There are similarities between Revomaze and the telescope company. Both have a single person responsible for making the critical components. Both have long waiting lists and backlogs of orders.
One big difference is that the telescope list doesn't cost anything to be on it, no prepaid or down payments. No guarantee that he'll still be making the model that was ordered by the time he get to your name on the list. When a scope is ready, they contact the next name on the list and ask them if they are still interested in buying it. If so, great. If no, the next guy is offered the scope. In the meantime he encourages you to use any number of other fine scopes that are available on the market. There's no downside to being on the list.
Not sure this method would work for Revomaze but the fact that Chris no longer accepts prepaid orders is a step in the right direction.
