To my valued customers and supporters over the last four years,

Thank you all for your support. I've done a lot of work on a number of projects over the last few years, and have enjoyed working with all of you. Today I am announcing my decision to discontinue new developments for CESM indefinitely. I recognized a while back that I was starting to lose interest in the repetitive tasks of designing the parts that I sell, and the recent failure of my signal products to sell, compounded with mediocre C636/M636 sales, has pushed me over the edge. 

As part of this move, here's what's happening:

  • I will be refunding all open orders for the C636/M636 and signals
  • My shapeways shop will remain open
  • The C636 design files will be moved to my shapeways shop
  • I will be closing the ecommerce portion of my website
  • Etchings and other spares will be available by contacting me at

If you'd like to follow my future developments I will be updating this page periodically.I've had a great run at this. Thanks again to all of you.
