Lil Trucker™ Update: On Track - Waiting for Completion of Pre-Production Prototypes.
An update from Kickstarter
The last two weeks have been very busy for us at the Innovation Factory. The team in Indiana has the Lil Trucker design and will be making the all-steel prototypes. These models are scheduled for completion within 2-3 weeks, after casting, annealing, machining, straightening, heat treating, coating, sharpening and final assembly.
With the prototypes in hand, we'll be able to finalize the design for manufacturability as well as to integrate some final improvements. Once that is done, we will be ready to create the permanent tooling required to efficiently manufacture the Lil Trucker.
Meanwhile, we've also finalized the arrangement with the primary manufacturer for the Lil Trucker Companion product. The design will now go through a final formal assessment and tweaking. Then we'll be ready to create the high-volume injection molding tooling.
Thank you all for your continued feedback. I will continue to do my best to respond to all messages within 24 hours.
P.S.: We are hoping to recruit some celebrities to help get the word out about the Lil Trucker. If you have any suggestions or contacts, please let me know.
