* Most of your orders have shipped, see below for details
Finally, we mailed out all of the orders! All that we could – we sold out of some stuff, which is a good problem, sort of. Not for you. Some of you have to wait a little while longer. We sold out of Large Tesla Shirts, Medium Hats, and ran out of Trammels for the early birds. All of the these are ordered and/or in the works and we expect to be getting/printing/stitching/assembling and mailing out the last of what’s waiting in a week or so. Thank you all for giving us these kinds of problems.
Speaking of Trammels… Some 70 or so of you have received/will receive a big chunk of oak with your order. You had no idea – and neither did we. When I made the decision to send these out as a gift, I had estimated around 40 might be reasonable. Y’all did way better than that. There were officially 58 orders that came in before the deadline, and a handful of slightly late-comers had requested or were chosen to get one. What is that thing?
It is a thing. A thingy. A thing-a-ma-bob. Doohickey. Whatchamacallit. And a whole lot of you got one. So what do you do with it? You just make circles. Well… ellipses. It traces an oval, not a circle. A couple times around and you’ll get the hang of it. If it locks up on you in a couple years – just rub a bit of candle wax in the dovetail groove, it’ll slick right up. Don’t use anything else, trust me. A friend of mine put Vaseline in his, baaaaad. Petroleum and wood don’t play nice.
A few folks posted pics of their IdeaMerch, we thought it would be nice to share:
