Hey group,

We spoke with the vendor earlier today about the status of the group's order and it sounds like the perfect storm managed to hit between the last update and now. Delays from the supplier of machined components along with unexpected issues obtaining glass for the spin stations set back the shipping schedule more than expected and the vendor has been left handling the load of three different people.

The good news is that these units are now nearly complete and slated to ship to us by the end of this week. As soon as we receive confirmation of shipment and the tracking information we will let the group know accordingly. We appreciate your patience with this one as we've worked with the vendor to sort things out!

You can expect an update from us on 12/1 or sooner if something comes up.

Hey group,

We've touched base with the vendor again this week and they've let us know that they are still waiting for the glass to arrive from their supplier and now anticipating shipment to our warehouse within the week. We will continue to check in and update the group with any news we receive.

Again, we understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (http://massdrop.com/transactions).

You can expect an update from us on 11/23 or sooner if something comes up.

Hey group,

Another quick update. We've just heard back from the vendor and they've let us know that they are just awaiting the glass to arrive from their supplier and hope to have all units en route to our warehouse by next week. We will follow up again then and update the group with any news we receive.

We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (http://massdrop.com/transactions).

You can expect an update from us on 11/17 or sooner if something comes up.

We've continued to coordinate with the vendor about the group's order and they've let us know that it's taken them slightly longer than expected to gather and prepare everything for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. Rest assured, we will remain in close contact with them and update the group as soon as everything is on the way.

Expect another update from us on 11/2 or sooner if something comes up.

If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.

Expect another update from us on 10/26 or sooner if something comes up.

If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to manufacture and prepare the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Vorso Electron Spin Station and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 11/1.

We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/13.

While I'm heavily debating getting into the pocket top / EDC top community and I'm highly interested in this product, I'm concerned due to recent issues Massdrop has had with managing pre-sales. A recent example I was involved in was their Dead of Winter pre-sale, which had horrible communication and updates from Massdrop after the vendor had issues. My comment on the situation (and related drop) is found in the link below.

Massdrop, do you have any comment on how this pre-sale will be better handled if issues should arise?

I've had nothing but positive experiences with massdrop. You can see all the purchases I've made. Aside from DHL, which hasn't been too horrible for me, everything else has been great. They've communicated by all the dates they said they would. I've often gotten things sooner than the delivery dates stated in the drops. I think you'd be ok if you wanted to purchase here.

I agree in that I'm not worried about purchasing from Massdrop. I'm also used to potential delays / slow shipping due to how Massdrop deals with their vendors. However, the drop I linked to had abysmal shipping times AND poor communication from Massdrop. As a result, my only concerns in future business with Massdrop is when it's a pre-sale of an item not mass manufactured (small artisan vs large world wide company), and I'm not the only one with such worries.

So, Massdrop, I repeat my question: given the growing concern over poor communication when facing issues with vendors, specifically with pre-sales such as this one, what are you doing to better handle things?
Does this drop include the top, base and glass?
Dolphy
No No, not the top. Just the base and glass.

Just the base and glass. You can get the top and add a base here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/the-vorso-mk1-spinning-top
When does the orbit station launch?
Like Shazb0t, I would need something much larger to keep my hard spins from flying off it. I would guess somewhere around twice the diameter would be about right, but maybe even bigger.

Go CVS or Target and look at their cosmetic mirrors. They have a nice one that makes a perfect 6 inch base for less than $10
What is this exactly and what is it used for?
Arjun_Sheth
It's a concave piece of glass housed in an Aluminium frame used for spinning Tops. And yes, spinning Tops are a thing, and yes people do pay obscene prices for the High End ones made from Exotic materials. The spin-station gives you a pristene surface to spin them on, giving you better times.

Not quite. It is just a simple glass lens that is resting on a machined base. It may look nice, but does it look $84 bucks nice? Personally, I pass especially bc we have an interesting scrap yard close by that specializes in purchasing industrial metals and I have found nifty objects that would convert into a place I could put a glass lens. Not that this necessarily applies to anybody but me, but I am just pointing out that the essential item (the glass lens) is nothing special and the base could be possibly obtained elsewhere for a lot less. However, if one were to like the design...... all power to such person. That what money is for.
