I did not think these were set to be delivered until later this year, early 2018. ..?

From their site "Batch 2 pre-orders are estimated to begin delivery January 2018"

I thought "Batch one"  was to be delivered Feb of 2017.  Thought maybe some FOGers might have gotten one.

Yea no one has them yet except those that where hooked up for reviews or promotional purposes. All the years theyve been working on that thing and they still arent out. I plan to wait a year or two AFTER they finally come out and get into the hands of actual customers before I even consider them an option.

I'm an investor, so don't you go sayin' nuttin' bad about my people, awright?

But seriously, they're having some sort of live event tomorrow, Thursday, at 5:30 PDT according to their Facebook page.

I plan to be there.

Cheers - Gary

PS  According to the FAQ:

Batch 1 pre-orders (taken prior to Feb 1, 2017) will begin shipping September 2017. Batch 2 pre-orders (taken after Feb 1, 2017) will begin shipping January 2018. For specific information about our terms and conditions click here.

I assume I'm in batch 1.

I'm on the order list after using it at the Festool event.  Expected delivery is Sept 2017 and then the second batch coming in 2018.

I'm excited about what they are up to and the potential of that kind of accuracy without giving up a lot of shop space, plus the option of taking the tool to the job site.

Thanks for the heads-up on the FB Live session tomorrow -

Every year they say they are going to release them the next year. I first played with one 2 years ago at a Maker Faire in the Bay Area. First heard about them three years ago. I hope they finally do get these released, but its sad how many times and for how many years theyve pushed it out.
