5/6 kits of the current batch went out today, one more hopefully tomorrow. That will be all I can fulfill until more springbars arrive.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this project through feedback, encouragement and purchase of a kit. I can’t wait for these to be in your hands.

This is brilliant. I'm not in CONUS and don't have access to a 3d printer, but if I was / did, I would be all over this.

Bravo!

Once I clear the current waiting list, I plan on looking into international shipping. If people want to pay the increased shipping costs, then I don’t see a reason to keep it away from people. The added shipping cost may make this overall less attractive though.

Still, I can look into it and people can decide if it is worth it or not. I am guessing that it will make more sense to track down someone locally with a 3D printer though provided that Altoids are readily available.

I am glad that got there in good time. Please let me know how it works out for you and your collection of springbars.

The 6th (of 6) kits shipped out today. Now I am back to waiting on springbars to come in again.

Edit: I love the picture, better than any of the ones that I took.

Quick update. I have 1,000 springbars!

I will be putting kits together as I can. Need a bit busy, but I will get through the wait list before too long.

Started to put kits together and made myself a tool to help sort 20 springbars at a time. Has made the process go much faster.

I love my springbar kit from [mention]sporkboy[/mention], but of course I had to make some modifications to personalize it a bit.

I decided to add an index label inside the lid and gave the outside an orange paint job complete with vintage Sea Wolf decal. I think it turned out pretty good!

I’m down for the full kit if you’re still taking order for the waitlist.
