Any more word on this? I am looking forward to some titanium coolness...

Hi Stephen,

Things have been going a lot slower than I would like. I'm currently in the process of trying to graduate high school, and that's been eating up a lot of time. However, I am getting ever closer to finishing. I just need to finish the thermal barriers now.

The thermal barriers have caused me a lot of grief. Trying to drill a 2mm diameter hole 26mm deep is trying in most materials, to say nothing of Ti6Al4V. On a 70 year-old lathe. I've gone through a lot of drill bits and titanium bar, but I'm slowly getting them done. I hope to finish and ship them all by the end of memorial day weekend.

Sorry for taking so long, but I will ship them. If there's anything I can do for you in the mean time, please shoot me a message and let me know.

No worries, I still haven't found enough time to assemble my ORDbot, so I am in no hurry, just curious. I was trying to drill some brass rod with just a drill press and my results were mixed, bad and terrible :roll:

Congratulations on the graduation !
