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.

Or should I be religiously checking the website?

@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.

@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?

Eagerly awaiting any updates!

Although the adjustable dogs look good, they're certainly not the TPG System!

@Mario Turcot - @dr.r.lam - @jasen  and @lerabotperche -

Has an insider newsletter circulated regarding the TPG product line?

the  TSO INSIDER release date announcement of the TPG-Series Parallel Guide is already programmed to be in mailboxes as planned around the world this weekend: May 11/12.

Let us share with you the approach we are taking with all our new product introductions. We will have the complete product offering in the warehouse, initially in limited quantities. All of our new product roll-outs will typically be met by demand in excess of our ability to immediately fulfill.

Rest assured that follow-on production materials are already in the pipeline several months into the future. We will be ramping up as quickly as is responsible to do.
We expect it will take several months before we have product to fill our dealer supply line, not just our own stock.

Remember: it’s not just you wonderful people out there wanting our product – for TSO it is a necessity to ship.

We are motivated!
Hans, Eric and the whole TSO Team

the GRS-16 PE parts just came back from anodizing this afternoon so its just getting into the assembly- packing and warehousing schedule, perhaps a week.

The TPG-50 Track is planned only as a pair for now. I'd say buy the pair, it will never cost less. The whole question of "which combinations will customers actually buy" - is really the big unknown for us from a production planning standpoint. Only time will tell what adjustments need to be made to our offerings and product groupings.

FYI  To help the team at TSO with what I can imagine as a busy time starting today :), I thought I'd post here to let others know of some of the issues in ordering. I sent them an email and thought if we state the issue here in this thread it will save the guys reading / being notified of the same issue.

As hans is said its best to email @info but mentioning it here, at least helps others whether TSO know about the issue.

I hope that all makes sense.

Issue 1: If you want to order the PE square - you can't - as it's not in stock - not an issue if you dont want to get a $10 discount or purchase the PE.

Issue 2: At the time of this post you can't order the TPG20 & TPG30 as its still "Notify" - might be my timing.

Cheers

Thanks for that!
I tried so desperately to get my order in, but could not get any of the options to work and now I know why! For what its worth I need to get a PE or 2.


Hopefully they'll let me pre-order, to lock in one of the TPG's and wait for the PE's to be back in stock.
