« Part 1: Finally some exposure Part 2 of Fine Woodworking does ezee-feed review series no next part

Hi everyone;

Since a lot of LJ’s have been following the progress of my ezee-feed project, I wanted to share part of my day today. I hope no-one is put off by my posting this or thinks I’m bragging as I’m really in no position to brag, but it was a very special day for me. (I don’t have a lot of those since embarking on this project).

I’ve had a number of orders waiting for the first batch of Ezee-Feed units to come out of the factory, since I stopped making them. I know some people must have started wondering if they were even a real product!

The factory has missed a number of estimated shipping dates, and each time they did, I got put in a bad spot, as I would pass on the information to my customers. Each time I had to send emails out saying there was a delay made me feel like a liar.

I was requested to go to a pre shipment inspection this morning. The questions being asked by factory people over the phone had me wondering if they even looked at the drawings. I was even asked to bring sample installation kits with me so they could have samples of the hardware we used. High anxiety time for sure!

It was such a relief and what a great sight I was treated to when taken to the area they were working on my project.

I have been waiting to see this for what seems like an eternity, and sometimes doubted I would ever see it.

I was greeted with assembly lines full of ezee-feed units! What a feeling it was to see.

Thanks for letting me share this with you.

Lee

Lee,

I have been following the progress on your product for some time. Having an opportunity to create a product that is well thought out and is practical must be very exciting and not without its stresses.

Congratulations on bring your idea to market.
