    Rupes iBrid Status

    We know everyone is very anxious to receive their new Rupes iBrid Kit (including Mike Phillips! ).

    The good news is that as RUPES' largest distributor in the U.S., we have more headed our way than anyone else.

    The bad news, if you would like to call it that, is the shipments are coming in small batches. Today we received a handful of units.

    We appreciate everyone's patience - the wait has been killing us as well. We received a lot of pre-orders for the new iBrid System, and we will be fulfilling them in the order that they were received.

    A few of you will be receiving a shipping confirmation later today.

    Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

    I wonder if I will get one by the end of summer if I order now... or if I should just wait until AG has them in stock and put the money towards a new extractor for now.

    Re: Rupes iBrid Status

    I got mine today
    Having 2 issues

    1 I thread the counter balances till motor moves, followed by the backing plate..turn on and whole things comes off after a few seconds
    Only does this with the counter weights
    Backing plate stays attached to counter weight and counter weight untreads while machine is running

    If I screw green adapter and brush, it stays attached

    Other issues is the direct drive button doesn't engage/stay down
    With red counter weight I can push button down, but it doesn't lock in and just pops up when I release pressure
    With blue counter weight it won't even let me push button down..
    This is with it on off position

    Did everyone that received theirs have 2 empty circles in their case too?

    Are you using the spindle lock button to hold the rotation and tightening the eccentric down with the included wrench?

    Not sure what you mean by 'direct drive button' - do you mean the spindle lock? That is only to be used when attaching/detaching your eccentric set and it is spring loaded so it only stays down when pressed. [/quote]

    Where were these 2 circles? If under the tool cut out space in the case those are supposed to be there.
