Because I've gotten some questions, I also wanted to clear up something about when exactly the direct ordered vs. BPL ordered Boilers will ship.
The answer is that they will all leave my house at approximately the same time (+- a day), which should be in just a few days now. BPL will receive them in bulk and then ship them off to those who ordered them here. Those who ordered them directly will receive them as soon as the postman makes it from my house to theirs.
The other thing I wanted to note is that those Boilers available through BPL didn't cause the mfg delay. They were included in the math for the timelines the mfg and I agreed to (and I passed on on my website) from the get-go. That timeline just wasn't met.
The final thing that I know has been causing some confusion is the production sample that has been loaned out here and there. It was the one (there was only one) I received from the mfg a while ago, and I figured it would be put to better use out in the field than collecting dust in my apt. But it's just a loaner, and not nearly as pretty as the ones that everyone will get to keep in the very near future.
I hope that clears things up, and I want to reiterate how appreciative I am of the support everyone has provided. As I just told someone who messaged me, I see it as my obligation to repay that support through fair dealings, and I have done my best to do that.
Please don't hesitate to PM me here or send me an email at devin[at]theboilerwerks.com if you have any questions.
