All kits have been tested and the forty-9er portions reorganized for ease of assembly. Project Leader Matt now has the kits again, except for one: that kit's owner is soldering it together to check for assembly issues. This will not delay kit distribution.
We now have a reliable parts list for the modified Forty-9er part of the kit, based upon both the information contained in its schematic, and the prescribed modifications thereof . Lack of this list had been a major barrier to prospective volunteers for final inspection and testing .
The first kit is now tested and re-assembled. When six kits are ready, they will go back to Project Leader Matt. The seventh is being soldered together in order to discover any assembly issues.
The parts have been assembled into kits,
The parts in each kit are now being re-inventoried and tested
