Garagistic Adjustable DSSR Product Release: Design, Features, and Install Guide

The Garagistic Adjustable DSSR: Overview

The Details

We know most of you guys have been waiting for the much anticipated re-release of the adjustable DSSR design. Well, we are proud to announce its here and better then ever. First off, we want to thank everyone for their patience and support through the prototype and design process.

As they say, great things take time, and our adjustable DSSR is no exception. During the design phase we wanted to revisit some of the initial design considerations for a more improved product which offers better adjustability and add some key features based on the feedback we had gotten. As you all know, we here at Garagistic prototype, design, and produce our product line on our in-house state of the art equipment like our 3D scanner, printer, CNC mills and CNC lathes. This uniquely gives us the rather exclusive ability to change and refine product features to ensure you receive the best products possible at affordable prices!
