I ended up getting one too in the November (now December) batch. I can be patient though. It sounds like they made some improvements to the design as part of this delay.
Here is a relevant excerpt from the email I got:
As you know, we’re on our maiden production run following a successful Kickstarter campaign. It’s been great. We’ve been pretty much ahead of schedule most of the way despite the challenges. But October has proven particularly troublesome.
Already so close to the end, we’re all of a sudden having to deal with a series of issues. Nothing we can’t manage, but the net effect has made it necessary to push the delivery schedule back by a couple of weeks.
The November batch, which includes your order, was originally scheduled to be dispatched between Nov 15 to Nov 30.
It will now be shipped over the period of Nov 27 to Dec 10.
We apologize for this delay. Everyone on the team has worked very hard, determined to get things out on time. In behalf of them, I express my regret over making this announcement.
We are however doing what we can to get things back to where we want to be: on schedule, running smoothly, serene like a zen garden.
As a small consolation, we’d like to reveal some improvements we’ve quietly made on the machine that will soon be arriving at your doorstep:
- Higher vacuum pressure: Now pulling at -88kPa (originally -85kPa).
- Faster switchover from Vacuum 1 to 2. This means even tighter pulls
- Improved heating algorithm. Standard and User profiles perform even better.
- We can also customize profile according to your requirement.
- Max sheet thickness is now 3mm (originally 2mm).
