I did the same. I was trying to keep it on the down low so I had less competition 😉

 

I tried to get a Max but they sold out in seconds so I went for a Flat instead and managed to bag one. Super stoked and can’t wait!! 😬

 

Gutted for those who didn’t get one though, it is a bit of a lottery and you’ve got to be super quick!!

Commiserations.

It was a very exciting 1 minute 😂..  the system put two in the basket . When I got rid of the extra one I think it was too late already 🤯.. I am sure my Zenith will look ok tilted on a couple of bricks .

It is disappointing when it doesn’t work out, to say the least 😑

I expect there will be a couple of KafaTek grinders on the market before too long - with delivery available in days rather than months!

The max did seem to fly. By the time I completed my purchase the flat was still showing as available but the MAX was already sold out. It didn't take me more than 30/40 seconds.

Did you try to contact Denis. The previous pre-order email seem to suggest you could get one if you emailed him after the pre-order and didn't mind waiting. I am guessing it just means being put on a next production run

Who knows! I’m guessing maybe 50 of each at the most.

The numbers of each grinder put for sale are not known as far as I can tell. Probably more than what we think but lower than the current demand for sure.

Am I the only one wondering if Dennis used to work in the diamond trade?

From the numbers people were quoting as order numbers it doesn't appear to be over 100.

Do you mean how long until delivery @Mrboots2u ? It 😘 usually 5 ish months after the opening/deposit. My Max is due at the month end, ordered May 2019. KafaTek took orders last week for deliver spring 2020 PLUS a second list for delivery June 2020, the batch after the next production run.

The conics are coming 😁 😁 and you know what THAT means 😊😁😊😁😊😁😊😁😊😁😊

The October delivery of conicals are currently being checked and packed for shipping towards the weekend. And then next week the MAXs get their final assembly and checks and they will be shipped 😁

This is a pre warning - I am going to be very, very excited, totally annoying and all stuff like that very soon 😁

Does that mean a standard flat or 2 may find their way onto the for sale boards?
