This product launch is completely different than anything we’ve ever done before, as we anticipate there to be an extremely high demand for this. Your tool will be ordered like a pre-order, reserve your spot, and wait for your tool to arrive. Doing it this way will stop out of stocks and back orders, although we will have to wait slightly longer, we will be more efficient in our inventory, happy and stress-free! Here’s how to reserve yours.
There will be three separate product reservation windows and corresponding shipping dates, (explained in the chart below).
The first window opens today – 17th November at 10am NZDT

Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose.
