    Hey folks, I haven't heard anything from A-L on expected shipment dates. Typically, they don't give a heads-up before completion but, just out of the blue, start sending out tracking emails. Since this Thursday is the end of week 14, I'll check in with them today to see if they can update.

    50% longer production time, sigh. Since this is a dramatically different deal than what group members were buying into, I will buy out any members who are not willing to wait until mid-June. Please PM me if you want out.

    So sorry about this guys,

    No, it crushed the fingers, I feel bad for the guy, he has been running the machine for over a year, when you watch the video it was just him not watching where his fingers were at..
