We’ve decided to make the choice of adding this item to our store for two reasons.
The first is that we believe that it should make it easier for people who are building their own machines from scratch to do so since the rails themselves are one of the more challenging and expensive items to source and mill. We’ve gotten a lot of requests for us to sell this item on our store, so we’ve decided to do so.
Second, and probably most important for us as a business is that we’ve been able to work closely to our manufacturers and suppliers to be able to produce these components in smaller batches at an affordable price. One of the biggest challenges for us as a fairly small and new company is to be able to produce parts at a large enough scale that makes it cost-effective while keeping batches small enough that money isn’t tied up in materials for too long. Since we’ve figured out a way to make smaller batches without making the costs go crazy, we can make sure that we can keep the item in stock sustainably.
So, if you’ve been thinking about or planning to build your own machine, consider checking out our store for parts!
If there’s any other parts or products you’d like us to stock, feel free to reach out and we’ll see what we can do.
