Ego Spinner – Update 4
Well what can I say, but …I’m sorry!
I promised you a weekly update for your Ego spinner pre-order …and I’ve completely let you down. It’s been at least three weeks since my last update. Shame on me.
Personally, I hate to hear excuses from people – and so I won’t give you any excuses. But what I will do is tell you right now is that I’m going to do a damn sight better from here on in to try and re-gain your trust and confidence.
So, in the next 2 hours (as I type this), I’m going to speak to my machinist about YOUR Ego spinner.
I’m going to talk to him about seeing if we can change two things:
#1 – The way the buttons are held in
#2 – How the bearing is retained
This is currently how I’m planning to retain the buttons (this is a button example from the Air spinner I launched on Kickstarter recently):
There is an ‘o-ring’ around the shaft of the button. This then slips inside the center of the bearing and is held in by friction. I have another idea (that is even simpler) …but I’m not sure if it can be done. I will let you know in the next update! 🙂
Updates from here…
Now, I mentioned a few weeks ago, the updates will get better.
Initially we were waiting for material to arrive (which it has). And now we are just on the edge of getting started on machining that actual spinner itself (whoohoo!).
Once we actually start machining then there will loads of cool stuff to show you. But, so far, it’s just been a few random photos and loads of me yapping (without actually saying anything :-P).
Right, I’ve got to head up to my machinist’s place right now to discuss your Ego spinner.
If you have any questions or comments then please let me know in the comments below.
P.S. You may have noticed, since the last update, the website has changed name from CogentIndustries.com to MagnusX.com. “Magnus” is the new name for my business.
P.P.S. I was waiting to change the name of the website before finalising the “Member’s Area” for you. I will have this setup soon. Thank you for be so patient. I appreciate it! 🙂
