300-444 patch cables? That's a lot of :75:

But if someone has lots of HP, it needs lots of patch cables...

Was considering a gear giveaway, for a lucky HEX-01 supporter... but apparently it's against the (lottery) law. :hmm:

Backed. Had been waiting on this but didn’t even know the Kickstarter started. Hope the word gets out. Would be good to get this posted on matrixsynth.com

The less you do the more they cost. Even if I did 250 units, I’d be in the red.

Conversely, the less they cost, the more you sell. But, just starting out you are squeezed on both sides. I doubt that you are making much if anything doing small quantities at the current price.

Thanks

Also keep in mind... the selling point of this product (aside from it looks cool af) is that these hold a considerable amount more cables (444+ PGH cables, for instance), in comparison to what’s available today.

So it IS a larger piece of steel (and in some cases, thicker), with more cuts. Probably a more expensive tool and die process for the bends/center bevel for the final product... you can’t really compare it to a smaller (or more simplistic) product, and wonder how even just a larger one costs more (unless mine were done in a lesser quality, or with cheaper materials). As much as I would have LOVED for it to be cheaper, I also didn’t want it to be cheaply made.

I could have them done cheaper in China. But that raises some legitimate concerns. Like quality control, not being there to manage it. Shipping a large order of steel parts overseas, is really expensive. And what it they get damaged, or show up looking really crappy? I’d be blindly sending everyone’s pledges to a company that I’ve never been to, or worked with before. It seemed too risky. Plus I’d rather support the local economy if possible.

The only other way that I see, is to produce thousands of these things. So the expenses are divided even further. I think it would be a very similar crowdfunding outcome though... I would have a less expensive product, and possibly more pledges... but then the goal would probably need to be set even higher, in order to cover the costs of manufacturing thousands more. That didn’t seem very realistic either, so... I had to choose the lesser of two evils.

Don’t worry, man... If this crowdfunding approach doesn’t work, I’ll find another way. I won’t give up THAT easily. ;)

Damn, just noticed this probably won’t hit its target and get funded. That would suck big time. I’ve been searching for something just like this :(
