I am expecting that they will be complete on Friday. They go in for powder coat on Thursday... They have the powder coat color.. They go into a bathing process first. It will just be a matter of how thick the powder coat will be and impact on the threads... masking if necessary ...thats required,,,if it impacts on the threads... I would prefer if the entire unit had the same coating.... This will require that I make up the two assemblies with the cnc bolt threaded so they can be hung.... I am expecting that the coating may actually assist being set at 1/1000 of an inch. These guys are pro's you should see some of the stuff they do. I am going to have to take a hard look at this process and make it more efficient if possible. Even tho it will be the best, most durable finish the assembly time, and dissassembly time for packaging make it difficult to break even. I will worry about that on a next run. I expect people will like the fact that these are built with a exponential amount of overkill and not want to hang thier pride and joy on a unadjustable pipe, or other pieces of commercial junk that i wouldnt trust with a slide projector.
I measured the average drop to be approximately 10" from the top of the bottom of the mounting plate.
I will be offering some options in the future... I have some real great ideas for future projects, and other mounts for the products I carry.
In an effort to not lose any credibility I have been sticking around to make sure I can expedite all the suppliers through the chain and make them aware of expectations... This has been easy due to the fact that some are clients and they expect and get the same from me.
I am looking into this for the long term. I am seeking a good US location for facilitating orders. Due to the fact that I wanted to expedite I have yet to be able to make a trip into the USA. I may end up going through distribution channels to save me time... The cost of doing individual orders is enormous. I apologize for not having the options for payment already set up. If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can make an arrangement with you that is secure in the interim.
Thanks again for your interest and making this a fun project.
