going round in circles : Coil manufacture

It has been a rollercoaster of a time. I thought it a good idea to start a 'News' page to keep you up to date with developments. We have come up against some very tricky problems with the coils that sit inside the ‘nose’ of the Submarine. I’m enormously relieved to say they have now all been solved. However there are some repercussions

We’ve been in constant contact with our supplier of these minute coils over the last few months. More times than I care to mention we’ve had to return samples when they have not performed as expected. In addition we’ve been through two total redesigns of the inner workings of the Submarine, fine tuning sometimes to hundredths of a millimetre.

I am pleased to announce that we have finally solved these problems. However as you may be aware this stage of the process has taken much longer than initially planned. It is of the utmost importance to me that the Submarine functions perfectly and making sure these minute parts are perfect is paramount. I would far rather you receive a great but late Submarine rather than an on-time shoddy one.

Those of you who have backed the Ulule campaign or pre-ordered should have already received an email. Please let me know if this is not the case.

I’m so sorry to say that the Submarine will not be with you in December. Shipping is now likely to be February at the very latest. I know all of you are very keen to get your hands on one and believe me I really am doing everything I can to get it to you as quickly as possible. 

All the very best
