This is exactly what I've been looking for. Wish I hadn't missed the KS push. Singed up for newsletter and definitely want in on the next batch. Looks like a great product!
I second everything you said!
You don't know the half of it. Having handled and closely examining the prototypes, this is amazing and very well made... and that was just the proto.
I can't wait!
Machining on all parts (approx 5,000) will complete in the morning. I made the drive up today and will be sitting in the plant when they open Thursday. I'll then make the drive back and start bead blasting the 4140 steel wrench heads and plier halves on Friday. It will likely take me all weekend to get the hardening scale blasted off and cleaned for plating. We'll start plating immediately and I'm hoping to get all of the KickStarter sets mailed next week. I will update that group on Friday with photos once I have 100% of the components in my own shop tomorrow. The retail sets will be ready late December.
Best Regards, Gordon
It has been a couple weeks, any updates on the tool kits?
I received an email that my set was mailed today!
You haven't got yours yet.. ?? Thats weird.. wonder why you got yours last?
Hey Guys, I started shipping on Monday. The blasting of the heat-treating scale from the 4,000 wrench heads kicked my butt! What I thought would be a weekend of shaking 20~30 pieces in a round basket while holding the nozzle of the bead blaster turned into a disaster. Regardless of how much I shook and blasted, there were areas on every tool piece that escaped the blasting. Plating will not stick to oil-hardening scale, so it was on to building 3 rotisseries and controlling the blast from every angle, then flip and repeat......all 6 1/2 days of it! I'll be sorting, packing, packaging, and shipping 25-30 every day until my KickStarter supporters are fulfilled. Gordon
Very much looking forward to getting mine :)
Got mine yesterday. We were headed out, so haven't given it much of a look. Initial impressions are mixed. It's smaller than I expected, that's good. The handles the wrench heads fit into are larger than I expected, not sure about that. Overall, it's an impressive kit. Lots of stuff packed very well in a very small package. It'll take me a while to figure out all the moving parts.
The more I look at this, the better I like it.
You need some elves. I hear they are currently out of work...
Mine is on the way!!!
Got my kit today! Definitely look and feel very nice and highly compact.
The only thing I see that is odd is the pliers are smooth, which might make them slightly less versatile, but I could also be wrong.
Obviously I haven't used them for anything yet, but I will start using them to work on my bikes in the garage very soon, and I'll give a little update later.
Just found this and missed the KS. Hope it becomes available on the site soon. Good luck with everything.
I’m glad to hear some inmates are getting their sets. I pledged on KS on July 28, and followed a handful for “official” announcements from Gordon, the last one being in November. Waiting on an orange case, I hope not too much longer. With the wait, my expectations for a truly killer tool pact have grown. Here’s hoping Gordon deliveries the goods.
