Kessler Prototype?

Chris, when is the nice extendable crane prototype on Youtube going to be released? It is a really impressive product. I just hope it doesnt cost an arm and leg to ship. I owned a kessler in the past and it was one of the best things I had. Too bad I could keep it due to space constraints. A collapsable crane sounds really sexy.

We are anticipating the Pocket Jib will be ready within the next 2-3 weeks. The machine shop ran into a couple of delays, but we are expecting the parts very soon.

Once we have a firm release date set, we will announce it and begin taking a limited number of pre-orders. The pre-order price is set to be $999.95.

Forget magazine write-ups... you want to do a web site write-up. Specifically, *this* web site!

Machined parts are on the work bench. Just have to figure out the assembly. :-)

Almost there.

Pocket Jib Swivel?

I use one of your original swivel heads with my Kessler. Is it compatible with the pocket jib? Does it or can it be modified to have drag?
Thanks
Brian
