    Yeeeaaa, I'm not expecting much. I was most curious about the Oct. 2018 delivery deadline that was stated on the Kickstarter page. Without a machine, tooling or a shop I was wondering how that deadline was gonna happen. I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass and I wish the original poster the best of luck I just have a hard time with these sorts of projects because it perpetuates the misconceptions that manufacturing is quick, easy and cheap. I, along with many others here I imagine, tend to spend quite a lot of time with clients explaining the nuances of manufacturing and their impact on timeframes/cost/etc. and so these types of claims make me cringe a bit.

    I posted an update on the Kickstarter page a week ago. My original estimate was to have the machine on the floor by the end of July or early August. Machining the aluminum parts won't actually take that long, logistics will be the tedious part.
