Yesterday I ended with 324 complete SlimmeLezers. This morning I’ve added another 30 and now I’m working on 50~60 extra… things are speeding up!
I’ve got enough pcb’s and Wemos’s (they keep coming in). I’ve got 600 cables (need 750+), but another 1000 is coming within a week. My printer is working around the clock for printing enough cases and more is coming via other printing services. With this tempo, I hope to fulfill all orders by the end of next week (most will be done this week).
All ordered ESPHome Doorbell’s are made and almost all are already sealed in their bag. Those will be processed too by the end of this week. It could be that when ordered more than just the doorbell, not the whole order can be processed (in case you’re ordering a SlimmeLezer or Ethernet Reader too and they’re not ready for delivery). In that case I will ship only the doorbell and the rest will be shipped later (don’t wanna keep you too long waiting, as you’re already waiting too long!).
I’ve tried to rescue the failed boards from JLCPCB, but as that costed me way too much time desoldering all headers, I’ve ordered another batch of pcb’s which will be delivered within a week (and al little more). Therefore I’m able to deliver about 50% of all current orders. I wished the desoldering was faster, but had to make a choice and spending that time on the backorders of SlimmeLezers.
For all those who’re trying to mail me and/or posting on my blog: sorry for responding not that quick. I’m working very hard to try to work all those backorders away as it took too long to start and now things are speeding up.
I really am trying to answer every single question I get, but for now, I’m way too busy soldering all those orders. Please be patience with me as everything is speeding up now.
21:40 Today I’ve received the other 1000 cables, which means I’ve got twice the needed cables on stock. Probably printing the cases will be the bottleneck. My printer is printing 24/7 and another guy is printing with 3 printers for me.
I’ve also started packaging orders and create labels for them. Soon the first few hundred orders will be shipped (packaging takes quite some time unfortunately)
