About

Risks and challenges

This isn't a coffee press or a ceramic pen. It's a specialized set of tools for a subset of a niche sport... so the biggest risk is actually not achieving the funding goal.

I've spent a good portion of the last couple of years finalizing designs, sourcing suppliers and manufacturers, and collecting estimates. But this is my first manufacturing project and my first project on Kickstarter. While I've done my best to anticipate and mitigate issues, there will be bumps along the way. But I'll will be open and transparent with backers as this project progresses.

QUALITY

I'm not out to squeeze every cent of profitability from this project. These are tools that I will be using myself — and I have pretty high expectations. I'll be working closely with my manufacturers to make sure Tuning Forks are something I'll be proud for you to use.

SCHEDULE

This one seems to be the toughest for projects to nail. Over the past 4 years I've done a lot of work to prep Tuning Forks for manufacturing, but it might not be perfect out of the gate. I've included a good amount of padding in the schedule for manufacturing, testing, and revisions if necessary. But again, I won't know what I don't know until I get the first set in my hands.
