We have done it. The last of the Filastruder Kickstarter machines has been picked up. I would like to start out by saying thank you to all of the amazing backers.

We would also like to say thank you to Tim Elmore and the Filastruder Team. This has been a rewarding experience and everyone at OSP appreciates this amazing opportunity.

To say thank you and celebrate our success, we are offering 15% off everything in the store. Using the code 15off when you are checking out and you will receive 15% off the entire order. This code can only be used once and applies to everything in the store. This offer ends 12/3.
