News are a bit scarse and a bit far in between for R2 series.. I hope that this series will receive some love for 2018 and that some kind of momentum start to pick up. :)

Yes, I also hope that Chris will get up to speed now and I really believe it too. I don't know how long time it takes for Chris new machine to produce all parts for one R2 puzzle but the machine is at least up and running and I think 2018 will be a fantastic Revomaze year!

Being able to produce in-house is big. I know the machine can only work so fast, and it seems like demand is at an all-time high, but hopefully Chris will be able to hire some outside help to do some of the work that is able to be outsourced with the increased interest.

I know I'm not the only one who would gladly order some R2s once they are actually in stock.

Sorry to intervene.
As far as i know is the new machine Emco EM25 not the machine to produce R2 type of puzzles, as it has a maximum diameter of 85mm for the blank.
This is the machine to produce every forthcoming R1 of the revo series.

Dorothea, the shaft that the chuck on the new machine is that max size. Then you attach the oversized metal blank disc to a shaft adapter in the chuck, two pieces so to say. Then let the CNC machine do its thing. And Yes, the max diameter shaft blank is that size but there are creative ways to mill an oversized aluminum disk that would be the R2 bottom piece.. Chris is very creative. I remember he said the old machine took over 8 hrs to just mill one bottom section of an R2. His new machine should cut through the aluminum blanks like butter. I for one can't wait for the R2's to start flying off the CNC machine. KIRK
