Most issues were traced to debris from a wire brush used for cleaning parts at the meter factory (we think they passed testing at the point of origin and debris dislodged and jammed the mechanism in shipping) and now we run a more sophisticated component screening test at our facility.
This morning 600 circuit boards came off the line at WAi/Circuit Hub! We brought some test equipment along to check the first pieces as they came out of the machine and when that passed, the rest were cranked out in about 2-3 hours. (That’s slightly longer than it took to hand solder the first prototype.) We spot checked as they came off the line and everything went as expected!
Hi all! We’re making steady progress on the Clocks now. At this point, we’ll mostly just be waiting for electronic parts to arrive.
A number of backers have asked about shipping surveys. Don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything, we’ll be sending out a shipping survey as we near the end of the fabrication process.
Here’s the quick rundown on progress in the last two weeks:
