Welcome to OVEREADY Insider 86
We make nearly every part from scratch, giving us direct control. Over both the process and the result. We can add features and set quality standards not otherwise possible with off the shelf sources. And choose the best formats to achieve our design goals. But making everything from scratch also means being more vulnerable to supply chain disruptions. Which happened repeatedly in 2020-2022, reducing our ability to make things. Having resolved most of these issues, we are restarting full production this year.
First off the new mill at the new machine shop is aluminum Future Heads, seen here in raw form:
Attached to a Retro 70 body, the iconic form starts to take shape:
To which we add our bezel and trademark Distressed finish, completing the visuals:
Making and installing our custom driver brings BOSS to life and we are now making these (along with the parts above) in quantity:
This year’s effort has several important releases, beginning with Distressed 70, now available in all popular 519 models:
Waiting for this to happen naturally, we can expect new releases every 6-12 months, eventually getting back to 2019 levels, several years from now. Unsatisfied with this pace, we’ve been digging through the OVEREADY archives. Finding flashlights and parts long forgotten.
Collectibles, remnants, rejects, and testers. All in one place for your enjoyment. Most items are rare and will disappear after the only one is sold. Now available for sale in our new Random section. The faster these items sell, the more new things we can make at the same time, restoring full production that much sooner:
Some examples of what’s in store for your perusal:
- More BOSS parts are already in production for insider 87
- As we increase variety we’ll also be increasing availability, reducing stock outs on featured models
- Our new Random Store is ongoing, you can expect new items to be added, randomly
