Aluminum Construction Kit

This is a fairly short blog post today... (and, truthfully, it's going to be a blatant "sales pitch" :-P)

Last week I showed you an aluminum construction kit.

I also showed you some of the things I had made with it. These things here if you recall:

​Well, quietly in the background, I've been developing the project a little more. It's quite different making these compared to the titanium products we typically make.

The aluminum is more forgiving in terms of machining and surface finishing. But, there are a lot more components ...and so more attention has to be paid to the process of making them (otherwise the cost to produce them gets really high).

​I've put together a selection of parts to make a few of these kits ...and I'm hoping to make a few more kits over this coming weekend.

Long story short:

I have some for sale right now (and they will ship next week ...around 4 or 5th of September as I type this).

    I like that idea a lot! But it’s also a lot of money! The kid in me says I really want it. The adult provides $299 is just too much money for a gimmick. Although I would like to have it! Magnus, as a loyal customer i need a discount! 😜😘

    It’s great Magnus, I love it, but in all honesty I can’t justify it …

    I love this idea so much, but it just seems totally impractical to have these machined from billet aluminum. If I the money right now, I’d buy them just to be in early and have the most beautiful and over-build option possible, but for these to be a real viable option for the use cases that you’re sugessting, I think they need to be 1/3 or 1/4 the current price. I totally understand that they need to be made this way if only in smaller batches, but it’s just too cost prohibitive. I also think that there is a middle-ground when it comes to strength. All of the examples that you showed (save maybe the slingshot) could easily have been built with nylon or some type of cast, high-strengh polymer components. If ever there was something that you might want to crowd fund and then out-source the manufacturing of, I think this is it.

    I understand your window of inception 2 distribution is really tight and you have to maximize it you get one chance because it’s quickly imitated and you’re very flattered by one third of the Earth’s population that knows you’re very talented at what you do and is quick to you know anyway yeah hopefully this is a great distraction for something else please pardon my lack of punctuation I’m using a voice recognition system versus an actual physical keyboard peace out.
    Pronounced like “magnificent’ + “Y” sound from the “Ti” naturally.
