It Grinds, It Fills, It’s the Mighty Grinder

Hello, and welcome to Cloud Riders Store, where I design, manufacture and sell accessories for Storz & Bickel Vaporisers (source manufacture). At the moment I’m working on few projects, the Mighty Grinder is the main one. It’s a Grinder that fits on the Mighty & Crafty vaporiser, using a similar filling aid device so you can grind right into it and savour every trichome. Also I’m in the middle of moving from Melbourne to the Netherlands and I’m almost finished designing and testing a Charging Stand for the Mighty.

I want to start with a big ONE,

The Price:

Up until now, I couldn’t commit to a retail price, I had a target price when I started working on this project, but throughout the quoting phase I wasn’t sure if I will be able to achieve it, but now I can say with confidence that the grinder set will cost between $45 – $50 USD.

That’s for the set, of one grinder & one filling aid, the option of adding filling aids will be available, incase you need more than one filling aid, one for each strain.

Shipping will play a big factor, at the moment shipping is really expensive, but I have to say; This is very, very close to the price I had in mind when I started this project, I wanted my product to be smart, good looking and affordable.

And here we are, this is the only grinder in the market that is made to fit the Mighty & Crafty vaporiser, and it’s made of high quality materials with a slick design and affordable price tag.

Regarding the design, I have made a slight change last week after using the filling aid for a week, I decided that I hated the thread. so I made a custom thread, and as you can see in the picture, the old thread on the left, it was a standard thread, and you had to turn 3 X 360 degrees to open or replace the lid or the grinder.

Old thread Vs New thread

On the right the new thread.

Now it’s only 55% of a full circle to open or close the lid or the grinder, which will get me good reviews according to my son, he thought the old thread will get me bad reviews, I totally agree.

Moving to a different subject, at the moment I’m working on few strategies to bring this product to market:

The first one is to find dealers in Australia:

Now I obviously prefer to find one dealer for Australia that will order a minimum of a 1000pcs and that way he get the exclusive retail rights for Australia and I get to launch my product.

A less favourable option will be to have a dealer on the East Coast and a dealer for Melbourne and Perth.

Or I have to find five dealers one in each city.

All these options are on the table.

Another strategy is, And as you know from my previous post, I have started a Pre-Campaign there, Link if you like to sign up

And a third strategy of ordering a 100 pieces, where the Aluminium is made on CNC and the plastic is 3d printed, that way I can bring a small patch.

The downfall of the third option is that, the 3d print quality is not as good as the moulding and it’s far more expensive, four times to be exact, but I don’t have to buy moulds for the first run.

Marketing wise, I will be recording a video this weekend with the prototype, showing how it works and explaining the product.

That will allow me to start my campaign on Indiegogo.

So that’s it for this week, I feel like this post is the end of the week meeting, it’s good to tell even if no one is listening.

Until next week ☮️
