Looks like I'm in on run 2, which has been delayed. Estimating early to mid-June. Ordered last August.
 
I just received an estimated delivery date for Run 1 on the Spike mill. April 25-May17!!

Really looking forward to this upgrade for ease of use changing mill gap settings (malted oats vs barley).
Just received a notification the mill is shipping today (or at least the label was printed)!!
 
I received the mill this morning. The packing is excellent and well secured. I also bought the bucket lid adapter. The screws do not match up exactly to the locating holes on the bottom of the mill. It will be an easy fix for their second run of lids but I’m guessing all the lids in the first shipment are off. It’s an easy fix with a hand drill and bit but nonetheless an adjustment I need to take care of. Otherwise, the mill and components look excellent.

For what it's worth, the holes on mine lined up well enough that I could get the screws in without any drilling. So there might be some part-to-part variation, not on every bucked adapter.
 
Is there any official guidance on using conditioned grain with this mill? I imagine it would at least be a good idea to run a pound or so of dry malt afterwards to keep the rollers from getting too damp. But if it will void the warranty or something, I’ll stick to dry milling!
