February Update

First Production Run Completion Date

The factory has been hard at work the past couple weeks getting the various components of the Centipede Sawhorses manufactured. Assembly should be starting soon and things are definitely getting exciting over here. While we’ve missed the end of February deadline we estimated back in June of 2013, we haven’t missed it by much. We expect the first run to be completed exactly 9 months to the day after our first crowdfunding campaign started: March 15th. Pretty cool!

As the first run wraps up, we’ll still be doing more testing and inspecting, final packaging and loading, then we have to get the run into our warehouse so we can start shipping them out. With so many variables still outside of our control, we’re not going to estimate an updated in-home delivery date. Believe me, as soon as we know, you’ll know.

 

The Urgency of Ordering Now

We’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes trying to transition from the first production run that will fulfill pre-orders to a regular production regimen that will never see product delivery more than 60 days out anywhere around the globe. We have a lot of irons in some mighty big fires in several countries, but a second production run remains to be scheduled.

To be clear:

If you hope to receive your Centipede Sawhorse before summer, you really do need to order now, because the first production run isn’t going to last long. CLICK HERE to learn more details about ordering a Centipede Sawhorse now.

With any luck, we’ll be able to seamlessly meet demand from this point forward…

 

Free Shipping on Pallet Deliveries

Club Pallet SpecialAny woodworking clubs, general contractors or community groups of any kind that would be able to utilize or distribute Centipede Sawhorses by the pallet can take advantage of what I’m tentatively calling it the Club Pallet program. Get a buying group together to order 15 – 21 Centipede PRO Sawhorse Kits or 32 Centipede Sawhorse Kits at a time and we’ll cover the cost of shipping the pallet right to your door. A mixed pallet would likely have 16 Centipede Sawhorses and 9 or 12 Centipede PRO Sawhorse Kits.

  • This option is open around the globe, however, we’ll ask to split shipping costs outside of the U.S.
  • We currently have enough Centipede PRO Sawhorse Kits to fill 2 pallet orders.
  • All other orders will be subject to start up of the second production run.

No cash will exchange hands until the order is officially placed with the factory, but we’d like to know if there is any demand for this offer.

Seeking Distribution Partnerships

A lot of the distribution partnerships we’re exploring right now were from distributors that have approached us. We expected this would happen and wanted to make sure it is clear that we are indeed open to exploring just about any opportunity to get the Centipede Sawhorses into a store near you…
