Battery Power and Printing Bobbins
I created another video for everyone this week. This video covers options on how to make the EEW Mini truly travel friendly by powering it with a battery.
I'm also really happy to announce that I'm giving away the 3d files needed to print your own bobbins for the EEW Mini. If you (or a friend) have a 3d printer then you can use these files to make your own bobbins for the Mini. On my 3d printer making one bobbin took about 2 hours. I hope people find them useful. While these are functional, if anyone out there wants to make a prettier bobbin feel free to send me an updated 3d file and I can share it with the community in future updates.
I'm starting to talk with my part suppliers in an attempt to finalize as many of the parts early as I can. This should help get production of the Mini started early, which will be important since I want to try and ship to all my backers by the June timeframe. One note about how shipping works. I will be asking for people's mailing addresses via a survey just before I start shipping. This will help reduce the number of people who have an address change before I ship the Mini to them. Then I will ship to backers in the order people backed this project. So if you're an early backer you should be receiving your Mini before June. I don't yet have a more accurate estimate on shipping dates for backers.
Thanks for all your support!
