Hi Modos Backers,
Our search for a manufacturer continues. We are currently vetting two extrusion finalists in Asia and one in the US and have received finishing samples from two of those companies. We also brought on another team member, Jackson Bosworth, a multi-talented Modos enthusiast, to speed up the project and help us further explore the possibility of manufacturing in the United States. Over the past month, we tested what it would take to cut and finish our connectors with our own hands in a local shop. In doing so, we determined that using an outside manufacturer is definitely the best option.
Here are photos of the latest samples we’ve received from two companies; one produced in the US and one in China. They are both close to what we deem acceptable but still need refinement, which we are currently working with the manufacturers to solve.

Thanks, as always, for your continued patience and support.
