I think he's more "one of the guys that want to see the final product before they buy it blindly".
Which is a legit request from a customer, regardless of the product he's buying.


Nobody should buy a unseen product...thats my opinion as well.

But its a little to early to order, I just wanted to announce the project.

We are going to build the first prototyp over christmas.....we wanted to do a Karate Champ, but since we have the tempest almost finished you guys can choose with cabinet you want to see, the Karate Champ or the Tempest, but I am almost sure it will be the Tempest  Grin

As for the statement a CAD-File is not the same as building the cabinet, it IS the same. You create different parts and build them together. Trust me, we do it long enough to know what we do.

I told, my partner produces prototypes for all sorts of industries, even for BMW. If you still think a wooden cabinet will challange such a company I wont argue, just wait for the pictures  Grin

Can you maybe post a picture when you start (panel of wood on cnc) and then when you finish (complete wooden cabinet). That way you can show everyone it only takes a couple of hours to create the cabinet.

Sir, no problem. We are going to show everything. It would'nt be possible to work much longer on the sodden cabinet itself for commercial production, they have many other projects that bring a lot more money so there is no chance to spend some days only for the empty shell. Smiley

I got word via their FB page that the project got cancelled, both to one of the two partners being scared away by initial feedback, and the fact that the other guy didn't want to cope with the whole workload himself. So no new repro cabs, it seems.

The whole project was a total mess without any sense from the first word. Tongue

This tread needs to have some clear marking in the beginning saying it's cancelled. I was starting to get excited. Sad

even the cab was not what I would have chosen to start with.

Nope, it was not.

I told my partner that I am not going to advertize it in the forums as the members cost me the last nerv.

All that useless postings now....it was a mess from the beginning and all that.....

Who have so much insight to say that and who knows about such a business??? To have some cabs and to restore them got nothing to do with mass production...and I repeat saying that from the beginning, so please, leave me alone with your opinion.

It was planned from the beginning from the start that I draw the cabinets and my partner advertize them, since he did not do anything I told him I am out but I still have and make drawings. I still can offer small quantities of cabinets like for Nilfisk or other guys that was polite from the start.

I make enough money not to depend on that project, it was a hobby project for him and me...but not so much fun that I make everything alone.

The Karate Champ is ready and the first cabinet for my friend will be done soon, and in the next time I am going to finish the Tempest.
Others will follow and I will make some for the polite people in the forum.
