    First of all, are any Arc swivels in use today not pristine? If so, I would like to know about it and figure out if there are design defects. The oldest ones are only 6 months in the field, and I had hoped the important parts would stay pristine longer.

    Secondly, I ran out of some of the raw components to make more swivels, and I'm not sure the demand is there to justify buying more of them yet. I would need to front about $200 in materials, and then incur a costs for each one purchased because I donate 100% of the purchase price to my charity.

    The way the math works out, if I would only sell a handful more Arcs, it would be better for my charity if I just donate my front money and be done with it.

    I am keeping a list of people who express interest in getting an Arc, and if it makes sense to go back into production, I will. There are no tricks or monkey business going on here, it is all about the puppies.
    Almost sounds like you're scolding me

    What you say makes perfect sense. Simple math, supply, demand..

    The two I have are in perfect condition and on two separate platforms in two separate houses. The third would just be as I said, a backup. That's all I meant.



    Edit; I will add that I added a photo album of my bag-room AKA BagBarn a few nights ago and you'll clearly see the arc fuel in a few pictures.

    • Sorry for my unintended tone. I really was trying to answer your “why” question above, and finally found the time. Please re-read it that way. I am so very grateful to all my buyers and supporters of my dog rescue, you among them!

      • Thank You

        Received my new ARC swivel yesterday three days early. Installed it right away. Could say it is
        “really smooth” or that it is “really quiet” (just bag) even better “I can’t believe the speed” But that wouldn’t really describe it. So let’s just go with
        “WOW”

        • Thanks, dad. Good feedback like this is very nice to read. If you discover any negatives, those comments are welcome too. I always want to improve upon my design and get the best version of it out there to all the baggers.

          • How did the smaller hooks end up working out?

            Comment


            • I have the CAD design for the smaller hooks done, and I printed a few prototypes. The size and fit looks good. But I still have to put the new design Tri-Hook through strength and failure testing. First I have to get some quality raw material up and printing. Then I can do quality and failure testing. And if it passes the quality tests, I can start up production again. Fingers crossed.

              • In case anyone is waiting for news about #ArcSwivel production...

                I am currently building some equipment that should allow me to produce higher quality nylon Tri-Hooks for less cost. After I get the production setup in place and produce a few prototypes, I will do some stress testing on the parts. Then we will see...
