I've been assuming that these tool heads will release 9/7, but I recalled that we don't release things on Fridays.
@eBeardslee @Megan @kenhara do we have an optimal day to release on that we can move to the next week?
@jessica @bowman logistically are we going to be okay on stock for a 2nd week of September release?

Fridays are bad because news gets overlooked over the weekend.

Monday-Wednesday of the following week would be ideal.

Tuesday or Wednesday are nice because it gives us time to get things in order.

So, I'd say: Tuesday September 11, 2018 or Wednesday September 12, 2018

Incidentally that will line up with IMTS

Provided we receive the packaging materials to box them up, we should be good to go.
Right now we have everything except [DC-MS0073] Filament Warning Insert, 8.5" x 2", Astrobrite Lift Off Lemon and that should be here early this week.
We currently have 50 tool heads already built and waiting to be boxed.
We are building more this week and should have all of the initial request of 150 completed by mid-end of next week (8/31).

@adam - The additional 300 parts from E3D are in transit. You should have more than 150 in IL, CA and Retail for release.

@adam as soon we have a finalized date, please let @Megan know so she can start initiating sharing information with resellers.

If we could finalize the date and price point today even, that would be great.

How about Wednesday September 12, 2018 for $300? Coinciding with a display unit and press release for IMTS?

I would prefer Tuesday in order to give us more time to react if anything goes wrong, but Wednesday works.

Done! Tuesday it is :)

Some concerns have been raised about getting lost in the Sept 11th anniversary media - what are everyone's thoughts about pushing back to the 12th?
@eBeardslee @Megan @kenhara have we explicitly stated a release date yet?

@adam We have not finalized this date anywhere, pushing to Wednesday September 12 would not be a problem AFAICT.

@adam I agree, I don't see a reason it couldn't be moved a day.

@adam As long is it isn't on the latter half of the week I am good with this

@eBeardslee the 12th is a Wednesday so we will have a couple days before the weekend.
That being the case, let's push back to Wednesday, Sept 12th and avoid news/announcement conflicts.
