I PMd grok to suggest that he either take preorders or do a kickstarter, if funding was the primary issue. No reply.

Here's another great example of why folks should read the thread before posting or sending him a PM...

Funding is *NOT* the issue.

I did read the thread. Yes, the whole thread. In post #633 he talks about not having enough time. While funding is not the only issue, it's an issue. If he's got enough preorders he could contract manufacture them (also mentioned in another post).

I'm sure that if he had reached the decision of "selling the Harmonizer design or licensing it" he would certainly post about here, just as he said he would. You're certainly not the first to mention "pre-orders" to or crowd-funding to him...

And I don't believe anywhere in the thread did he ever mention funding as being any issue... Besides that he has had any number of people here (myself included) offer to fund his efforts. It's pretty obvious he has other things going on in his life that are far more important to him than building, selling, licensing, etc. his "Harmonizer" designs or product. He has stated that very clearly and concisely. Why is it no one seems to be able to take him at his word?

He has said he would post here when the units would be available again, if ever. Hard for him to state it any clearer.

Personally, I want him to continue to build his twin-cylinder model, and go on to make his four-cylinder unit, too. But honestly, I can readily understand why he might choose to never make another "Harmonizer" ever again if people keep pestering him about it.

Imagine if you had clearly stated your intentions, as well as the reasons you weren't making your product at the moment, but then people kept sending you PM's asking when, when, when... Or repeatedly telling you over and over the same things about how you should run your business... Or kept dropping not so subtle, rather selfish hints how you should make them one of your product right now.... How would you feel?

But to each his own.

I would like to see Grok continue selling the Harmonizer as well, but wish him well which ever way he decides to go. I would hope that untill he decides that everyone respect his privacy.
No doubt we will find out soon enough, but untill then a little patience would go a long way

Be patient guys. Subscribe to the thread and set on your email notifications for updates.

I'm sure he knows people want his product so just give him time.
