4/16/2020 Update

These posts are a copy of the emails sent out to all preorder participants. We hold an update every other week on Twitch where you can ask us questions and learn more about our releases.

Hey everyone!

There are a lot of updates this week! Like everyone else, we are dealing with COVID shake-ups as best we can. Because of delays, we are changing things around a bit.

No. 1/60 & 1/65 
  • Machining on both the aluminum and brass parts is done, and everything is being anodized/finished. 
  • As everyone knows things are moving more slowly due to COVID, and we think that even shipping will take longer to get to us.
  • At this point we think that a mid May delivery is likely.
Wrist rests 
  • Order has been placed, it's working it’s way through the queue. We estimate that they will take 2-3 months to complete and ship to us.
Apparel 
  • Shirts and sweaters have been delivered to Clockwise. They will arrange for screen printing and embroidery as soon as possible. We hope to ship these out to everyone by the end of May.
No. 1 
  • Production of samples is still delayed. At this point we don’t know when we will get them, so we aren’t going to give estimates.
No. 3 
  • Samples are nearly complete and will be shipped to us soon
  • We are shifting plans a bit and plan to hold a preorder for the No. 3 instead of an in-stock sale
  • While many have guessed it, we’ll just announce it here: it will be a TKL
  • Plan to sell at least 200 through the preorder
  • We will announce a date once we have samples in hand — hopefully in the next few weeks
No. 2/65 / Machining
  • We spent a lot of time this week preparing ourselves to actually start on No. 2/65’s. There was some additional tooling and fixturing needed to get started and that was delayed due to coronavirus, so we spent some time this week making it ourselves!
  • We’re finishing up the last bit of prep work before we can actually start programming and working on No. 2/65 parts — expect workshop streams and lots of sharing of the process!
  • If you are at all interested in the process, make sure you follow us on twitch, and join our discord channel for announcements.

That's it for now! We hope everyone is staying safe!

Yours,

- Zach & Jorge
