Hi Jim,

I know it must be somehow tedious for you but I'll come back on the shipping. Last time you wrote it should be happen by the end of winter. I don't know for how long it's going on at your place but here everything starts to bloom. Is any forecast possible at the moment? I guess the worldwide situation is affecting the process too.

Please let me reply to this more thoroughly tomorrow. I've already been recently compiling the contents of a public message here to update on impacts from COVID-19 but also other things.

On March 21, a Saturday, the governor shut down most business operations in the state of NY from there on forward (the situation really is that bad in new york and is exponentially worsening). Getting communication from 9-5 Mon-Friday type places, some of our third party manufacturers, has been difficult especially since places froze on a saturday. Yes this has direct impact now and there's nothing we can do to avoid it. The Moto Modular workshop is officially off limits for logging work hours as well, along with all other workshops in the building. Virtually everyone in the state is forced to work from home for the time being, no matter what kind of work they do. No idea how long this will last.

This isn't coming to a halt though. After the new reality in New York unfolded to the public about a week ago, I've worked on adapting several major TE-2 segments to manufacturing that we can perform in house instead of needing third parties. As of yesterday this is complete. And as of today, the equipment has all been lined up and is either being set up or is on its way in transit. Gearing up to crank from the home shop and transfer the rigs to the workshop when it opens back up.

More tomorrow and stay safe/home.

Take your time, my intention was not to force more stress on you in this situation I'm just curious how it is for you to work know. I'm at similar position with my workshop and the struggle is real.

Did this bloody thing set back the pcb timeline? Dying to see one unit in action getting the treatment!

I wonder if one can get this wonderful machine optimized for banana gear, or the parts to build one?

Comparing those cheeks to the prototype... Not as steep an angle. Quite different.

I'd also like a angled cheek like in the prototype, maybe if its not possible from Jims end we can get some made at a later date when this covid bullshit has passed into a fading bad memory :(

Not as steep because they are flat! That is the flat version which is the exact same shape but without the propping angle material.
Angled version is the same as you see on the main website www.motomodular.com but will be pictured fresh on IG soon. Some other versions exist too, including one or two vertical versions, which might not be part of initial productions but honestly it depends on how long covid shutdowns last. There is a portable handle already prototyped by the metal shop as well, to connect to one of the vertical versions.
I assume many will want the angle one first anyways, but, maybe once you all have pics to compare soon, we could have have another go at taking tally for end designs. Now that I’ve brought the wood and plastic and small aluminum work in house, it sets us up to be able to quickly whip up a custom count for each design.

Hello.
Is it a Friday?
Today is my 40th birthday.
Acrylic pieces have been turning out as well as hoped. Quantity runs of wood and plastics soon.
More pics on IG as well.
Looking forward to the workshop when it opens.
Rock and roll to the mothership.
Thank you for the faith and partnership.

Happy Birthday!

I live in NYC and things don't seem to be getting much better day to day, how will this affect the release schedule? Are we talking 2021 now?
