Its not everyday that you order a hundred stepper motors, but thats exactly what I did two weeks ago. And now they are here! 

The motors have been one of the biggest issues in scaling up production, since there arent any great producers here in Europe. But after a lot of searching I found a supplier in the far east that can handle the volumes and has a reasonable pricing, but most importantly - can deliver in weeks and not months. 

A big shipment of screws are now the last parts that I am waiting for before I can start to sell the next fresh batch of Satrans. Hopefully they'll arrive this week *fingers crossed*
