Instant Lab – Do Not Adjust Your Set

Hey, here’s a heads up for all you Instant Lab fans: make sure the tower is raised all the way, so you can count five segments…

20130505 Instant Lab Test PX600

Poseidon without my glasses on

My test unit had a slightly sticky final segment, so I thought it was telescoped all the way. I was about to contact the Impossible Project and tell them they’d sent me a lemon, but I decided to sleep on it. A bit more force on it the next day, and out popped the final segment. Glad I kept it to myself – wouldn’t like anyone finding out my user error! (You won’t tell anyone, right?)


Five Segments!

To be fair, this sort of thing is exactly what the test process is for – the guys who make them know that there’s meant to be five segments showing, and now the instructions make it clear. Also, my production unit which arrived last week, is silky smooth in its action.
