MegaRail Family

Given the interest I received for the MegaRail 80 and MegaRail Z, I decided to add a few more members to the family of profiles.

MegaRail FamilyShown from left to right are MegaRail 320 (only partially visible), MegaRail 160, MegaRail 80, MakerSlide (shown for scale), MegaRail 40, MegaRail 20 and MegaRail 10.  For simplicity, except for MakerSlide, all profiles are scaled versions of each other.  For instance, MegaRail 80 has screw ports that take self-tapping M6 screws; MegaRail 10 takes self-tapping M0.75 screws.  MegaRail 80 weighs about 3.3 kg per metre, MegaRail 320 weighs about 53 kg per metre and is available in 2,400 mm, 4,000 mm, 6,000 mm and 8,000 mm lengths (same as MegaRail 80, only scaled up, for simplicity).

 

eShapeoko Update

Long story short, the 20×40 extrusion did not arrive on time, but, after a very long night, we managed to pack most eShapeoko kits and get them ready for the couriers. I have arranged for someone to be there for the couriers to collect the packages.

If you ordered a size smaller than 1000×1500, your kit is ready and will be collected by UPS, TNT or ParcelForce on Tuesday. I’ll email all of you tracking numbers soon.

If you ordered 1000×1500, I managed to pack only some of those before we had to leave for the airport.

I have just updated the status of the orders in the store. If you got email and your order status is now Complete, your kit will ship on Tuesday. If your order is still Processing, then we’ll ship your kit after we return in two weeks. I’ll email the few people affected to let them know, and to apologize.

eShapeoko Update

Everyone who has reserved a kit should have received an invitation email.  If you made a reservation and did not receive anything, please let me know (comment here, or use the store “Contact Us” form).

Please continue to use the reservation form while we fulfill these orders.  Once we’re done shipping the outstanding orders, the kits will be available from stock.

MakerSlide and NEMA 23 Update

MakerSlide

Just spoke to the factory.  I am not happy.  They have not finished cutting our order.  They still have to do the 250 mm lengths and one other length.  They think they’ll be done by noon tomorrow, and they’ll call after that to arrange delivery.

NEMA 23 Motors

The shipping company have revised their invoice and I have paid it.  They will let me know the delivery date once they go through customs.

MakerSlide and NEMA 23 Update

MakerSlide

I just spoke to the fabricator. They have finished cutting our MakerSlide, so all that’s left is to arrange delivery. But they work short days on Fridays, and the person who can do that has already gone home. So, next week!

NEMA 23 Motors

The ship is in port and they’re unloading the containers. I got an incorrect invoice for customs charges, so I’ve asked them to amend it. That should not cause a delay, though. They expect to deliver the motors to us on Thursday.
