      Not sure if you are using the correct choice of words but you were not given any run around so please do not play it off like you were. You were told you would receive an email shortly. Everyone in here has been extremely patient and understanding with respect to tracking and delivery times. We didn't recieve payment directly for the first 50 units so we are doing the best we can to fulfill those orders.

      As it is right now ....we have a request for an additional 30 units and we can not even start on those until all of you are taken care of.
      If you have anymore questions do not hesitate to contact us.

      I believe the disconnect is that a post was made on the 22nd that all of the pucks would commence shipping on that day and two weeks later it's not clear how many or which orders have actually shipped. I think it's the two week lag that's making folks a bit antsy.

      Mine arrived yesterday. They look fine (they don't match the CAD exactly, but are probably close enough). I'll try to jack the car up with one tomorrow.

      Still waiting on mine. Haven't received a tracking #, either. Nor any notification from my freight forwarder. Interesting...

      I want to put on my summer wheels before I drive down to the Geneva Auto Show next weekend, so I guess I'll just have to rig something up with a hockey puck and a socket instead.

      Can you be specific as to what you mean by they do not match the CAD exactly? Do you mean the jpeg file we showed earlier?

      50 additional units are in que to be machined now.

      Just jack it up normally at the flat areas further under the car (behind front, in front of rear).. same as the workshop does when they have your car. No need for MacGuyver tricks.

      My bad; the jack pad matches the jpeg file you posted earlier, but not the original SketchUp CAD file. The top of the "post" was a semi-circle in the CAD, but has a small 1-2mm flat at the top of your jpeg. I doubt it'll cause any issues.

      Just FYI, you may want to reduce the width of the "post" from 70mm down to maybe 68mm for future production runs just to make it easier to insert in to the slot under the car.

      At 70mm, it's hard to actually fit it in the groove. Luckily the groove is some sort of hard plastic-like material, so if you line it up straight and push hard enough, it will eventually pop in. It's a tight enough fit that if I let go of the jack pad, the jack pad will actually stay in the slot and not fall out under its own weight.

      I may file down the edges a bit just to help it pop in a little easier.

      Isn't that what people want though? For the Jack puck to be secure onto the puck slot? I doubt 2mm will make a difference but if they have not started cutting ill make the modification.

      Actually, I'm pretty excited that it fits like that. It will make using a lift so much easier. I was worried that it wouldn't stick into the grooves and that I was going to have to use tape or something to coordinate a 4-point lift.

      I can fit them in to the slots on my car after a few tries, but I'd be more concerned about the tolerance of the slot across a larger quantity of cars (and tolerance of the jack machining) making it so some don't actually fit.

      Cutting out a millimeter or two would just help ensure that they'll always fit.

      Though it sounds like some folks like the tight fit...

      The original file created using Google Sketchup was designed to have a fairly loose fit. It was both shorter in length and smaller radius on the top than what the pocket of my own car measured.

      A tighter fit will work just fine. If it requires a bit of pressure to pop the jack pad in, then it's even better in my opinion.

      I'm more worried about put popping it in at the bottom of the slot where the force can bend open the slot slightly, but it getting jammed / stuck once I actually jack the car up with it. I'll try jacking the car up tonight.

      One of the guys sent me an email that should calm your fears. Looks like someone beat you to the spring tire change rush. It comes out after being jacked up
