New Venture - Exxos and Icky

Hi,

@exxos and I have been working behind the scenes and through a lot of effort we have managed to procure investment to help us setup a warehouse with a production line. We are looking to start the first production of next generation of STF boards based on the ALPHA and now the H4. We would like to thank the testers and builders who have helped us get to this juncture and now we believe we have the right backing to move this forward for the community.

We hope the future allows us to manufacture a production version of the H4:

We are really excited at this prospect as we have secured a site as a location for our base:

However before we get ahead of ourselves we have run into a delay due to the current world situation and we are on pause for this venture until we know it will be safe to do so and we will then be looking to hire assembly line employees to start producing the yet to be named production version of the STF Remake.

We will keep you posted on our progress after the world has righted itself - stay safe everyone

That's awesome news, good work @exxos and @Icky .

I'm going to ignore the fact that it's 1st April and hope for a speedy end to this virus crap so that you can get on with business.

With this unit being literally 30 seconds away from me, I took the liberty of arranging a sneak peek look around a few weeks ago...

Loads of bays outside for arrivals and distribution.

@exxos Is there an IDE building shack for me? I've built so many of late I could do with a bit of a production line ;)

BTW, when are you going to reveal this as your April fools prank?

There is only 1 out-building. But I am sure we could rig up some internal benches. There is plenty of room!

Have you installed the @terriblefire intercom yet? Permanently playing Terriblefire advice to save him repeating himself?

And what about the hot air gun for the shrink wrapping? Located next to Russ's bench so it can double up as a soldering iron?

we're going to use a flamethrower for the shrink wrap!
