All this stuff arrived yesterday. Kickstarter made this order possible. It's funny, though- I ordered 1300 worth of copper, and it arrived in a box that weighed in at 120 pounds. That box was impressive- it FELT like it could cost that much. This box was about 10x10x4, and weighed less than a pound. It didn't really feel like 570 dollars. I can't wait to get some of these masks going, though.
