Product Shipping Status:

ThumbDV™ is in stock!

DRAWS™ Boards are in the ASSY Queue, still waiting on a few components.

DRAWS™ Cases should receive approval this week.

ThumbDV™ Sale Ends June 1st 2020

We’re officially in Phase 2 here in San Juan County WA. So today is the last day of the “stay at Home” sale. We have 25 left in stock.

ThumbDV backorders are being shipped this week.

Shipping Update

ThumbDV™ shipped from the assembly house. Customer shipments Monday!

DRAWS™ Had a PCB Fab error and was re-run. We’ll keep you posted.

DRAWS™ Update

Component shortages have been filled and we have an assembly slot scheduled, so DRAWS™ Boards should ship by the end of the month.

The aluminum case was approved and the final prototypes are being made. We will post a video on case assembly as soon as they arrive.

Thanks for your patience.

Stay at Home SALE on the ThumbDV™ Extended

When we started the sale back in March, it was until the Stay at Home Order was lifted or we ran out of inventory.

Due to high sales, we are now out of stock. A new build was initiated last week, so we’re going to extend the sale!

Normally $119.95, on Sale NOW for $99.95 until the order is lifted.

We expect the next build to arrive by the end of May.

DRAWS™ Update

Sample cases are in house, as well as PCB Fabs, so we can confirm both case designs and move to production. We are still chasing component shortages and longer lead times on the boards. Our assembly house is open, but also impacted by the stay at home order.

We still have plenty of inventory on the ThumbDV™, on sale for $99.95!

Thanks for your patience, and stay safe!
