That was actually a planned design cut when I spoke with Zilch a couple months ago. It was pretty much going to be a done deal until he passed away. I've got some emails from Zilch, but I deleted some last month to keep the inbox from being full. I can't find anything that clearly says "Make the CNC cabinets for the Karma Indignia", We were talking about a variety of items to help out the DIY community.
You might have read that we were both going to get websites up at the same time. The goal was for me to try and get the cabinets for super cheap and the waveguides while his site dealt with crossovers and drivers, and possibly 1 or 2 specific waveguides. I've got all those emails so I know what he wanted to have done.
Zilch's friend Chris helped him out in the lab quite a lot. I spoke with him on Friday and he seemed to think things should wait until until all the estate stuff was settled. Lawyer junk and things like that. Not sure how long that may take but I hoped this was going to be running last month.
I really don't know if it's considered an open design or what. It would be a nice thing to do, especially if we could set up some type of donation button for the design. Maybe Zilch had rental payments on his lab area that need to be met to keep it open, or something else. I just don't know.
I'm still willing to get it done if things get worked out. Chris is going to have so much work to do, I'm not sure when this next step will be taken, or if it will be taken at all. Obviously it's in idle mode right now.
