Update on the Crucible Lump Hammer
Posted on 20 November 2017
We’ve had lots of inquiries about the lump hammer. When will it be available? How much? Here’s a quick update.The hammer is ready for production. Raney has worked out the manufacturing of the head. We have a supplier for the handle. We know how to make it in sustainable quantities and sell it for $85.
Why are we holding off?To be honest: money. I know, I know. You aren’t supposed to say things like this on your blog. I’m supposed to make up some story about refining the whiz-shizits. Or tweaking the production of the bung-claptoids. Or discuss timing. Or simply say anything except “money.”
We don’t want to go into debt. And we want to stay in business for many years to come. So we need to sell some inventory of our dividers, holdfasts and curves to make enough money to pay for the raw materials to make a worthwhile batch of lump hammers.When will that be? I anticipate we’ll have the money in hand by the end of the year.
Thanks for your patience with us.— Christopher Schwarz
