Guess csmi is 1 man company, possible have main job in addition, possible on travel now and then. Someone have asked the same question before if I recall. He will for sure come back to you when available. (or your mail ended in spam mail, possible try send from another email too)

That's a neat lookin website, I'll look more into that.
I've got a 946 that I designed a thumb for, rough mock up printed and placed, then I realized the 2 additional fluid lines are in the way and it won't work without looking good. Fortunately I have a 4200xl that needs ( not really) a 4 way valve to accept a thumb. Perhaps in the coming months I'll enlarge the current thumb to match the new bucket and go from there. Did you end up getting an excavator?
