Because of all the delays, I wanted to avoid as much as possible updates for the status on when the lathe was supposed to arrive, and what happened, and why it’s been delayed. Suffice to say, it’s finally here! Over the next week, I will be getting the machine setup, and will start to document my […]
Though Forges are all out of stock, the pre-orders are shipping! All is going well, but tiring process. The good news for a few waiting is that I’ve had a couple drop off, so some units will be available. I will contact you once I have sent out all pending orders.
As many of you may know (I have sent out to all who have pre-ordered Forges), Forges have been delayed due to a problem that needs correction. Some of the parts will be sent back to repair. I’m estimating everything to be solved around the end of May. We have a solution, so this is […]
For any that are not signed up for notifications on production status, just want to update that the custom parts for this coming round will be coming on Tuesday! There are only 2-3 units left out of the 50 being made. Once built they will be available to purchase directly. I also have the Kinu […]
After much experimentation, frustration, thought, testing and retesting, I have finally decided on the final method to seal the main tube to the top plate. Many failed experiments were tested before shipping, but the most reliable method at the time was used. The first 10 units had an o-ring in the channel, this worked on […]
Last of the pre-order queue went out today! You should have all gotten a tracking number, if not please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a link. New orders won’t have a queue to wait in, but could be up to a week of build time depending on my schedule and other orders […]
Forges are shipping out daily. They are still on pre-order status until I have fully caught up on all pre-orders. As of today, 15 units have shipped with another 37 to go. I’m hoping by the 1st or so to have caught up on all pre-orders. Thank you all for your patience.
Exciting time! I have just received the parts today. Build time will be a little longer than I had hoped, there is a single burr still left on the lower rings that prevents perfect threading, so I need to just add the step of removing that. This shouldn’t add much time, but it is something […]
I had a custom run of tubing made, black and double thickness of what is available off-the-shelf. This should give better insulation, as well as a very sure grip when locking the basket in. Will be installed a little lower on the production units, the scrap tubing I had to test fitting was a little […]
We are fully sold out of version 2 unit! We will have stock of our new v2.1 units in around January 2016. Would like to thank all our customers for making it happen. In the future small refinements are planned for the next production run, but overall the core of the device will remain very […]
