Thank you Hans. The day we had that first discussion I knew I made a mistake  [crying] We all learn from our mistakes  [embarassed]

Tom, many thanks for the videos showing the TSO products in use.  Very helpful for estimating  the value to be obtained for the price.  (Looks to be well worth it for me, but to each his own.)

Also, thanks for the tip about running the hose and power cord over your arm—obvious to me only after I saw you doing it!

Is the early adopter sale over? I could not figure out how to order it on the website.

The TPG system hasn't been released yet. From the limited information we have, it looks like the early adopter sets have a preliminary release date middle to end of March.


Hans/Eric have said that they tried to get early-release models out, but were over ambitious with their time-frame for delivery.


It is likely that whilst we will have an early release, it won't be that far ahead of the actual release.

The drill jig needed to add the tapped holes to my early-model GRS arrived today so I guess that I can do the modification while I wait.

Well March 15th is here, and unless my memory fails me, the dates now show April 15 for the early adopter "TPG-30 R" set, and May 1 for the "TPG 20 & 30" Right Hand, Left Hand, and combo sets.  Guess I'll be holding onto my money a little longer.

of all things, cosmetic appearance problems with production have thrown us unexpected curveballs and blown our expectation to start shipping today, March 15.
Rest assured that completing the required process changes is a high priority for everyone involved on our team. We will have an update on availability as soon as we have qualified parts.

Saaaay...those, "seconds", shall we call them...they wouldn't be eventually available at a discounted rate, would they? Obviously their usability depends on the fault, be it blotchy anodizing, visible machining marks, illegible scale etching, or whatever else.

In the meantime, I went ahead and got a GRS ordered, and am twiddling my thumbs to nubs waiting for that March 25th expected ship date to arrive.

I expect that when they release the units for pre-order that they will post here?
Or should I be religiously checking the website?

@dr.r.lam I was thinking the same thing. So I just check religiously everyday as part of my morning routine :)> I'm sure the guys at TSO will let us know as well. Cheers

@Mario Turcot - @dr.r.lam - @jasen  and @lerabotperche -  finally specific dates: Expect a TSO INSIDER shipping announcement for the TPG-30  two weeks from now – on May  4th and for the TPG-50 a week later  - on May 11th with each date followed by production shipments. FOG posts to this effect will appear right after the TSO INSIDER has gone out.

Meanwhile you’ll notice revisions bringing our TPG-Series product page up to date step-by-step.

This is great news Hans.

Has everything been fixed regarding the TSO Insoder newsletter? I still have never received one through email.

Thanks

@rj_mccall – if TSOproducts.com is  in your address book you should see a new TSO INSIDER arrive in your In-box over the weekend April 27/28. PM me with your email address as you have subscribed.

I was surprised at the relatively high percentage of un-delivered emails which are considered “normal” in the email service business like MailChimp. Apparently, the various major players in the internet business ae finding ways to pour the baby out with the bathwater – blocking not only spam but a fair volume of legitimate mass mailing communication. We’re not satisfied with the answers we’re getting from MailChimp.

Perhaps another FOGger can point us in a direction for better service.

Hans, Thanks for the update, can't wait :)

As for email, I am a subscriber for over a year and received only one news letter from T.S.O. I checked my spam folder and there was no TSO email.

Q: Can left & right hand tracks be attached to the GRS-16 PE?

@rj_mccall and @Mario Turcot ;
Here is what Eric found today:
“We have him in the database to receive transactional emails about the order he placed on 9-2017. He has not subscribed to the Insider”.
TSO INSIDER mailing go only to individuals registered specifically to receive it. We interpret privacy to mean that only (purchase) transaction related emails like tracking, order confirmation, etc can be sent. Mass mailings like the TSO INSIDER are considered by TSO to be wanted only when specifically requested by “subscribing”.
rj_mccall is in our database for his purchase 7:40pm Sept. 3rd 2017. But he is not registered to receive the TSO INSIDER.
Anyone  with expertise on this subject on the FOG?

Hans, thanks for looking into this.

From what I recall I did, but to make sure I clicked on the link above to access the TSO parallel guide system. At the bottom of the page I clicked on the subscribe link and subscribed to the TSO Insider. I received that message:


I understand that this is for your insider communication, which I rarely or never received any email (checked spam too). I did not found any where to subscribe to the parallel guide system update. Did I miss something?

I am unable to purchase the TPG  30/20 both hands, do I have to wait for an Insider email... I've entered several times and yet to receive an email.
