This is fire! The form is great but i would optimize your use of space. Maybe talk to a factory and see what the longest block you can order is without sacrificing cost. Then optimize your use of space you can fit more switches on the version you have that you have slots i think.

I hate this, it's absolutely useless and not practical to keep when not using. You don't need to make everything in the hobby aluminum and group buy. No pricing makes it almost impossible to give any feedback, but I doubt a lot of people will buy 200usd group buy lube station.

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that your extremely dislike our product. We do agree that not every product in the hobby should be made of aluminium. However, we chose aluminium due to its physical properties, such as weight and surface coolness, to better communicate the design aesthetic and form while giving the consumer a premium or luxury feeling while using the product. Despite not knowing the price, we would much appreciated design-related feedback and it would be much more useful than simply saying that you hated it. Anyhow, we appreciate your interaction. Thank you.

I like the way it looks, but I think that it will be too expensive and I would not want to pay that amount for a lube station. If price is good then I don't mind it. GLWIC

First, i must say i really love the idea and the base design of the station.
I also like the color scheme and luxurious look it has.

Unfortunately, in this current design stage, i would not buy. Here's why:
- I do not like the layout you offer, lot of wasted space.
- I do not want switch openers on my lube station, but it's a cool idea. Maybe offer 2 layouts (with/without?
- Just like my keebs, i do not want inscritptions on top, a logo is cool if good looking.
- I would prefer to have a slot for both parts of a switch (top/bottom) on the station, not the bottom only.
- I would like the Top/Bottom/Spring/Stem of a single switch to be grouped together, for people who use a break-in machine and prefer not to mix parts.
- I would really love some adjustement legs on the bottom rear to angle the station towards you.

I am just sharing my personnal preferences, feel free to ignore them if you disagree.

With the improvements(at least to me) i mentionned, i would gladly pay 200$ for such a lube station. GLWIC

We're happy to hear that you liked it. I do agree that for this design, the price would inevitably be higher than most lube station out there due to its construction material, but we will try our best to keep the price as reasonable as possible. Thanks.

Thank you. We will do our best to keep price as low as possible, but in the end it really does dependent on volume as well.
