News for Batch Five

Batch Five of eShapeOko kits is moving along, slowly.  We have all the parts, and we’re packaging them.  The first few Batch Five kits will leave tomorrow, and the rest early next week.

I changed the packaging method.  Instead of putting each type of part in its own little zip bag, I divided them, roughly, into one bag per assembly step.  That means fewer bags, less time for me to pack them, much easier to apply upgrades to the kits (NEMA23 motors on X, Y and even Z, longer rails, open end plates… all coming up soon in the store), and easier for you to find the parts when building the machine.  Where parts are very similar (for instance, the M5 Form A and Form B washers), I’ve put one of them in a separate bag.

The kits that ship this week are still packed in the old style, though.
