Package? on 01/07/2011 21:30:14 MST Print View

I've got an idea, what about offering some stakes (say 6-8) as a package with a Cuben stake bag?

6" Ti-Eye on 01/14/2011 00:55:41 MST Print View

The 6" Ti-Eye's will go on sale tomorrow afternoon around 5pm EST. They will be $2.00 a piece and I will upload the official product photo and discription tomorrow before they go on sale since there has been a minor change made.

Just a note: As of now the 2.95mm rod is a one time deal. This size rod is an over-run at the mill. Its a very uncommon sized rod so its almost impossible to find more. (I have been looking for weeks) After these sell out I will be switching to the 3.175mm (1/8") rod. Its a little bit stronger but heavier.

Thanks,
Lawson

Ti Tent Stakes on 01/14/2011 08:41:01 MST Print View

Nice stakes. I missed this thread here. (New here and still lurking.) I posted about them on some other forums as well as on my blog too.

So, how many of the 2.95 mm rods will you have. Between here and hammock forums it looks like you have sold a ton of these things already! I would like to get a few of each as well, but wondering if there will be a wait on them...

I'm holding out for some of the pigtail and longer heavier ti-eyes.

Thanks Stick for posting this on you blog.

Doesn't look like they are available yet on the mountainfitter site?

tent stakes available on 01/14/2011 15:28:58 MST Print View

Tent stakes are available. It looks like I have close to 1,000 of them.. They will not ship until the end of next week when the paint will be fully cured. The delay is due to no heat in the shop which has not allowed us to paint the stakes.. I am working on setting up a heater so I can get them painted. Sorry about the delay.

corkscrews on 01/14/2011 16:26:16 MST Print View

The corkscrew machine I designed and built broke last week at the beginning of the production run. I am working on fixing the problem but I am swamped with all the other products I am building so maybe 2-3 weeks. Sorry for the delay with the paint and the corkscrews.

Haha. I've got that same problem Lawson, I have to do all my cuben work at home because it's too cold in the shop to cure the bonds. ;)



Keep us posted on the corkscrews, those who know what's what are anxious! ;D

Just put an order for 8 in. It was hard not to buy more - I'm going to hold out for some curlies and the thicker ti eye's.

Thanks,

Mike

Drying on 01/19/2011 08:42:28 MST Print View

Now that the weather has warmed up a bit the paint is starting to dry faster. The first batch is almost ready to stack and ship.

Thanks,

Did you dip, hand paint, or spray one or two coats on the stakes?

Dip on 01/19/2011 10:16:03 MST Print View

Hey Ken,

I dipped the stakes which is one of the reasons why they are taking longer to dry..

I think they're sold out already! Looks like there's quite a demand. :)

Re: Sold out? on 01/22/2011 23:32:58 MST Print View

I figured that would happen. Quite the buzz going on about these. I am looking to get some of the corkscrews to go with my new Lunar Duo, but after buying the tent I had better not press the wife for anything else right now...so it's a good thing I will have to wait anyway!

They're sold out.

I'm checking the site daily for the corkscrews.

Too late on 01/24/2011 09:49:24 MST Print View

Damn, I was too late on this.

I was looking to buy some of those straight eye hook stakes but it seems they're all gone : \

Bummer.
