No problem, and yes that's correct these won't fit Matsui racks.

I’m confused about this. Are there two types of Matsui Racks? From what I was reading on this forum I thought Matsui racks held 43mm chips but fit in a standard birdcage.

If I go with 43’s I would definitely be interested in a 1000 chip rack. Maybe a focus on the 1000 chip size would be best as that is a standard industry size correct?

Pretty sure matsui racks are longer. I bought some recently to test fit but haven't got around to it yet.

I'm still in for some heavy duty 1000's (or 1200's eventually) if we want to take another crack at this. I'm wondering if...ah...some certain future offerings may spur the locals into gear on these birdcages?

Not too late, but I'm still trying to amass orders to try to get better pricing for higher quantities. I'd like to get at least 10 before proceeding with any models.

Is it too late? I would like to purchase a 1000 chip bird cage. Do these come with racks?
I do have Heavy Duty birdcages available, 3 left if it's something that works for you. Otherwise these medium duty birdcages will be a little while longer before we get enough orders to start an order.

I have racks available as well, though not included in the price.

Out of curiosity for all the MD weight birdcages (600, 800, 1000) - will they have this clean welded edge? or the plastic corners?

They've been designed to have the plastic corners. I don't think we can do the clean edges due to the thickness of the acrylic. The HD birdcages are 1/2" acrylic whereas the MD ones will be 3/8". Not sure if there's enough meat left to chamfer the corners and have enough material left for the bond.

Do you think that Medium duty 1000 43mm chip rack carriers may take off sooner? I think you would be filling a larger void for me anyways

I did a poll a while ago and these were the favorite. 43mm was close behind though. I might just bite the bullet and get these made, then sell them rather than gauging interest. If you build it, they will come...

I am interested in heavy duty birdcage, 1000 capacity, with lock, plus racks required to fill it fully. I will likely be there for your Dec tourney, Tony, so can I buy them off you then?

Yeah sure, that's cool with me. I don't have any of the birdcages with locks at the moment but I'll get one added for you.

Dude...I got one of these cages, and it's awesome. I've taken my whole Rounders set on the go with it, it's that solid.

None of them are made yet, this GB was posted to get numbers for the order but we haven't reached any of the goals yet.

I will probably just go ahead and get these made in the new year. I'll just pay upfront and hope they sell. If you build it, they will come, right?

Awesome. I think I will definitely be down to buy a 1000 chip carrier, and perhaps one of the others as well. Please put me down for one 1000 for now. Thanks!

Are there any pics/reviews of any prototypes on these forums?

@T_Chan, do you have 4 color, poker size, jumbo index cards? If yes I would like to pick one up as well. Neither my wife or I can play at the upcoming tourney but I will drop by to purchase the rest of the items.

Sounds good. Sorry no prototype photos yet.

I don't have any of the 4 color right now, but I have a shipment of them waiting for me at my WA mailing address. I'll be picking them up probably next week. I am just waiting for 1 more shipment to arrive (Warneke chip boxes) before I head down to pick up everything together.

Put me down for preorder of 5x 1000 capacity
You got it!

Oh, I just found this. I would probably prefer an 800, but if it helps them get made I will take a 1,000 since there is more interest in that one.
