Halfway Funded and a Temperature Experiment

We’re now past the 50% mark! Thanks everyone for your help. We still have a ways to go over the next 7 days. Check out this video we made as a quick thank you. It also has a short clip of a test we conducted at our house, in the spirit of the ongoing development process for the Portland Press. We wanted to do a quick gut check to make sure the Mason jars would hold up to being rapidly heated by hot water. We did this test with 20 Mason jars and none of them broke. Awesome!
