To be honest - I don't believe this run will happen in the near future and therefore kindly asking for refunding the deposit.
Thanks

it's def happening. You can have your $10 back if it doesn't.
Neither of these appear to be true at the moment ;)

Can we get an update on your progress please? If the run is cancelled, please can you arrange deposit refunds.

Here's the previous prototype I made for fitting. Designing the post so it locks on to the metal disc and fits in a socket of the housing so it can spin the way I like. Dimensions and details aren't correct, just working on the function:

An update on this project would be greatly appreciated. It's been nearly a year now since the first post, is the run even still occurring?

... nearly two years.

Which would be totally fine, if there had been a "Sorry guys, right now I do not have the time/ I'm lacking the proper motivation." or something like that.
But money has been taken which lead to a certain expectation at my end. The last update looked more like lip service to me.
This is why I left.

I traded with zenix several times before and it always has been flawless. Because of that, the decision to leave wasn't easy and I do not understand what is happing here.

"... nearly two years."

Whoops, yes indeed. Which actually makes me a little more irritated at the time taken....

Most of this delay has been timing with other serious projects, motivation on this one, and having a new baby. I've been extremely busy, and didn't see it as a big issue with taking money since it was only ten bucks and not a full prepayment. I do plan on finishing, and I do want one of these so I know I'll finish. Baby came in September and that changed all projects where I have to go to the shop and be hands-on

I opened this project back up and will make progress this week. I moved my printer back home from my shop so I can work from home and take care of baby at the same time. Having it here will let me iterate quickly and get the design finished. Tonight I'm printing the pins that hold onto the disc from both sides, and squeeze in between the two main triangles of the prop.
