We’re still going.

We recently completed a Kickstarter campaign summer 2018 and we learned a lot.

We launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finalize the design for Rip-it and to fund mass production. Our goal was $100,000 and we only raised $29,386. Because we didn’t reach 100% of our goal, we received¬†$0.00. So our goal now is to learn from our mistakes and try again. We found ways of not doing things, and that’s a big advantage when we launch again in early 2019.

We actually did a lot better than we anticipated! We had no expectation to reach our goal the first try. While Rip-it is¬†empirically more advantageous to use over a standard tablesaw fence it’s also niche. It’s also expensive.

What we’re going to be working on is a better design, better marketing, and a better strategy. We’re partnering with more firms and our product design firm, Steele is more involved than ever.

We’re still going.

News/Blogs

Having Rip-it featured on various news outlets was by the most fruitful source of pledges. This will definitely be our focus on our second launch.

Our Site

Many pledges came from our own site. We’ll want to cultivate the good aspects of our web design and make Rip-it’s benefits more apparent.

Kickstarter

They say that in general, 10% of your funding comes from people browsing on Kickstarter. That looks like the case here. Our best best is to get Rip-it featured on the second launch.

We’ll be back soon.

We’re currently redesigning and rebuilding Rip-it.

We’re partnering up with some big names and pulling together some serious support. We’re completely self funded so things move slow, but we anticipate launching an Indiegogo campaign early spring of 2019. Stay tuned. Rip-it has just begun.
