We’ve now shipped all the Kickstarter machines! (including the stray KS orders)
If you don’t already have yours, then it’s likely en-route. Everyone should have their tracking numbers to see how the shipment of their LongMill is progressing.
With the Kickstarters machines shipped, the website orders are next in line. We spent the end of December and start of January shipping as many website orders as we could before having to go back to baseline assembly of the inventory. That means that as of today, Jan 16, we’ve shipped all website orders up to order #16147 and will be shipping #16199 and some older orders that we were requested to hold in the next day. Otherwise, there won’t be any more machines shipped out until the baseline inventory is built back up.
What does this mean? It means that from order #16244 onward we need to work on packing more bags of hardware, packing more boxes of rails and lead screws, assembling more control boxes, etc. This process takes a while which is why we estimated that the remaining machines wouldn’t be shipping out until March. We’ve done all this packing before and there will be some tweaks we’ll be applying here and there from what we learned doing it the last time around.
In the meantime, we’ll make sure you guys are all informed on our progress so that you can get an idea of when the machines will start to ship again from our office in good 'ol Waterloo
