Original Interest Thread: Interest in a drop in mechanical Ion kit?


*I spoke with Carter about starting a pre-order for these kits after he showed interest in one himself.
He said "You guys have the go ahead... Can't wait to see what happens here!"

Y0da900 and I started talking about making a mech ion mod kit after my meanderings in Mac valves.
The result is a drop-in kit that includes everything needed to convert your regular electronic ion into a mechanical beast!

Our goal was to make a kit that will require no modifications such as drilling or taping of your existing marker. A bracket slides in the old board's spot to hold the valve and you connect the hoses to your existing banjo fittings.


In no way, shape, or form were corners cut in sourcing parts for these kits. Our goal upon seeing people suggesting prices of $90 and $100 was to make this kit more affordable. That being said, stock bolts are being sourced, USED, but will come with new o-rings. The valves are being sourced as USED from a pneumatic supply company. I am in the process of sourcing NEW bolts in bulk, but I do not want to raise the price of these kits any more. (see below)

A kit includes the following:
1 Custom Y0da900 machined valve retention bracket
1 dual tail o-ringed ion bolt NEW
1 Mechanical Valve
1 3/32 * 1/16 * 3/32 reducing tee
aprox. 1ft of 5/32 Ion Hose
aprox. 1/2ft of 1/8 Ion Hose
Manual is in linked PDF:
http://www.filedropper.com/mechanica...allationmanual
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

Pricing of the COMPLETE kit is $70USD. Due to interest, a kit WITHOUT bolt will be $64USD. Please specify which you would like.
Shipping is included in this cost.
International orders ARE welcome, but there MAY be an additional charge.


Payment is in WHOLE; no partial payments, please.
Payment is made via PayPal, Check, or MO.

We will NOT be selling individual parts at this time.

Most of the parts have been ordered. We are just waiting on the brackets, hose, and sourcing bolts.
We are estimating roughly a month before we are ready to ship. (1-2 weeks for delivery of parts and during that time the brackets will be fabricated. There is a LOT of cushion in this time frame, but I want to be fair in case something comes up.) Please note that the renders and picture above are PROTOTYPES. There is also work on another design. Whichever is the "best" after testing (if it wiggles, how the trigger hits the board, ease of install, etc), will be the production model. Please do NOT assume that the renders/pictures are exactly what the production model will be!

(see below)

Per the top of the thread, pre-orders will close 8-8-11.

The preliminary pre-order will be for 50 Kits. This will be expanded as interest shows. I will check this thread periodically and PM those interested with payment details.

Kits Ordered With Bolt:

Jonotwist 1x (Shipped)
brycelarson 1x (shipped)
rockfrog 1x (shipped)
Ryantuomi 1x (shipped)
elarson1423 1x (shipped)
TPX 1x (shipped)
WikkidSikk 1x (Paid)
nerdcore 1x (Paid)
PistolRogue 1x (Paid)
subyrally1x (Paid)


Kits Ordered Without Bolt

crazyorigin 1x (shipped)


Regarding Revisions, upgrades etc.

*** For those who have pre-orded ***
We will be offering an upgrade path for any revisions we make.
We get a new tee? New bracket?
As long as you pre-order.. it's yours. For free.
The catch? You ship the old parts back and we ship the new.
These FREE upgrades are ONLY for those who pre-order.

*** For those who are NOT pre-ordering ***
The upgrade path will be offered to you as well, but you will have to pay for any new brackets or fittings.


We are also looking providing QEV's, but are not sure of the interest at this time. We would basically be using our bulk buying power to secure a decent deal and then distribute and ship them. If you would possibly be interested in a $10-15 qev, please indicate it. This is NOT a guarantee that we will be providing them in the future - it is a way to gauge interest.


Edits:
#1 Added Kit w/o bolt pricing
#2 Valve Picture Added
#3 Prototype Bracket + Pic Added
#4 Video Added
#5 Pic of Production Brackets added
#10? Added upgrade/revisions, closing pre-orders.

im in for sure
70 is more than reasonable. especially for custom. im ecstatic about this.

no need for a qev on my end. unless its highly recommended for a mech setup, if so then count me in for one.

is there any rush to pay as im broke untill this friday due to a overpriced math book.
is there any price drop if i already have my own 2 oringed tailed bolt?
if so i may order 2 one without and one with for my bro's ion.

Any chance of just getting the T fitting? I've already assembled everything else for my conversion but have been lazy on making the T fitting.

I hate to be the pain in the butt who asks this, but I've already got a dual o-ringed bolt, any chance of a package that doesn't include that?

QEV's are highly recommended. There is no rush to pay. The purpose of this pre-order is to gauge interest and allow me to get an idea of parts I need to order/modifications people suggest.

Due to the interest in a package without a bolt, I will need to do some math in a sec and figure out how much we can reduce the kit for those who already have a bolt with two o-rings. I am not sure how significant the reduction will be, but I sure as hell know that every $$ saved helps.
