Dang it! This resiliency thing is a lot of work! Getting the M1 Kaveman Kits off the ground is turning out to have a lot of hiccups, mostly to do with my tendency to plan something and then procrastinate the execution. So, to keep myself on track and share with you what is going into just producing 10 sets of a testbed product, here is my To Do list:
Order #1: 6 ea 12×24” sheets kydex, 3 OD, 2 Black, 1 Earth Brown; 1 pk rivets, rivet set and die, Chicago screws
Order #2: Tin boxes
Order #3: 20mm compass
Order #4: Grenade pouches
Order #5: Machetes
Order #6: Old Hickory Knives
Order #7: Ferro Rod
Order #8: Wood Working vise
Local Purchase: Padding for kydex press, Fox whistles, PVC glue, spiderwire, snare wire
Make: Kydex press
