, and I will update you all with the progress of the task at hand!
