Bug in eShapeoko Kit Reservation Form

If you reserved a kit and used certain non-English characters in the Name field, your reservation may have been lost.  Letters with umlauts seem to be fine, the letter Ø definitely causes problems.  I found a workaround, so it works now, but I’m afraid there’s no way to find and resurrect the lost reservations.  I’m not sure where the bug is, in WordPress or somewhere in the email system.

I sent confirmation emails for all reservations made on or before 7 November.  If you made a reservation before that date, and have not yet received a confirmation email, please do it again.  Please note in the comments that it’s a duplicate, and the approximate date of the first reservation, so that I can insert it at the right place in the queue.


The factory have extruded more MakerSlide, so the lengths missing from the store will be back as soon as they cut it and ship it to me.

I have resumed inviting people who have reserved eShapeoko kits to place their orders. I will confirm all other reservations soon (working on it), and give you an updated estimate of when you’ll be able to order.

I have shipped all outstanding non-eShapeoko orders as of Thursday, so we’re up to date on that too.


I just sent the confirmation emails for all outstanding reservations. If you made a reservation and haven’t received an email yet, please let me know. Google (Gmail) occasionally swallows my emails with no explanation.
