How much did these drop for? Though I know Brad said they'd have to be more next time. But lol, the email just went out today I believe, and I didn't even see this till they were sold out.

Hey Ben, They Ended at $65. Currently there are 83 requesting it again. Once I get the funds from this one, I'll turn around and put it right back into more. It's hard to judge the demand for them. How many do you think?

It was pretty crazy t1m1d, thank you all for the support, I will be back! It will take atleast a Month to make another batch this size. Took my wife and I 7 hours to put together and package 120 of these. That's after everything was machined and ready to go. Some people think I'm crazy for making quality Titanium EDC items for so cheap, but It's a passion :)

Thanks Brad :) .
Yeah, demand is hard to judge... From the Ergodox buys (since I watched the first couple pretty closely) I got the impression that about half the "requests" turned into actual buys -- but I'm certain Massdrop has *much* better statistics about that -- and I'd also have a really hard time believing you'd only sell ~40 if you ran it again right now, lol. I suppose you could always wait till all the orders are in before actually producing any? The time to customer would be much longer of course, but I bet no one would mind, especially if it meant that as many people as wanted could join the drop -- and it would solve the cash-flow problem completely, wouldn't it?
And OT (sorry) but is there a place I can sign up to get emails when you're running products (whether on here, or on kickstarter, or anywhere)? I was looking around on your website, and I didn't see a way. Thanks for making such awesome stuff!

Happy New Year! (almost)
I talked to my waterjet guy and he thinks he can have 150sets waterjet and shipped to me in 2 weeks. I'd say 3 weeks to do the Milling, and all the finishing work. I'm going to shoot for Feb 7th launch on Massdrop with a Max of 140. There are about 90 requests, so if your 50% is right, that is still 45 sold, and would hit the Min price. Also it's above my previous expectation, so I'd be happy :D
I don't have any newsletter or anything. I let my KS backers know about future projects though updates, so far that has worked well. They can also unsubscribe from them, so it works just like a newsletter. I won't have a project ready on KS until probably March. I appreciate the kind words :)
120 Lockpick sets are ready to go, the UPS guy will pick them up Monday and be on their way to Massdrop :)
Thanks for your support everyone! Happy Holidays, Brad
