We are getting close. Last word i had from Chris was that i was going to need more cash for the CNC operator.

I think Baffles are done, with sides underway. I have almost finished clearing the space i need to pack them.

And the lastest news is that Chris & Tak got the 1st of the sides ut this weekend. I am scheduled to go in over the next week and help sort and pre-prep for packaging. Then they will start trickling out. Each one will take sometime to box up, I hope to get 3 or 4 sets out a week.

I have the 1st 3 sets here to finish shipping prep, and sufficient at the shop to fill all current orders. Chris has a pic of the 1st set in the inner box.

Chris did a couple tricks on these that are quite elegant, and him & Tak did their best to grain match the baffles and (seperately) grain match the sides.

We'll be doing a mock assembly with pictures next week.

I blasted together an earlier version of these over the weekend (without the simple "tricks" Dave mentioned) - I trust builders will find them a relatively easy assembly.

The 1st flat-pak went out today -- behind expectations but a start. I will be working to catch up. Chris & i went thru and sorted and prepared sets today. A few more baffles need to be made (to accomodate the actual driver distribution as opposed to our inital guess).

Here with Bonita (the pro) and Tiffany (the trainee)

Click the image to open in full size.

Trivia: Each flat-pak eats up about 2 1/2 rolls of packing tape.

More: If we made these with all 18mm they would exceed the max dimension allowed.
